    I think it depends. Are you doing like black tie formal, if not I say lose them.

    What is the feel of your event? If it’s a fancy evening dinner it sounds perfect– if it’s a backyard BBQ lunch, not so much… But it all depends.

    I would skip it then– plus it’s that much less writing! 🙂

    Just for the record, “Mrs Jane Doe” is not a formal form; it is a business form. The formal social form is “Mrs Doe”. In that specific case, it is exactly one fewer letters to write.

    If you want a vintage eye-witness to the nineteen-forties, I routinely called ALL unrelated adults “Mr”  and “Mrs”, all the time. Except my nanny 😉

    I’d skip them, just because I wouldn’t know what everyone at the wedding would PREFER to be reffered to as. Some people don’t like being “Mrs.” so and so, etc.

    Personally, I like titles on envelopes.  But if you’re not going for a formal feel, then maybe you could drop them.
