I need some help! Here’s the situation- we’re sending an invititation to a friend who who is in transition with work. He recently moved and is living in a hotel for the time being until he gets situated with his new job. That being said, we’re just planning on sending the invite to his place of employment. Here’s the dilemma…how the heck to you word this using proper ettiquette?? Normally, you just write everything out…but that would just be crazy! The address below is the actual one, minus, of course, the details…
0000 NE MLK Jr Blvd, Ste 301
City, State Zip Code
Thanks in advance bees!

I would probably just address as the following:
c/o: John Doe
1234 Love Street
City, State Zip
If it’s long, then so be it. Just center everything on the envelope

You can put the suite number on a separate line if there isn’t enough space.

Hey Bees…I’m sorry! I appreciate all your help, but maybe I should have been more specific about my question! I’m just unsure about writing out the actual address. I know etiquette states that I should write out the address…so it would look like this:
0000 Northeast Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard, Suite 301
well, that looks too crazy! should i abbreviate anything to make it look better?? if so, what?

I think address etiquette is not important. I ended up putting the addresses down exactly as that person had written to me. Blvd is fine. NE is fine. The post man is not invited to your wedding, and he’s the only one that’s going to read that part, in my opinion.

Yes you should write out the street address. Put the suite # on the line below.
Practice a couple of times on paper the same width as your envelopes so you get your writing small enough
The person’s name should be first:
c/o 0000 Northeast Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard

If you really absolutely do not have enough space I think it would be ok to abbreviate one of the words. (I would do NE.)
