You should always spellout everything on the envelope, except for Mr., Mrs., Miss. Also, when possible the apartment # should be on the same line as the street address.  If not it takes longer for the post office to process it.

I agree with Chela429.  The only abbreviations I used for the invitations were the titles Mr. and Mrs.

For the save the dates, I was less formal and consistent.  I wasn’t as tuned in to the the addressing rules (and had not found the weddingbee) when I sent those out.  Personally, I think that Save-The-Date Cards can be more informal. 

Good luck!
