I used the Crane and Co. guide on their website as my go-to. I didn’t need too much additional help. I did mine in a spreadsheet with a columns for formal salutation (Mr. and Mrs. Steven Smith), street address, city, state, and zipcode. I spelled everything out that should be as I made the list. If you do inner envelopes, you’ll also need a column for the salutation on that envelope.

I haven’t had to do this (and my invitations won’t be written out formally) but I would divide it up. Start with marrieds. This shouldn’t be too difficult once you know the form for Mr. and Mrs. SameLastName. Then your single friends without guests. Single friends with guests. Couples with children, etc. Just do one of each “typle” then you don’t have to keep looking it up and can use your prior ones to keep the form the same. Hope that helps!

The only thing I can think of right now is that things like Street and Road should be spelled out.  Traditional etiquette says that the state should be spelled out as well but the computers for the post office don’t really like that.

Also, try to find something not too scripty so that there aren’t problems with the readers.
