Today we're sharing wedding invitation ettiquette tips from the wise and talented Amy Morelli of 2U Collection, a luxury invitation designer based in Orlando, FL. This super helpful post will assist every bride in wording her invitations, addressing them properly, and calling everyone by the right name!
Over the years I have had many brides ask me specific questions about Wedding Stationary Etiquette. So today is all about etiquette, keep in mind some of the information below is how I do things here at The 2u Collection and Paper Couture Stationery. Some of these "rules" have been modified to what I've found works best over the years, so in researching etiquette you may find different rules. What I've found over the years is that it is mostly personal preference how you handle some of these things. And I could write on etiquette for pages and pages, so with that in mind I tried to create a brief overview of the main items and the questions I get asked the most.
Mr. - Formal Male Title
Ms. - Formal Female Title, for divorcée or over 40 single woman
Mrs. - Formal Title for Married Females
Miss - Formal Title for Unmarried Females under 40 years old
Standard - Mr. And Mrs. John Smith
One has a Professional Title - Doctor Jane Smith and Mr. John Smith
Miss Jane Smith
Unmarried Female - Miss Jane Smith or Ms. Jane Smith
Under 16 - Only list parents name on the outer envelope and list the children's name on the inner envelope. For example: Jason and Brittany.
Typically, we usually only use an outer mailing envelope, but if you are having a very formal or traditional event, then you will want to have both an inner and outer envelope, it gives an heir of sophistication and implies formality.
Tomorrow's post is all about wedding websites. See you then!
