Addressing envelopes

SQUISHSeptember 25, 2002

I am giving a Halloween party and I have already got started on the invitations. I am using a printed Halloween regular sized paper (decorative computer paper), with all the info printed out.

Anyway, I was going to use the half-fold size envelopes, (greeting card size). The only problem is that a lot of the guests are still single and I can't find a inner envelope to address the inside. Example: John and guest

So what shall I do?

Thought about addressing outside like this:

Mr. John Doe and guest

555 Elm Street

Wherever, SC


Is this wrong to do??

It is a Halloween party, southernstyle bar-b-que, BYOB.

Any other suggestions?

I would just address the envelope to "Mr John Doe" and save the "and guest" for the invitation.

For a party that is informal, I'd write it on the invitation itself, even if you have fully printed invitations. Just add a note that says 'please feel free to bring a guest!". Or put it on a separate piece of note paper and insert it in the envelope.

If you're not comfortable with that, it would, IMO, be perfectly acceptable to put '& Guest' on the envelope.

We run into this situation at work when we do invitations for certain events. Since the wording on the inside of the invitation is done on the computer, I use two versions. The following is a little formal, but you can tailor it to your own needs: for singles: "May we cordially invite you to...."; and for those who have significant others: "May we cordially invite you and your guest to..."
