That would really bug me!  I think that it is rude.  Maybe get your Fiance to say jokingly “did you forget her last name?”

Sounds weird to me, lol . . . am I understanding this right?  She writes your FI’s first and last name and then follows with your name only?  I have never heard of that.  Hmmm, don’t blame you for wondering.  As far as should you say anything, I wouldn’t because it seems rather minor.  But, of course if it really bugs you, yes, get your Fiance to ask his mom what is up with that?

i have a fsil who does that – but even worse she does Ms. Herfirstname Herlast name &  mynickname – what?!? can you not remember how to spell my whole firstname? Am i only worth two letters?  I don’t know, I tend to take things like that personally, but in the end, i have never said anything about it

I think it’s weird, but I don’t think it’s something to be offended over.  She’s not getting anything out of not writing your last name on a package.  It’s just a weird thing.  If it bothers you that much, have your Fiance bring it up…but, don’t be offended.  Life’s too short to get offended by the little things!

Weird but not offensive.

Sounds like she’s trying to be fancy, but she doesn’t know how to address things properly.

I wouldn’t think anything of it. Probably because my dad didn’t know my DH’s last name for the first 4 years of us dating, even though we’ve been friends since we were 13 and our parents are neighbors. LOL. I would just be pleased that your name was on it given how my Mother-In-Law is.

I’ve gotten holiday cards for us at my house, addressed as MY-FIRST MY-LAST & HIS-FIRST. Sounds like it’s her way of letting you all know it’s for both of you- I wouldn’t take it personally.

I personally wouldnt care about something like this, it just seems really minor to me.

I think it’s weird, but I wouldn’t take it as an insult.

Are you sure she knows how to spell your last name? Or it could be possible that she thinks that’s the correct way to address things.
