I had 3 questions about address STD postcards.
1) For an unmarried friend who will be getting a +1 on the invite, do I address the STD as Jane Doe & Guest? Or just Jane Doe?
2) For a married female co-worker who still uses her maiden name, do I address it just to her (Jane Doe), her and her husband named separately even though I’ve never met him (Jane Doe & Joe Schmo), or do some weird hyphen thing (Mr. & Mrs. Doe-Schmo)?
3) Mr./Ms./Mrs. necessary for STDs?
I will definitely keep things more formal on the invitations so there is no question as to who is invited. But I wasn’t sure if there was a casual way to go about it for the STDs.
Thanks for your help!

I asked a similar question a month or so ago when we were sending out our STDs. The general consensus was that you do not need to put an “and guest” on STDs, you can save it for the invitation. Otherwise, we addressed them as we would invitations “Mr. and Mrs. X” or “Mr. X and Ms. Y” if they have different last names.
ETA: I didn’t see your last question, I think it’s totally up to you. I think postcards are not as formal and you can either put titles or leave them off. I don’t think there are as specific of etiquette rules surrounding STDs!

When I wasn’t sure how to address to someone, I would put the person I was inviting’s name and family. I’m not sure if that’s the ‘correct’ way, but it was my way lol i’m not one for formalities, especially on a STD card! When I sent my brother’s card, because he and his wife are divorced and live apart, but spend alot of time together and she still comes for Christmas, I wasn’t sure what was appropriate, so that’s why I did it that way: Mike Smith and family 🙂
