Are you going to have your last names anywhere else in the STD?  If you aren’t, you should have the return address with your last names so that people are sure which John is getting married.

I think both first names would be fine.  Especially so the calligrapher won’t have to write as much!  I just meant that I might be confused if I got an STD for Mary and Bob’s wedding if I knew a lot of Marys or something, not that people aren’t paying attention to your relationship!

You don’t actually need any name at all for the return address. If you want it anyway, I’d acutually suggest doing last names only (that’s how I’ve seen it done whenever I’ve seen names at all)–Just “Doe – Birds”

That is SOOO pretty.

I think we’re just doing first names OR last names, but not both. Too many words for our names. 🙂

I agree with LittlestBirds that your return address is absolutely darling. Please share

where you are getting it!

That’s an adorable return address SweetheartDealer! We just did first names on our return addresses.

@Sweetheart Dealer — I cannot get over HOW CUTE that is. Man, I have stamp envy. I wish Fiance and I were settling down somewhere after we get married and I could have cute stamps like that. Apartment life…

@Littlest Birds — I think if you have your full names on the STD, you’re fine doing just your first names on the return addy OR you could leave names off all together and just put your address. Fiance and I used our first names only for return addresses on our invites and RSVP cards — but then again most of our families already know we’re “living in sin.” 🙂

We ordered a stamp as well, with just our first names.

I’d just put the address! Less complicated!

We put

“Last Name” (his and my soon to be new one)

“Address”
