Hi bees. I need advice, again. What is the correct way to write the return address for the wedding invitations? I am going to write it on the back flap of the outer envelope. Fiance and I live together. Should I put both of our names? Or just mine? Or neither of our names and just our address?? What have you all done??

Sorry I’m not too much help. My fiance and I don’t live together, so I just put my address on the back (without name), as I didn’t want his side to feel as though he wasn’t being included in the communications.

Actually, that does help alot. So it is ok to not put any name and just the address?

We live together, and I plan on either putting both of our names or just the address. Sorry that didn’t really help. I still haven’t nailed down the return address. The stamp that I had made (and we used on the back of our save the dates) said Chris & Lauren and then our address.
We had a couple returned (for wrong address) and they came back fine with no last names. I’m sure if it were just the address it would be fine as well.

I think were going with just the address… and when I say we I mean I… we live together… and I was playing around on the invitations site… I just didnt like the way to looked to spell out both our names… and my FH has no concept of what all wedding details entail. I show him a few options and he picks…h

I was just reading an old thread on this topic, and most of the ladies were saying they put both first names and their address. I think this is cute. I’m between both first names and no name at all….hhhmmmm….

We just put our address on the back flap. We had plenty of invitations that were returned, and they all came back with no problem!

We just did the address and no names.

Yes, it is okay to just do the address without names; BUT if you live in an apartment, make sure that your apartment number is very clear; otherwise the mailman won’t know which box to leave it in.
Ours just say our first names; no last names. I like it, but it is a more casual vibe. I also don’t see a problem with just your last names, ie “Smith and Black.” That’s more formal.
