Before dropping your wedding invitations in the mail you might want to check these points, according to Emily Post!

  • Double check the spelling of your guests’ names before addressing the envelopes.
  • Invitations are always addressed to both members of a married couple.
  • An invitation to an unmarried couple residing at the same address is addressed with both names connected by “and.” Use one or two lines, depending on length.
  • No abbreviations or middle initials are used when addressing formal invitations.
  • If children are invited but are not receiving a separate invitation, their names may be written on a line below their parents’ names on the inner envelope. If no inner envelope is used, children’s names are written on the outer envelope below the names of their parents.

Brides have many concerns throughout the wedding planning process leading up to the big day and one great concern during the invitation process is if guests will bring more guests than the amount you have reserved for them. A rule of etiquette according to Emily Post is that guests never bring more people to the event than what was addressed on the invitations. Even though this is an etiquette rule, many guests still overlook this rule. If you’re worried about guests bringing more people than you invited to your wedding, let us help you with the invitation process and wording!
