On outer envelopes, you write the name and address. For example:


Mr. and Mrs. John Smith

123 Main Street

New York, NY


On the inner envelopes, you simply write who you are wanting to specifically invite. For example, with a family you would write on the inner envelope the names of the children as well:


Mr. and Mrs. John Smith

Bobby, Timmy, Ashley, and Lisa


If you are inviting someone that is single, on the outer envelope you would write:

Mr. Dan Miller

123 Main Street

New York, NY


On the inner envelope of a singe person, it is common courtesy to let a single person bring a date:


Mr. Dan Miller and guest


BASICALLY, outer envelope is for the address and inner envelope simply states exactly who you are inviting.

I totally agree.

If you are having a less formal wedding, it is totally acceptable to use less formal names on the inner envelope, but you should still use the formal address for the outer.  Example:

Outer Envelope:  Mr. and Mrs. John Doe

Inner Envelope:  John, Jane, kid 1, and kid 2
