If your parents are paying for the wedding, traditionally you put their address.  That means good ol’ mom will keep track of responces and gifts for ya, but if that’s an issue just put your address.  If you two are paying for the wedding-put the address where-ever you’d like to receive the rsvp cards and gifts at ๐Ÿ™‚

We also don’t live together so I just used my physical address with no name above it. I’m the more organized one and will be keeping track of the RSVPs, etc. Plus, I’m sending out the invitations as opposed to my parents who live in a different state.

Traditionally, you put the name of the person hosting.  So if mom’s hosting, put her.  If you and your Fiance are hosting, put your name ๐Ÿ™‚

Ho ever is taking care of the RSVP’s – All 6 parents (2 of FH’s and 4 of mine) are paying for things, but I’m a control freak and need to handle my own RSVP’s so they are coming to me.

I say just put your name on the back with your address.

Actually the etiquette section of the Crane & Co. website says that the back flap of the envelope shows only the address, no names.  They have a nice section on the various problems of addressing the various envelopes involved, as well as other stuff:
