Just wondering what address you used when you addressed your Save-The-Date Cards.
My Fiance and I live together, but I was thinking about using my parents address with just my name. Although, some of my Fiance family doesnt know me THAT well, so I dont want to chance them throwing it away. Does anyone know what the standard operating procedure is?
1234 Parents Address Ln
Honeybear & Mr. Honeybear
1234 Our Address Ln
3. Dont put a return address.

We used our own return address.
We live together and everyone invited knows that we live together so there was no issue there. And I wanted people to know that questions regarding the wedding were directed atus and not my parents.
But I don’t think it really matters.

i put other, but actually i voted wrong, for the stds. my hubby and i lived together so for the std i put both our names and our address, but for the actual wedding my mil asked that we just put my name (with our address) since his family is pretty traditional (not that they ever objected to us living together–they just are traditional about etiquette). i honestly never thought about using my parents’ address–they live in a different part of the country

I am sending these out this week! I just made return labels that say:
HisLast & MyLast
But I don’t think that we’re sending them to anyone who doesn’t know at least one of us well, and we’re definitely not inviting anyone who is tradtional enough to care that they’re coming from our joint address. Also, the only reason I put his name first is because I like the way our names sound that way.

Fiance has a P.O. Box, so we put that address.

My parents are hosting our wedding, the invitations were issued in their name, so the responses should have gone back to them. However, it worked out that they would be out of the country for the first three weeks from when the invitations were sent out. I was not going to be able to wait three weeks until they returned home! The decision was made to have the responses returned to my FI’s address (we live 1500kms apart).
It would have been impractical to have them returned to me because I only get a mail delivery every two weeks and will be moving house in 10 days to FI’s, and the response date is Christmas Eve. I should be packing right now!! Can somebody sternly tell me to get my arse off WB and deal with the junk room, please?
Edit: oops! I did not see that this was for STD’s! But we put FI’s address on them too, as that will be our marital home.

Our Save-The-Date Cards had our return address, as did our wedding invitations.

@Entangled: So you only used last names? Thats a good idea

@HoneyBear: Yeah, I honestly have no idea about what’s proper for a lot of this stuff and we’re not very formal people, so I just went with that because it sounded nice and we both have pretty recognizable last names.

I had a stamp made that has both our first names and our address (we live together). That way, if any were returned in the mail (a few were), I would know right away and send out another one asap. I left off our last names so that it wouldn’t be too confusing (do i put my maiden name, our new last name, etc.)
HisFirstName + MyFirstName

We used my parents address, even though my fiance and I have been living together for 3 years. My parents are paying for the wedding and my mom was the one who ordered the save the dates.
