<<a guests' list would a list that belongs to all the guests or a list that is meant for all the guests.

Maybe a list that the guests get handed with do's and dont's.>>


How about a "guests' do's and dont's (handsomely and usefully gotten up) libretto/list"?


<<Like: do say hello to your anfitriant when you arrive.

<<I forgot the english word for lesmas.>>
