How To: Address Wedding Invitations
Whether you are more modern or staying traditional, addressing your wedding invitations can be confusing! Here we share some insight on how to properly address your guests!
Family (inviting children):
To a Married Couple That Use Different Last Names:
*If you are more traditional: an unmarried couple living together has each name on it’s own line*
Use the same rules as you would for any other unmarried or married couple. If the couple is married, list the names on the same line or you can list their full names without titles if you prefer
As a rule, write a person’s full name rather than a nickname
How to add “and Guest:”
It can be a little impersonal or awkward to address an envelope: Mr. Robert James and Guest. Here is where the tradtional two envelopes work well. The outer envelope should be addresses: Mr. Robert James
while the inner envelope can say: Mr. Robert James and Guest.
Using one envelope? You can include a note with your invite: “Dear Robert, You are welcome to bring a guest to our wedding. Please let me know.”
