this is a situation where i think you can call to clarify and straight out ask her if your fi is invited. she’s planning on such a short timeline that it might have just slipped through the cracks to address it to both of you.

I would just call and ask. To me it sounds like she meant to invite him since she spoke to you so recently and the fact that it was her mom filling it out. Did your sister’s SO get invited? 

You were planning on inviting her fiance/husband, right?

Yep I agree I would call her and say that you are excited to attend the wedding and were wondering if your Fiance could join you.  If she is in a rush to get things done they probably just skipped addressing inner envelopes to save the time.

I would call about that one.  Just tell her your inner envelope arrived blank, so you’re wondering if it’s you or you and your fiance that are invited.

Why is she in a hurry to marry? I am just curious as she knows your wedding was first?

I would call as well.  I think it was very thoughtful of her to call you when she decided her wedding would be before yours.  Im sure shed understand if you called to double check rather than just assuming.  And you said her mom wrote the invitations so she may not have known either!

Do you and your FH live together?  If you don’t the outside envelope would normally be addressed to the resident, so maybe it’s just a mistake.  I second the advice to call and see what’s going on.

@Future Mrs. Awesome–why’s it matter?  She checked with the OP to make sure she wouldn’t be stepping on any toes.  Not everyone needs a long time to plan a wedding.
