Hello! Can someone tell me who the response cards for the wedding invitations should be addressed to? The invitations are sent from my parents (the parents of the bride…), but my fiance and I want to keep track of the responses and we don’t live near my parents. Is it inappropriate to have the response cards go to our mailing address even though the invitations are sent from my parents? Just wanted to see what the proper ettiquette is and if there are flexible arrangements. Thanks!

I don’t think it’s inappropriate at all. Almost all of the invites we have received were technically sent by the bride’s parents but the RSVPs were addressed to the bride or groom.
From my research (I had this same question when I was doing invites) I found that it was considered more traditional and formal to have them sent to the bride’s parents, however, that seems kind of silly- especially in your situation.
ETA: I doubt most guests will even notice.

Something’s weird here – my comment didn’t appear. Maybe it’s because I included a link? Anyway, on the Emily Post web site, they simply say to carefully consider what RSVP address to use. Which to me says: there is no rule.

I think they should just go to whoever is tracking them. My friend had hers sent to her wedding planner…
