I need a little help! If my parents are hosting, do their names/address go on back of flap of invite, as well as the RSVP envelope? Can I use a stamp for both, or am I supposed to write both (I cant afford someone to do them) Or can I have it printed on there with a computer. Anyone have any examples?? THANKS!

@masterteee2013: If you have their name on the invitation itself then you shouldn’t need to have their names on the address areas for the RSVP unless you want the RSVP’s to all go to their house. Some brides do this so it looks a little more proper. If this is the case make sure all of the return address match (eg, the return address on the invite envelope and for the RSVP).
Modern brides usually put the names of the couple on the addressing areas. If you are worried how that will look you can register for a P.O. Box for a few months while they are being returned.
You could also put a sister or your MOH’s address and ask her to keep track of them as they come in for you (Yay! One delegated task!).
And you can can do a stamp or use a computer. I used a computer for the last wedding I designed for and they turned out great; I just hated fighting with the computer to get it to print on the labels and envelopes right. I am definately doing a stamp for my own wedding. I wish I could convince all brides to go for this! Plus side is if you get one with Both of your names on it you can use it as long as you live there. 🙂 I saw a way to have it designed so it didn’t look so much like it said Mr. and Mrs. Smith…but I’ll have to find it on my Pinterest…

So I was planning on having all RSVP’s go to parents, because I thought that is what you are supposed to do, is this wrong. Can they go to my house (I live in MO my parents live in NE)
Who’s name goes on back of invitation flap outside envelope ? My parents?
Thanks for the response! So confusing…plus are you guys writing yours/hiring someone/ printing or stamping?

Normally if the invitation is worded as if your parents are sending the invite then you should have their name and address on the back flap of the invite. If for some reason you cant or dont want to use their name and address you can just use your address without a name at all (people arent going to know if its yours or your parents without a name). That way if there are any undeliverables they will come back to you instead of your parents.
For the RSVP envelope I would address that to whom ever you want handling your responses. If that is you then you should have your name and address on that envelope.
Attached is an excample of what it would look like either way –
