How do you address a family on a Save the Date?
Address the save the date with both of the couple’s names. Traditionally, the man’s name goes first, but if you’re close to the woman and her boyfriend is coming as her guest, switch up the order and put her name first.
What do you write on Save the Date postcards?
In your save-the-date card message, always include the following.
- The names of the engaged couple.
- Use the words “ Save the Date.” You can opt for any other announcement of the engagement.
- The planned wedding date.
- Wedding location.
- Finally, add a line that indicates the guest will receive a formal invitation.
Do you address plus ones on Save the dates?
You should include plus ones on the obvious save the dates. These will be married couples or couples you are confident you want to invite. However, in times that you are not sure about inviting particular guests, you do not have to include them. You can always add them to the wedding invitation later.
How do you address a family on an invitation?
When inviting an entire family, the family name or the parents’ names should be listed alone, and everyone can be included on the inside. When including female children under the age of 18, address them with a Miss.
Who name goes first on Save the dates?
Tradition dictates that the bride’s name always comes first, whether on Save the Date cards, wedding invitations or anything else. This is because the bride’s parents are usually the hosts, paying a greater share of the expenses.
How do you address return labels on Save the dates?
Include a Return Address If you add a return address to your save the date envelopes, write it on the front left corner of your envelope. Or, you can add it to the back of your envelope instead.
How do you address a widow on a Save the Date?
A widow is traditionally addressed as Mrs. John Jones, but if you feel the guest may not want to be addressed that way, it’s completely okay to ask her how she prefers to be addressed. A divorced woman who has kept her married name should be addressed as you suggested — Ms. Jane Johnson.
What to include with Save the dates?
The save-the-date should definitely include your and your partner’s names, wedding date (or dates, for a wedding weekend), location (a town or city is helpful, even if the venue isn’t booked yet) and a notice for a formal invitation to follow.
When should we send out save the dates?
Send out save-the-date cards six to eight months prior to your wedding and the wedding invitations eight weeks before your big day.
Can you ask for RSVP on Save the date?
Save the venue as a surprise for the actual invitation and just include the city, state (and country, for overseas weddings). DON’T include reply cards. Unlike invitations, there’s no need to include RSVP cards with your Save the Dates.
Do save the dates and invitations have to match?
Save-the-dates are much less formal than your wedding invitations and definitely don’t have to match them or your theme. This is your opportunity to let your style as a couple really shine, or try out a theme you love but are hesitant to commit to just yet.

What is wedding invitation etiquette?
Wedding invitations should include the full names of the couple getting married, those of the hosts (if they’re different), and the place and time of the ceremony-that’s it. These invites, by Epoch Designs, do just that.
Is it OK to hand address wedding invitations?
The address on a wedding invitation should be handwritten; printed labels are not appropriate (though calligraphy done by computer directly on the envelope is gaining popularity and acceptability).
How do you address an envelope to multiple recipients?
On the first address line where one name would normally sit, the line should read the family name in such a manner as “The Family of Mr. and Mrs. John Doe” or “The Doe Family.” This informs the recipients that the mail is intended for everyone belonging to that family, particularly if they are all at that address.
