I don’t know what to do. FI and I are supposed to close on our house feb 13. I don’t want to jinx anything and use the new address as it is not pfficial yet. We are having a wedding with 99% out of town guests in august so STD need to go out this month. FI and I have an apartment now that our lease ends in about 8 weeks so we will be somewhere else for invite sending time. Also some of his family do not know we cohabitate, as they are very old fashioned. Having one return address may indicate this. UGHHH can I leave that spot on the envelope blank? Is that awkward I don’t know what to do- HELP!

Use your current address, and have your mail forwarded to your new address. It’s free!

We were in the same boat, so I used the return address as our parents’ … My side’s return address was to my mom’s, his side’s return address was to his parents’ house.

Can you use someone else’s address, like your parents? You need to have one to know which invitations don’t make it to your guests. I would just put the current address and have your mail forwarded when you move.

I’d just leave it blank. If they really need your address they’ll ask. You can put a return address on your proper invites

@Tbblount: Use one of your parents address as the return address if possible (provided they’re not moving soon too!). With all your moving around, the last thing you want to worry about is tracking down those RSVPs. This might also help with hiding the fact that you two are already living together.

@Tbblount: Why do STDs need a return address? Just give a contact phone number (and email if you want) in case people have questions. Then have your new address when you send invites in a few months’ time.

@paula1248: In case they need to be returned to sender 🙂

I wouldn’t risk any not being able to be returned if needed!

@Lollybags: good point! that way if any did need to be returned to sender, you would know to get the person’s proper address for the real invite.

You could always rent a PO Box for the time being, nobody would be the wiser!

@happenstance: Good idea, with the P.O. box. A small one wouldn’t be that expensive. I don’t know how many people use the return address to send gifts, though?
We didn’t have any save the date magnets returned, but my sister had 2. We’re re-checking our addresses, before the invitations go out. One of my sister’s invites just dissapeared – forwarding order had expired and it didn’t come back to my parents house. We think whoever lived at that address opened it, saw it wasn’t for them, and threw it out.
Since some people we primarily communicate with through cell phones, texting, and e-mail, including the annual holiday letter, it’s easy to fall behind, with current addresses.

either use one of your parents’ addresses or use your current address.
