    I’ve never seen it the first way.  Traditionally, it’s Mr. and Mrs. (him) Lastname.  Good luck!

    Traditionally it’s Mr. and Mrs. John Smith.  However, I personally hate this.  All of mine went out as “Mr. and Mrs. John and Linda Smith” even though I know this is wrong according to etiquette.  None of my guests care 🙂

    The right way to address envelopes, according to etiquette, is with the names and titles that the person receiving the mail prefers.

    So if your Auntie Jane Smith married Jim Bob Jones but did not take his last name and prefers the title Ms. (in the U.S. titles get a “.” afterward) then you would address their letter to:

    Mr. Jim Bob Jones and Ms. Jane Smith

    If your FI’s cousin, Mildred, is far more traditional and has married Peter Brown, their mail should be addressed to:

    Mr. and Mrs. Peter Brown

    When you send mail to your BFF, Janet Black who has worked really hard and is now a pediatrician, and her husband Andrew Thomas (who is not a doctor) you would address their mail:

    Dr. Janet Black and Mr. Andrew Thomas

    because an honorary title always goes before a regular title (like Mr. Mrs. Ms. or Miss)
