  • Wedding: July 2014

Not sure if this is 100% “correct,” but it’s what we did:

For the families/kids:

Outer envelope: The ______ Family

Inner envelope (ours was actually just a tag on the belly band): Listed the names we call them, both adults and children (so something like Aunt _______, Uncle __________, (child’s name), and (child’s name).

On the RSVP card, we had a “___ seats have been reserved in your honor,” which we filled in.

Unmarried living together:

Outer Envelope: Ms. HerFirst HerLast and Mr. HisFirst HisLast

Inner Envelope: HerFirst (or nickname) and HisFirst (or nickname)

Unmarried couples living apart: we sent an invite to each person, addressed only to that person.

Good Luck!

we’re going very informal, so Jack & Jill would work if its unamarried, Jack & Jill Hill if Married.  The Hill Family works well for the group with kids.
