Not sure if I should post this here or in paper, but wanted to get the your perspective on this.
I owe the designer our invitation wording on Monday and I got stuck on the return address on the RSVP envelope.
Although our parents are not assisting us financially with the wedding, we wanted the invitations to include them as hosts because they’ve always been so supportive. However, I don’t want my parents to receive the RSVP envelopes.
So, my question is what address to put on the envelope? FI and I live together, but don’t share the same last name yet, so would it just be my name and my address?
I’d appreciate any suggestions you might have!

We also live together and don’t currently share our last name. I just put his first and my first on the return RSVP with our address, since we are the ones keeping track of who is coming to the wedding.

You should put your address.. there are a couple ways you could do it:
1. The Future Mr. and Mrs. His last name
2. your full name & his full name
3. your first name & his first name
4. just your name or just his name
Pick whichever makes you feel comfortable.

We’re jointly sharing the cost of the wedding, and it it worded so that people know that on the invitation. But I am the one in charge of the RSVPs. Fiance hasn’t touched them. But also, my apartment place doesn’t know fiance lives there(he is not on the lease), so I put my own name on the envelope. Not fiance’s name. I don’t want the apartment place seeing both names written on the envelope by accident. But I just did that to be careful: only the mailman sees the mailboxes.

I really love, “The future Mr. and Mrs.”!! Why didn’t I think of that? Do you think that would work with the post office? We live in a huge apartment complex, I wouldn’t want the mail to be undeliverable.

@Nati-Lyte: I’m sure as long as the apt. # is clear and the last name is there it is trackable.

You can pretty much put whatever you like for a name, they just care that the address and postal/zip code is correct.
I have a friend that sends me mail regularly to various nicknames, and it’s never been a problem.
I did both our full names to our shared residence.
