My parents will be paying for about half our our wedding expenses so I plan to use their address on the invitations/RSVP Cards. Do I also put my parents return address on the Save-the-Dates that I am DIYing? FI and I are in our mid-thirties and do live together now. However my parents are very traditional so I think I may use their address but it seems odd since I am making them? I would love your thoughts! Thanks!

If the STDs have any first-person words in it like “we’re getting married, save the date” then the return address should be yours. Otherwise if the whole thing is in third-person like “please save the date for kentuckygirl and fi’s wedding” then use your parents’ address for consistency.

I think it should be your address. My parents are like yours, but I put my return address on the STDs. That way, if I had the wrong address (happened once) it will be returned to me so I can fix it before I give the final guest list to my mom.

My parents’ names are on the invite, and they’re footing the bill, but we put our address on all of the rsvps, etc. I would have had to drive an hour to their house to collect all of the rsvps, and since we’re keeping track of everything ourselves, it had to be ours. I think my mom was glad that I did it that way, so she doesn’t have to worry about it. Plus I’m slightly OCD about organization. =)

I’m just about exactly in your situation. We’re in our mid 30’s, already live together, we are paying for some of the wedding and my parents are paying for some of the wedding. I already sent the Save the Dates out and I used our address. But, I will use my parents address for the invites. Not sure what the proper etiquette is but that’s what I did.

We’re in a different situation (we may be moving in the middle of this process, so will probably use my parents’ address since it will stay the same). However, if we weren’t going to be moving I would probably use my own since I would like to handle everything myself as far as guest-count, addresses, etc.
