Envelope Etiquette 101

Are you wondering what to do when addressing an invite to someone who kept their maiden name? Or if a couple is living together but unmarried? Addressing envelopes is probably one of the questions that I answer over and over again.






Married couple with the same last name
Outer: The husband’s full name (no nicknames), preceded by “Mr. and Mrs.”
Inner: Don’t use first names; in this case, it would read Mr. and Mrs. Harbin


Example:
Mr. and Mrs. William Harbin
9319 Oak Bluff
Columbus, Ohio 43215


Married couple with children under 18 living at home
Outer: Children’s names are left off the outer envelope
Inner: “Mr. and Mrs. Burleson” on the first line; children’s first names on a line below

Example:
Mr. and Mrs. Bradley Burleson
125 Magnolia Circle
Birmingham, Alabama 35213


Married couple in which the woman has kept her maiden name
Outer: The wife’s name appears first, on its own line; “and” indicated marital status
Inner: Place “Ms. Olsen” on the top line; “and Mr. Hayes” is written below

Example:
Ms. Olivia Olsen
and Mr. Ethan Hayes
62 Waterfront Road
Seattle, Washington 98118


Married couple in which the woman is a doctor
Outer: The woman's name is placed first, if the husband is also a doctor, the address is either "The Drs. Werner" or "Drs. Barbara and Robert Werner."
Inner: “Dr. Werner” is written first; “and Mr. Werner” appears second
Example:
Dr. Barbara and Mr. Robert Werner
3747 Valley View
San Francisco, California 94107


Unmarried couple living together
Outer: The guests’ names (ladies first) are written on two lines, without “and”
Inner: Write “Miss Stein” on the first line, with “Mr. Richmond” below

Example:
Miss Christine Stein
Mr. Joshua Richmond
43 East 92nd Street
Apartment 6D
New York, New York 10128

Single person with a date
Outer: Address this envelope to only the guest you know personally
Inner: The words “and guest” are added. For example, “Mr. Paris and guest”. And never capitalize Guest.

Example:
Mr. Matthew Paris
1686 Stanhope
Dallas, Texas 75225


Final Tips and Tricks:


  • Never use first names on the inner envelope, except for children’s
  • Spell out state names, plus words and terms such as “Street,” “Road,” “West,” “Place,” “Post Office Box” and “Apartment”
  • Whenever a woman’s name appears independently - no matter the reason - it always goes on the first line
  • Include titles such as “Doctor” or “Judge” only if guests use them both socially and professionally
