I’m having a bridezilla moment (my first) which is pretty good since I got engaged last September. Ugh so mad at myself. Got my invitations today, got my stamps, got the addresses and was going to get these beauties in the mail by Friday. I must have proofread them 10 times, fiancé too. Everything is spelled correctly. When we got the email to proof the return address to the RSVPs it looked great, address right, we told them to print. Got them today address right, BUT our names are not on there, and they weren’t when we proofed them, we honestly thought names were automatic like the invittions. Ugh I feel so dumb right now. I already spend close to $250 on invites I really dont want to pay more for new envelopes and I really wanted to mail them since technically I am behind. I could hand write our names but think that looks horrible and really shows off my gigantic mistake. Ugh I don’t know what to do, can they be sent back with out our names on it? Thanks for letting me vent

Yes they can be sent without the names, I think that’s pretty common for RSVPs. Don’t worry about it!

You can send them without names or you can print them on clear/white avery address labels.

totally fine without the names. We had a custom stamp that said “mynewlastname” with the address for the back of the envelope.

Could you do the names in special type (like cursive), maybe on a colored label to make it look intentional? Or could you do a monogram (not sure if this is appropriate before you’re married) in place of the names?

I didn’t put our names in the return address.

I like the suggestion to add them in with a special font. Our invitations have a script for the names and then the address is in a more basic font, so you could add them in that way.
Have you asked the company if they can print them again?

It is not standard to have your names on the return address for the invitation envelopes. Your names should be written our in full on the reply envelopes, but for the address on the flap of the invite envelopes, you don’t need your name. (Ours have only our address–the only person who will be concerened with it is the post office in the event they need to return it. And they don’t care who, just where)
