I am inviting several women I work with who are married but I do not know their husbands. How do I address the inside and outside of the invitations? Do I need to find out their husbands names and then address to Mr. and Mrs. His First Name and their last name on the outside? Or can I address the invite to her only on the outside and then have her name and then his name on the inside? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Officially, you should have both their names on the outside and inside envelopes.

To do it properly you should find out his first name and last name as you listed… how formal are your invitations? To put his name on the inside, you’d need to find out his name anyway. 🙂

You can invite them via their first and last names. I’m sure it would be fine as it’s not often you run into people who are very strict about etiquette and would really care.

Well it sounds like either way you’ll need to know the husbands’ names, so you might as well find them out and put them on the outer envelope as well. I think it’s like any other plus-1–it’s always more polite to find out their name, and I think that’s especially true when it’s a spouse.

This is pretty much how I was leaning, too. Thanks for the confirmation!

Are you planning to mail them or hand them to them in person?

I will be mailing them and they will be fairly informal.

Cool, I was just thinking that if you were handing them to them in person there’s not really a need to do both envelopes. But yeah, I agree that you have to find out their SO’s names either way.
