(Closed) No inner envelope…how to list names?

Might depend on how complicated it is, but since we’re inviting everyone, our envelopes say “the such-and-such family” for those with kids or “person a and person b” for those without. We aren’t using titles but I imagine you could do it exactly the same way if you were. If we weren’t inviting the kids, we’d do the family ones the same as the couple/single addresses—just two adult names listed.

We didn’t do inner envelopes either, in an attempt to be eco-friendly.  I listed everyone on the outside envelope.  I sort of made up my own method of addressing, attempting to include the first names of the women, which doesn’t always happen.  A lot of my friends are physicians, many have not changed their last names or are not married, so it was tricky sometimes.  I indented the line below the parents and put the kids’ names.  A couple of examples:

Mr. John & Mrs. Jane Smith

Mr. John Smith & Dr. Jane Jones

      Kyla and Mary

Dr. John & Dr. Jane Jones


Mr. John Smith & Ms. Jane Jones

      Kyla, Mary and Adam

You could write a quick personal note on the inside cover of each invitation listing all their names like below.  It would add a nice personal touch, although it would be a little time consuming.

Envelope would say:

Mr. and Mrs. John Smith

Inside of invitation would say:

Dear John, Jane, Bobby, and Betty – can’t wait to see you there!
