I have been looking for the last hour, and I can’t seem to find what I’m looking for! We are just sending out our STD’s right now, but this is going to be a problem with out invites as well.
My FH and I are hosting the wedding. We also do not live together. Who’s address do we use, and who’s name?
I am planning on moving in with him in the beginning of summer, with the wedding being in July. So I think it makes sense to use his address. But does my name get included?
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

A good rule of thumb is to use the address where you want your gifts to go; people often send gifts to the RSVP address / return address (you probably want to keep these consistent to avoid confusion among your guests). So it would make the most sense to use your FH’s address for this reason. You don’t want gifts and RSVPs showing up at your old place — you’ll be getting lots of those in the beginning of the summer.
Either use just his name or both (although, for a return address, just an address is sufficient — and may even be more proper etiquette-wise). Using just his has the benefit that Great Aunt Maude isn’t scandalized by thinking you’re a loose lady… he he. Or, you could use both names to let everyone know where you will soon be living if Great Aunt Maude-types aren’t an issue.
