Some streets lled out, and some are written in numbers. Find out which way it actually is, and address it that way.

Times are written out in words… 12 o’clock, becomes twelve o’clock on an invitation, but streets should stay the way they are written by the post office.


Hope that helps

How is it written on the road sign itself? Is it 50th or Fiftieth? If I was driving I would be looking for that exact wording or number…

For example … let’s use Fifth Avenue in New York City. Here is a picture of the sign:

If you wrote 5th Avenue, I would not put two and two together that they are the same street, and I would be looking for a street with a number 5 on the sign… and GPS will not be able to “find” it either!

i would definitely confirm these addresses with the post office.  you don’t want invites going astray.
