Including a Guest

If using inner and outer envelopes:

  • Outer envelope reads: Mr. Stephen Richard Humphries

  • Inner envelope reads: Mr. Stephen Richard Humphries and Guest

If you’re only using one envelope, include a short note with your invitation. Example:

Dear Stephen,

You are welcome to bring a guest to the wedding.

Please let me know. Regards,

Michelle (If time allows and Stephen supplies the information, you can send his guest an invitation, too.)
