Here is what we did (we are having a non-formal beach wedding, fyi)

Outside envelope: Mr. & Mrs. Charles (Chucky on friends who would be ok with it) & Carolyn Cheese

RSVP cards (no inner envelopes): Mr. & Mrs. Chucky & Carolyn Cheese

We will be using more informal names on the escort cards and other things that will have their name. I am giving one escort card to each couple but 2 for those in the wedding party and their spouse/date (we are having a head table).

Hope that helps!

We did Mr. and Mrs. John Doe on the outside and just first names on the inside. For people where we only knew them by nicknames and weren’t sure of the real name, we just put the nickname.

We’re doing what LittleBear described, but that’s just because I hate the Mr & Mrs Chucky Cheese formula.  No offense to anyone, it’s just my personal preference to include both people’s names.  I hadn’t even though of hte nicknames though, but we’ll probably just do that on a case by case basis.

I did this b/c I refuse to write Mr. and Mrs. Charles Cheese:

Mr. Charles Cheese and Mrs. Carolyn Cheese 

It’s not at all correct/proper…but that’s the way I roll:)  The only exception was FI’s grandmother who is Mrs. Charles Cheese (his grandfather passed away, but I think she’d prefer that).   We did not use nick names etc…but also no middle initials or names. If they have different last names, I put the woman’s name first unless it was a girlfriend we did not know at all or the man was a Dr. of some sort.  I also did not put different last names/unmarried couples on different lines though I think that’s technically correct.  I think it devalues the relationship.  We’re also not doing inner envelopes, though.
