No, they should just be addressed to you if you’re the one receiving them (and the one who lives at that address!). 🙂

The bride’s name and address, or her name with her parent’s address.  You don’t put the bride and groom’s names together in print until after they are married.

@eryepye I don’t think this is necessarily true anymore – for example, my fiance and I live together and are hosting and paying for the majority of the wedding.  Our return address lables will have both of our names on it, as would our RSVP cards if we had them.

But otherwise, since they are going to you where you live, I think it’s OK to just include your name on the return address label.  Likewise, if a mom or parent were collecting the RSVPs and mailing the invites, their information would go there.

I think that your name and your address is perfectly fine!  Plus, mailmen do seem to get confused when other people get things sent to your address.  I know that they were confused when my husband moved in and when I was temporarily living at my MIL’s house.

By The Way, I had only my name on the RSVPs as well.

We also live together and are paying for the large majority of our wedding, but I am more traditional and wanted to wait to see our names together until after we’re married as, perhaps old, rules dictate.  To each her own!
