AIBU to be worried about this?

I’m hosting a party and have sent out email invitations using Paperless Post.
I invited two former colleagues who I was close to when we worked together but who I haven’t seen much since I moved jobs about 18 months ago. Let’s call them Claire and John. They still work together and are good friends.
I’ve just realised that I accidentally sent Claire’s invitation to ‘Claire and guest’ but John’s just to John. Both are currently single but might have dates / friends etc they want to bring.
I’m now worried that John is going to wonder why he doesn’t get a plus one, and I am even more worried because he recently came out as gay on social media and may think it’s connected? It definitely isn’t, but I am worried it may look that way.
Am I massively overthinking this? And should I send a follow up message letting him know that he’s welcome to bring a guest?

Just message John and say he's welcome to bring a guest? 🤷🏻♀️

Can you not just e mail John, “ just following up on the party invite, please bring a guest if you like. We can’t wait to see you!”?
