Addressing Wedding Invitation Envelopes


When addressing your wedding invitation envelopes, there are a few key rules to follow.
The most important: Spell it out. Abbreviations should not be used on your envelopes (with the exception of Mr., Mrs., Ms.).

Envelope addressed to doctors
When a married couple are doctors, you address the envelope with "The Doctors" followed by their last name.

When only the male is a doctor, you would address the envelope with Doctor and Mrs. James McQuire.

When only the female is a doctor, you would address the envelope with Doctor Susan and Mr. James McQuire

Envelope addressed to a couple who live together but are not married
When you are sending an invitation to a couple who live together but are not married, it is most traditional to put their names on separate lines.



When you are inviting children who are under 18 and live at home, their name should be included on a separate line. If you are inviting children who are older than 18 or who do not live at home, they should be mailed a separate invitation. 

If you are inviting a family with several children, it is perfectly fine to address as Mr. and Mrs. William Petrnol and family.

People often wonder how to address a divorced female on the wedding invitation envelope. 
In this situation, use Mrs. or Ms. with her maiden name if she is no longer using her ex husband's last name.
