no it wont get lost in the mail lol. I get mail for the people who used to live in my apt all the time so obviously they don’t care about the name, just the address.

 

I’m sure its fine.

BurlapnLace:  Doesn’t matter. As long as the address is correct the mail will get delivered. I still get junk mail addressed to the 2 previous owners of my house – it’s not like the mail person is going to look at the names and decide it doesn’t get delivered b/c the last name is not on there.

No the names don’t matter, it’s not like the post office has a list of residence in a home. It only may get lost if you live in a house with a bunch of people and there are several other Jane’s.

I addressed my RSVP envelopes to just our first names.  We live together and are hosting the wedding so it made sense that they come to us.  Since we live together it made sense they were addressed to us both.  It seemed too clunky with both first and last names so I went with first only.  So far I have not had any trouble receiving RSVPs back- don’t worry, your envelopes are fine!

BurlapnLace:  I always address with return address with just ‘Joe & Chelsea’, until we have the same last name it’s just too much to add both of our last names, especially since they’re both long. Lazy? Maybe, but it always works haha

It’s fine! We did the same thing, first names only, for the return address when we addressed our invitations. We actually called the post office and they said to not include both our last names (ex. Jane Smith and John Harrison) because it’s too long and they don’t like that. 

For our thank you cards after the wedding, we put (Jane and John Harrison) though because I took his last name.

BurlapnLace:  Are your full names, including last names, on the invite? If not, state your full names on the return envelope? Why? Because if I am writing you a check, I need to know how to spell your last names.

USPS-wise, mail man don’t care. He’s looking at the address. Tell your mom that if it works for “Current Resident,” it will work for “Jane and John.”

BurlapnLace:  The only thing that really matters is the address.  We only put our first names on the outer and RSVP envelopes too and we received our RSVPs back just fine.

Yeah, I think you’re fine! We have friends that his last name is Huckleberry and her last name is Murphy and we send things to “The Murphleberries” and it gets there just fine!
