So, I’m going to start off by saying that I have only been to two weddings in my entire life and one was super laid back and the other was in a small town so invitations weren’t even sent out.
I’m planning on sending out my STD’s by August or September so I’m organizing all of the addresses for everyone now. My question is whether or not to send STD’s to couples who are not married or living together but my Fiance and I are friends with both people. Should we sent one to each person or just one to one address and address it to both people? Am I being to OCD about this?
ALSO… when sending out save the dates were you ladies formal with the names and addresses or are you just going to be formal with the invites?
Thanks so much in advance!!

I think that the way you handle these Save the Dates can be the first indication of how your wedding will be. If you want a formal, classy affair you should probably be more formal with the addressing (i.e., Mr. and Mrs. John Doe). If your event is going to be more laid back, you can be less formal (John & Jane Doe, regardless of where they live).
Our wedding is outdoors and casual, so we addressed everything "John & Jane Doe" and sent them to the closest friends’ address, even if they weren’t living together.
Good luck. 🙂

If you’re going to send the couple one invitation, send one STD. If you’ll send one to each person then do the same with your save the dates.
And like missmck wrote, if your wedding is formal then write Mr. & Mrs.

I agree with the above two posters on how to address the STDS. But if you are inviting a couple who doesn’t live together, I think you should send them each a STD — not just one. "Etiquette" says unless they’re living together, they should each get a separate one, but besides that, I think it avoids a lot of hurt feelings along the way.

If you’re inviting a couple who don’t live together BUT you’re friends with both of them, I’d send them both a STD.
Way to be organized!
