rsvp envelope etiquette question

If both parents (bride and groom) are hosting, do I add both parents names in the RSVP envelope?

    Whoever you want the mail to go to. So just “mr and mrs bride or groom”. That’s who will get the RSVP reply’s.

    The RSVP envelope should just have the return address. It doesn't need everyone's name on it. Just put the name of who ever's home it is.

    Agree with this. Usually it’s the bride and groom’s names on the reply envelope and either the couple’s address or one of their parents’ where they will be collected and counted.

    Exactly. The actual hosts, or even the couple, may not be handling RSVP. So then, address of whoever is counting.

    You'd put the name(s) and address of the person(s) they are mailing the reply cards back to.

    I'm doing the RSVP envelope like this:


    Mr. & Mrs Doe


    City, State, Zip

    All centered on the envelope with our address
