I am fixing to address my Save-The-Date Cards and I am unsure what to put for the return address. My Fiance and I DO NOT live together. He lives with his parents and I live with my sister. Neither of these places we consider ours…but really, they are the only addresses we have.
I plan on writing “The future Mr. & Mrs. ….” or something cute… I just don’t know who’s address to use. I am the one keeping tally of the RSVPs but I know my sister will get annoyed if she starts receiving a bunch of mail, plus her postal service sucks where she lives. But I don’t trust his family to keep track of the mail. Thoughts?

I would just use one of your addresses for now. It’s better for your sister to be annoyed than for your FI’s family to lose the mail.
And you can put both your names. We put our first names “John and Jane”, added the last name for the thank you notes after the wedding. Try not to have it too long though, sometimes the post office doesn’t like that.

texaslemon: I would think logistically whom ever is tracking RSVP cards would get them mailed to their place. I voted to send to you as I presume you are assuming that responsibility.

Depends on who is helping to plan the wedding/paying for the wedding. Ultimately if you are doing most of the work, I’d send them to sissy’s! Addressing it is all up to you.

texaslemon: Don’t put something cute on the return addresses. Put the name and address to which the postal service can return mail that is not deliverable. That is the purpose of a return address.

texaslemon: I say since you keeping a tab on the RSVP you should mail it at your sis/your house. Rather your sister get annoyed then your fiancé family loosing the mail. Plus I think your sister will understand if all of the suddent she is receiving extra mail since she knows you are getting married.

Unless guests have to RSVP to your Save-The-Date Cards then there shouldn’t be much in the way of return mail. Are you doing invitations or save the dates? On mine, I simply had return address labels with my name and address on them.

Have it mailed to your sister’s house. Also, use your actually name- not something cutesy.

People don’t respond to STD’s, as they are strictly an FYI kind of thing. They will respond to a wedding invitation, tho, so then you ight worry about the return address.

on our Save-The-Date Cards, we did postcards and just put the address. we did not put our names on it
this was our STD, the black box on the right side is where our address was located

What about renting a P.O. Box? They are fairly inexpensive.

Fiance and I lived with our respective parents until 3 weeks before the wedding. Since I was the one handling the addressing/mailing/responses (once we sent invites), I had them mailed to my parents house. BUT I put Hislastname/mylastname followed by the address.

Mail them to whoever is keeping track of the RSVPs. My fiance and I don’t live together and we will be using my address (I live with my mom). I will be moving in with my fiance at some point before the wedding. I will be keeping track and I check the mail every day. My fiance checks his every few weeks.

I would address them to whoever will be working with the RSVP’s that get sent to you.

I would do your sister’s address (with your name) on the Save-The-Date Cards and likely would look into renting a PO Box for the actual invitation RSVPs.
