FI and I live together and I’m having trouble with the return address. I really want to buy an embosser for the wedding invites but I really don’t want to spend money on something that will be totally useless after the wedding. Realistically, I probably won’t use it MUCH after this but it would be nice if it didn’t have my maiden name on it. Would it be weird for it to just say FIs last name (just the name, not The Smiths or anything like that) and then our address underneath? My parents are helping with the wedding but we are also paying for a lot-RSVPs will come to us.

Can you have your first names or first initials (ie. Yourname & Hisname or Y + H) then your address? That’s what I did for our save the STDs, with address below. It was my parents’ address but I designed the custom stamp myself so it wasn’t too expensive.

I like the idea of His name & Your name.

adoreprep: Duh, that makes 100 times more sense, don’t know why I didn’t think of that as an option

goldgoldgold: As helpful as that idea sounds, technically addresses require a last name. That’s why you can’t just write “Grandma” and then her address, you have to say “Evelyn Smith”. It helps items get to their correct destination.

My return address stamp just says “Michael and Nicole” and the address. The post office will pretty much deliver anything as long as the address is correct and legible. Think about it… We all get spam delivered to “resident” or “household.” We are currently getting RSVPs delivered with no problems. PLUS, we will be able to use it after we have the same last name! 🙂

goldgoldgold: I hand wrote our RSVP envelopes, but still wasn’t entirely sure what to put, so I just did;
HisFirstName + MyFirstName

We just did first names and correct address. And had no issues at all with the post office getting the responses to us.

You could purchase a custom stamp with your first names only. Then you’d be able to use it as long as you live at your current address.
If you’re looking for a more elegant look, you could heat emboss them!
