    For mine, I used Fi’s last name, with no first names.  We live together though, so any returned mail or RSVPs would technically come to him at our house.

    Is it possible to do a smaller order of each??  I use PearTree Greetings for my labels, and you can choose quantities as low as 12 for your labels. 

    PS, I think your new last name idea is an awesome way to represent both of you! 🙂

    @moonadea: I would absolutely use your new last name then–that’s what I did by using Fi’s.

    @moonadea: That’s ok, I was like, “Huh?”  Hahahaha… it’s Tuesday morning and Christmas is this weekend… wheeeeee!  We’re all a little slow today!

    Can you just use your first names on the return address? I know it’s not ideal, but it may make things a little easier. 🙂

    @moonadea: I guess there’s a small part of me that still listens to the “rule” about new last names only being used on things after the wedding, but you make a good point about announcing your name change.

    I love the new name idea!!  I would only caution you because of one minor thing; if people send you a check for your wedding gift and make it out to your new name, you may not be able to deposit it.  Sounds silly, but worth mentioning.  If that’s not a concern, then go for the new name…absolutely!

    I would use the new name. I ordered a ton of return labels for the STD’s and invites, with my maiden name and have so many left over. I just used them for the thank you’s and our Christmas cards, but it felt funny. LOL! I would have ordered more, but we’re moving soon, so it seemed silly.
