So i am pondering the Idea of investing in a rubber stamp for our return addressing. I like the idea because it will save time and energy in process of announcements, invitations, rsvp envelopes and thank you cards.
The issue that recently came to light was how to put our names on it? Should we do first and last names? Or Mr. and Mrs. his last name? Of course in that scenario it feels odd because we arent married until the thank yous are going out. Is it alright just to use first names? It would allow us also to continue to use it after wedding things are done as well.
How did you address your return address names?

Maybe you could do something like “The Smiths” and then handwrite a little carrot insert that points to “future” ?

We had this dilemma too and finally decided to just use our first names!

I got a custom stamp too and just used our first names.
Blurred out most of the address for privacy of course.

we got ours on etsy! They have a bunch of really cute ideas 🙂 We got a round stamp and it says husband first name & wife second name that goes around the top part and then the address that goes around the bottom circle then in the middle it has a mongram new last name inital and the last name spelled out through the K. Its really cute!!! We love it 🙂

We got just our first names on ours from Etsy. I figured we can use it again in the future whether or not I change my last name.

I bought ours from etsy with my soon-to-be last name for the exact same reason. Here’s the photo from the esty seller’s listing.

We just put our first names, but we are having a really casual wedding so it wasn’t a big deal. We loved it so much we are going to order one with our married names 🙂

we got the stamp after we got married so it could have his last name and my new last name on it. For all the invites and save the dates we got fun address stickers and stuck them on the back of the envalopes! It had my full name and my then fiances full name and address. The address stickers were fun and really inexpensive, we ordered from Vista Print

I got one from Papersource that just had our first names on it so we could use it both before and after. The stamp holder does have the ability to take different stamps so I might also get one with our last name later.

I got mine from an Etsy seller (who was wonderful) and it say’s “The Future (his last name)”. We’re moving almost right after the wedding so I wasn’t concerned about it not working after we’re no longer the future’s =) It was $30 and we used it for our STD’s, we’ll use it on our invites as well as our rsvp cards. We’ve already had so many compliments on it! I think it just adds that special touch =) And it’s fun to see your names in a stamp haha

We also used only first names on the stamp.
