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!
