    @iheartnerds:  What do you classify as causal wedding?  I am trying to label my wedding.  I haven’t even thought about the wording of my invites.

    If they were married with the same last name, they just got Mr & Mrs. Smith. I thought it would save the whole headache of potentionally offending people by putting only the guys name (eg, Mr & Mrs Joe Smith. I know I would be offended if I got an invite addressed that way – I may have his last name, but I still have my own name, thanks!)

    Unmarried couples living together got their full name on separate lines.

    I didn’t do an inner envelope, and I named the person I was closest to first – like, my aunt and her husband was Mrs & Mr Doe, and my uncle and his wife was Mr. & Mrs. Doe).

    Did that make sense?

    With us it’ll probably be a mixture of things (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Ms. Jane Doe and Mr John Smith, The Smith Family, etc) depending on who all is getting them.   

    for a friend’s wedding last year, the envelope was my FI’s FirstName LastName and Family.  Since our friend knew we were living together, I found it sweet and endearing (as in, he considers us married already, lol.)  In fact, when my Fiance changed his status on FB to “engaged”, we had a friend actually SAY that! LOL!  

    And we’re definitely going the lazy way of printing the address labels.  Etiquette be damned, I’m not killing myself over addressing envelopes.  I mange to make my wrists hurt enough without having to deal with addressing envelopes!
