I’m working on putting together our Save the Date Pamphlets (yes, pamphlets), specifically the envelope they will be mailed in, and ran across a connundrum.
How have you all worded your return label? We live together in a house we built this fall, and I’m keeping my last name.
Option 1: line 1: MyFirst My Last & His First His Last; Line 2: Our mailing/ physical address.
Option 2: Line 1: His First His Last & MyFirst MyLast; Line 2: Our mailing/ physical address.
And did you put your return label on the upper left of the envelope, or on the back flap of the envelope?

You could always just put the address and no name at all. I would probably put it on the back flap because it gives a cleaner look on the front, but I think that’s probably a personal preference thing.

No names are necessary for the return address, just the mailing address is fine. Connundrum solved! 🙂

We’ll be using just our first names.

Just use the address, like Spaniel and 2010 suggested! It’ll be a cleaner look!

We put just our first names. I didn’t do address only since I was worried that people would just toss the letter if they didn’t know who it was from.

I know some people write “The Happy Couple” or you could just use your first names as others have suggested. We just didn’t put our names at all, but then again we were using a postcard so our names were right there.

If you do your names, traditional etiquette says bride before groom until the wedding. SO YourFirst & HisFirst.
We’re in the same situation and I always put MyLast/HisLast on regular mail (birthday cards, etc). We did postcard Save-The-Date Cards, so no help there, but my friend did the same as I do for her wedding invites.
