i am more of a traditionalist – i would just put my name [or my mom’s] even if we were living together.

i am sorry that does not help much but i will be having the reply sent back to my attention.

Who’s paying for the wedding? If your parents are, depending on how close you live, you could put their name on the return envelope. If you want yours though, I say be honest; if you have a home together most people probably know even if you haven’t told them directly. Put both of your names on it.

if you live together and are paying for the wedding it can be addressed to you or both of you.  If your parents are paying for the wedding, it should be addressed to them.

When I did mine(my parents paid for most), I just had the address label read


354 bridesparentsaddress

city, IL 55555

My friend, whose parents paid equal amounts, and they contributed the same, had the replies addressed to:

Bride and groom’s wedding

444 groom’s address

city, MI 77777

I believe the reply card should be addressed to the hosts of the party (aka whoever is paying).  We live together and we paid, so we did what LatteLove described–addressed to both of us at our home.

Our wedding is split betweeen us and our parents, so we just had them sent to us.

We’re paying and our invitations are a little more casual, so we had them addressed to:

My first name & his first name

Our address

We’re not paying and still had the cards sent to our home.  I want to know who’s responding!

My parents are paying and my FH and I live in an apartment and both work full time. The replies are going to my parents ( I phone her constantly about wedding stuff, anyways) just because I figured it was safer, shes home, they live in a house, etc 🙂

It depends on who is taking care of the RSVPs. If your parents are going to be collecting and keeping track of, it should be their names. If youll  be in charge of it, your names.

My mom paid for most of the wedding, but the response envelopes were addressed to me (and just me, even though I was living with Mr. Cupcake at the time).  I knew I wanted to be in charge of the RSVPs and my mom didn’t care!  And not that everyone didn’t know we lived together, but I just thought it was safer to stick with the traditional way and put just my name instead of both of our names.

Ours are to the parents, because they are paying. But I have also just simply seen them addressed to “The Bride and Groom” then the address. I thought that was cute 🙂
