So I’m going to order a custom address stamp for invites. My Fiance and I have lived together for years, we own our house together. Is it inappropriate to have a stamp with both of our first names? Most of our families know we live together but I wasn’t sure if it was something anyone would think was “bad” since we’re living in sin 😉 Just so you know what I’m thinking about, this is the stamp I’m considering:
Any opinions are appreciated, either way! 🙂

Honestly, I don’t think anyone would notice.
(Also: mmmm ice cream is yummy!)

We’ve lived together for over 2 years now and used both our names on the return address… didn’t think twice about it, lol!

I did both of our names on our return envelopes, I didn’t really care if anyone thought negatively of it. We have been dating for six years, so I would think most people we know would assumed we lived together long before we did. Then you can use it afterwards!!

*whew! Even just these three responses are making me feel better. I come from a pretty liberal family and his is fairly conservative, my side I know wouldn’t bat an eye but I truly don’t know what to expect from his side. I guess if they don’t approve of us living together it’s not like we’d change our arrangments anyway! 😛
All I can think about is ice cream, hence my silly answer at the bottom of the poll 😉

if anything, people will assume that you chose 1 address for wedding stuff.

We also live together and I just sent out the save-the-dates with both our names on it. I don’t see a problem with it, especially if everyone knows you live together.

I would definitely use both of your names. I dislike the phrase “living in sin,” but honestly I really don’t think you’ll be judged for your address label. I would assume most of your guests know you well enough to know where you live and even if we werent living together, I would want both of our names on the return address and the RSVP address (your wedding is an event for both of you, so the guests who don’t know you live together probably wont think anything of the address label anyway). Plus, you’ll be able to use the stamp again for thank-yous if it has both your names 🙂

Yeah, it’s pretty well known that we live together, I’m SO no worrying about it anymore. This is exhibit A of why WeddingBee is so awesome 🙂
I do have another question though! :/ Ok, so I go by a nickname, we’ll say…Jenny, but should I have Jennifer put on the stamp or Jenny? I feel like my nickname isn’t very “professional” and doesn’t look as pretty in cursive (ha!)…what do you ladies think??

I like the stamp, and yummy ice cream 🙂

I don’t get this concern and I don’t think anyone will think badly of you. Even if my Fiance and I weren’t living together, I still would have put both our names and only one address on the envelopes. Some of his guests don’t know who I am so they may have been skeptical to open the invite if only my name was on it (same thing goes for my side if only his name was on it).

Haha… we just ordered an Etsy stamp too. Yeah, this might create some waves in my family. I am almost positive that my aunts (very traditional and conservative) don’t know we’re living together. Maybe I’ll handwrite the address for their envelopes and put the return address as my parents’ address…

It doesn’t matter unless you’re trying to keep it a secret that you live together (which, honestly, if you own a house together, doesn’t make too much sense at this point… 🙂 If you’re worried, maybe have family who know break the news that you’re living together to those who don’t?
