Married couple, she hyphenated (herlast-hislast), while he kept hislast.
It’s important to note that she socially goes by her maiden, his name or the hyphenated all interchangably. When asked, her response is always, “Oh, you can use whatever, it’s not a big deal.” She uses her maiden professionally (I think).
What do I put on their envelope???

I guess you’re not doing mr and Mrs, right? So I would probably write Sarah and Steve Smith (I think the woman goes first).
Edited to add that if you KNOW she hyphenated, then I would write Sarah Jones-Smith and Steve Smith.

Especially since you know she doesn’t really care, either of your first two options is fine. The third is not really correct, since that’s not his last name, so I wouldn’t use that. You know she won’t be offended, so it doesn’t really matter.

I would use the first choice, since you know that she hyphenates her name.

I would use the first or the second.

I voted “other” – I would go with option #1, but with her name first.

Since you asked her and it’s not a big deal – I’d just go with his last name.

usually i’d say #1… i think that is the safe bet. Since you asked her though you could prob just go with his last. She sounds like me… I want to keep my maiden name for professional reasons but socially you can call me anything. 🙂

Okay, I think, in favor of space, I’m just going to go with Steve and Sarah Smith 🙂
