@Starling13: Umm…why would he want your married name on them? That isn’t your name now, nor will it be your name when the RSVPs start rolling in. Just tell him he’s wrong!

It definitely shouldn’t have your married name on the return envelopes.  That’s not your name yet!

@Starling13:  His dad doesn’t get an opinion on what name you use, before or after marriage.

@Starling13:  no your fine… its just one name on the reply envelopes , thats all Ive ever seen and the way I did it. My name is what it is until the day we get married.

PLUS the invite itself has your names AS THEY ARE NOW…so why would you put it different on the return envelopes….?? I think it would look weird to have for example: Susie Jackson and Dale Smith request the honor of your presence….blah blah….and then have Susie Smith on the envelope?

if he didnt have anythng to do with the invites (as most grooms lol) typically his name isnt on it (they’re usually quite small anyways)…tell him I love you honey but your wrong! :p ….never ever ever have I seen anything but the brides maiden name. Is HE the one whos going to open them and do the counts?? no prob not right? its just an envelope to return it to the right place thats it.

tell his dad to fly a kite lol

@Starling13:  Why would a return address have no name, or only a last name? That’s weird. It’s sometimes helpful to know who you’re replying to.

I don’t get the problem. It’s not a statement about your relationship, it’s just informing people who they’re replying to. You have done them exactly right, don’t reprint a thing.

@Starling13:  yes, its just a return address… both is 100% fine. My FI’s name isnt on anything except the invitation itself!

Im assuming you mean on the main envelope as up in the corner in case it gets sent back or something??

totally fine…if anyone raises a fuss ask them where they got their info from cause its crap! 🙂

@Starling13:  Proper etiquette is for it to have your maiden name. So you’re saying you’re going to change all the invitations because your FI thinks his dad is going to get mad that your maiden name is listed before you are married (and therefore, it is still your name)? I don’t get it. Can’t you just explain to your FFIL the etiquette? I mean, I doubt he’s even going to notice, if he’s like most men.

@Starling13: Any return address I’ve ever gotten was bride’s name only, even if the couple lived together.
