I think it’s fine. I mean, if they don’t know who you are when they get it, why are they invited in the first place?

Are you putting your full names on the return address?  If so, I think you’ll be fine.  Most people will probably recognize your names together (i.e. they only know one “Greg and Cindie”) or they’ll realize who you are once they go to your wedding website and see the rest of your information.

I don’t think it’s an ettiquette faux-pas at all, but I can understand your concern about people not realizing who you are.  Are you inviting a lot of people that might not realize it’s you two that are getting married?

I think putting the full names on the return address should help people know who you are!

either that or the website will direct them along – but i’m sure they’ll have heard from someone that one of you is getting married and put the two and two together.

I think its fine! Just put full names on return (like everyone said!) Plus, you have the website, so if they are still confused, they can look on there!

Just put your pictures and names on your website? Confusion over.

For the people who will definitely know who you are, just use your cute Etsy return address stamp.  For those few who will not be sure (friends of your parents), just handwrite your return address with your last name included.

Put your full names on the envelope for the return address…

Edit: I just read above about your Etsy Stamp…

I suppose if your website has your names, you should be good.

I did the same on the Save-The-Date Cards I just put my me and my Fiance first names on the Save-The-Date Cards. I didn’t know you were supposed to put last names, but we have our pictures on it. So hopefully all the people we invite recognize us. Other wise if they don’t I really don’t want that many strangers at my wedding in the first place. I too am inviting the extended family and some distant relatives I haven’t met, but why is that obligatory?

Dont worry about it!!! Our Save-The-Date Cards had our first names on the front and our last names on the back. I thought it was fine and then Fiance told me several people at his work thought it was a business mailer for a law firm!!!!!!!!! The important people will know the date and all the details regardless so dont worry about it!
