    I would put their names if you no longer live there.

    amf9201:  I voted me and my FI’s then I read your post. Since you are sending it to your parents address, I would place their name on it.

    amf9201:  In your case, put your parents’ names. It’s their address.

    if your parents are hosting (ie your invite says something like Mr & Mrs AMF invite you to the wedding of their daughter, AMF…) then the traditional way to address the RSVP is to your parents (Mr & Mrs AMF)

    but in moderns times this rule is very flexible and you can get them sent to you…. but if you are having them go to your parents address for whatever reason then I would stick with the traditional way

    We set up a PO box for wedding RSVPs since we don’t live in a doorman building & our mail delivery can be suspect at times.  So our return address labels on the front & our RSVP envelopes were addressed to the PO box.

    It should go to the person who is collecting the RSVPs.  We extended the invitation with our parents so I didn’t have any issue with them coming back to us.
