I know that this has been asked a few times but I’m just looking for opinions. I currently live with my parents and my Fiance lives out of state. I’m trying to figure the best way to write the address for the response cards. Since both of our parents are “hosting” the wedding I don’t feel like I can rely on that piece of etiquette. I was wondering about having the response cards addressed solely to me or to “my last name – his last name wedding.”
i feel like in the long run this doesn’t really matter but as usual, it’s the little things you fixate on.

How about to you and him?

I had our response card addressed to “The Future Mr & Mrs Smith” and then I put my address

I have the return address as “MyFirst and His First” with no last names. 🙂

@MissBoston: i feel odd doing that since he lives out of state. would it be weird to have it addressed to the both of us if we don’t live together?

@airythia: nah – because it’s a response to you about your wedding, so it makes sense you’d do it together even if you don’t live together! that’s my opinion anyway 🙂

ours are listed as ‘my last-his last’, but we live together.

We just did my name & his name at our address, but i think if you used your address in lieu of, that would be fine – just guessing, no formal ettiquette info here!
Even if we lived apart, I think I would have done it this way too, so they know he’s included and I’d make sure to get the RSVP’s (control freak! lol)
FH’s sister recently got married, her and her Darling Husband lived separately and their RSVP’s were addresses to his house with his name only.

i’m doing “my first and his first” because we live together (but the future mr. and mrs. is so cute!) if we lived separately, i’d probably just put my name. maybe to “the future mrs. his last name”?

Would it help make it more clear if you were not living with your parents. Meaning, what would you be inclined to do if that were the case. If you would have them sent to you, then use your name (first and last) but if you would have them going to your parents place, I’d put Mr & Mrs Smith.

we did just our address, since we live togehter and i didnt want to offend any of my super religous grandparents or aunts. technically it should be sent to whos hosting hte events, but i had them sent to us rather than my paretns since i was the one tracking them and giving our list to the calligrapher.

I actually just had them addressed to me…Teddy still technically lives in his own house…and my family is pretty conservative and so is his…so if both of our names were together with the same address we would raise some eyebrows! I also want to be the one who receives them because I will be so excited to get them in the mail 🙂 and since Teddy is here all the time anyways we will get them together!

We were already living together, and like CorgiTales, we did MyFirst & HisFirst, no last name.

I did the same thing as Jackie-O. The Future Mr & Mrs. blahblah and then put our address.

Even though my parents are paying/hosting I still addressed them to me. I’m going to be doing the seating chart and I have everything organized at my house so I figured it would be easier for me to receive them.
