That part can be left blank.

It’s fine to leave the return address blank.

citysparkle:  It’s fine to leave the return address blank.  Though, if you haven’t numbered your invitations in case of people who don’t write in their names, it would be a good way to know who the invitations were from.  I’d say about 90% of our responses so far have come without return addresses.

I did labels. I used the same size so put one on the outer and one on the inner.

I did,  with address labels.   This made sure that i always knew who it was from.

You can do either but I think it would be helpful to address the labels so you know who they are

I am going to a wedding on May 15! On the reply card envelope, my return address was written in by the couple. I figured it was so they would be able to sort them, or whatever reason they did it, it was fine by me.

On the reply card itself, they wrote our names in. I just filled in 2 of 2 attending.

citysparkle:  To be clear, 90% without return addresses, not 90% without names!  Of the maybe 80 responses we’ve received, 3 did not have names or any other way to identify them (though amazingly between postmarks and other info, we were able to figure them out).  But yes, very few people bother to put a return address.
