- Wedding: May 2013
I’ve looked through the boards and online, but everything says something different about addressing invitations to military members! I don’t want to be disrespectful. Is the below salutation proper? His wife gave me his title, but what about the rest of the format? It is a formal wedding. Also, should I be writing out “Staff Sergeant?” I asked his wife “for purposes of our wedding invitation” and she still put SSgt. Lastly, websites say because it is formal, I need to put the branch of service.
SSgt John Military, U.S. Marine Corps
and Mrs. Jane Military
123 Awesome Street
New York, New York 12345
or is it
SSgt John Military and Mrs. Jane Military, U.S. Marine Corps
SSgt and Mrs. John Military, U.S. Marine Corps
or something else altogether?
