    Someone had just commented on this today.  We thought that The Future Mr. and Mrs. sounds nice.

    I hadn’t really ever thought of this but really like the idea of using “The Future Mr. and Mrs”  Especially on a STD.  STD seems less stuffy and proper, so something like “The Future…” would be really cute.  I might have some printed up just for that reason.

     

    Awesome post.

    Aw!  I wish I had thought of Future Mr. & Mrs!!  I just put only our address and no names at all.  I thought it looked more formal that way. 

    Honestly though, I’m sure it’s its just something normal and non-cutesy (like your names) nobody is going to take a second look at it anyway.

    Future Mr. and Mrs. is cute, but I’d feel weird using it too – I’m glad you went with what made you most comfortable! We just used our first names above our address so we didn’t have to deal with the last name issue ๐Ÿ™‚

    We just did MyFirstName & HisFirstName.  Our full names together are pretty long and we wanted it to fit on a rubber stamp so we could stamp our return address on the save the dates and thank you cards.  Plus, our save the dates had our full names on them, so I didn’t think anyone would get confused. 

    I think whatever you chose will be fine, I don’t think anyone really notices except for us brides!

    I am literally online trying to order return address labels for STD’s right now!  Great topic!  Anyone have suggestions for what to do if you are limited on space for the label?

    i went with J. Doe and J. Deer. i mainly did this, because i wasn’t sure if i put future mr & mrs. doe if everyone would understand who we were, since we didn’t put our full names inside on the save the date. my last name is long and unique, so i was sure that people from my family and friends would know who i was when they saw it! haha.

    Oh man I feel like I just made a major faux pas!  I had a custom stamp made on Etsy that just has our first names and our address so it looks like:

    hunny + bear

    1234 anyroad blvd

    city, state zip

    The stamp was just too cute to pass up!

    I’m having stamps made with just our first names for the rsvps on our invitations. And when I wrote our return address on the STDS, I just wrote “ribbons & ribs.” I’m totally not on board with the proper thing I guess!

    @HunnyBear: That’s exactly what we did.  Your stamp is adorable!

    @sarah: Thanks! I just got it in the mail today and let me tell you I have this urge just to stamp every damn piece of paper I see!  I found it on Etsy and it was only $20! Score! ๐Ÿ™‚
