Honestly, I think the person posting the simcha doesn't always know the kallahs name. That's all. It's not a frumkeit thing.

Yes and I've also seen some that write "lucky chassan" or "chassan whatever."

But I think this happens on a much larger scale than just a few people who don't know the other side's name.

Was Arpachshad important? Was Eber? The Torah mentions plenty of men that are unnecessary to the story, bring nothing more than a lineage to the story, and yet women aren't mentioned. Do we know who Rivka's mother was?

What about "ubnai baiso" on an invitation? I just got one that had that had that.

Um who carried this bm boy for 9 months, gave birth to him, changed his diapers,woke up in middle of the night and fed and raised him for 13 years? I guess "bnai baiso."

(FYI, there is a Medrash Agada that Devorah meinekes Rivka was actually her mother.)

I've seen "and wife" on old invites
I've seen names on charedi invitations
My dh's grandmother (ss) was refered to as "mrs widow"
I want either john and jane doe, or mr and mrs doe, and this is what I do

Yes - important early history who is descended from who, how we count the generations, where each of the other characters fits in. They are important for background and geneology/ lineage.

We know who Rivka's nurse was. Because she was important.
