Am I allowed a wedding guest?

I've received a wedding invitation and I'm clueless on a point of etiquette. The invitation and reply cards are made out to "Mr. Indyz", not "Mr. Indyz and Guest." Does this imply that I am not expected or allowed to bring a guest?

It seems that wedding invitations are usually addressed to "Mr. and Mrs." for couples, or "Mr. X and Guest" if the invitee is single. I'm not sure if the "and Guest" is implied in my case, or if I am being politely requested to not bring a guest. I am single and have no problem attending solo, but I do have a friend that would enjoy being my date (and that I would enjoy taking).
I would just call the couple and ask but they are the most polite people in the world and would almost certainly tell me I could bring guest, even if they meant otherwise by the invitation.
