Addressing Wedding Invitations
The Proper use of Titles
To Title or Not to Title? Some people may prefer not to implement titles and just use the first name and family name on the wedding invite, such as Daniel Johnston and Megan Johnston rather than Mr Daniel Johnston and Mrs Megan Johnston.
If you do choose to use titles be consistant and do not shorten names or use abbreviations like Danny Johnston or Dan Johnston - it's best to use their full name and title 'Mr Daniel Johnston' on the invitation and the envelope.
When you're addressing your invitations, it's good wedding etiquette to ensure correct spelling on each and every bit of wedding stationary. We are not just talking about typos. Be extra careful to spell your guests names as they spell them. It may not seem like a big deal until it happens.
When and How to Address Wedding Invitations
Knowing when and how to address wedding invitations is important. Especially if your guests are of a high social ranking. If you have invited a Doctor, Judge or Miliary Officer to your wedding then title them as such and do not title them as 'Mr' or 'Mrs'. In this case it's best to use a title for every one of your other guests (Mr, Mrs, Ms or Miss). It brings the wedding formality up a notch.
If you are inviting children, include their names in the actual wedding invitation. However, it is not necessary to include the childs name on the addressed envelope. If you are not inviting their children be very specific and only include the adults names, such as; Mr Daniel Johnston and Mrs Megan Johnston. It is also proper wedding invitation etiquette to address the married couple as Mr and Mrs Johnston or Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Johnston. Children over the age of 18 years may receive their own wedding invitation if they are inviting a significant other.
Inviting a Guest
In the case of addressing your guest invitations as Mr Daniel Johnston and Guest, it's much better etiquette to find out the name of the other guest. If it has not yet been decided, then make sure their place cards have the guests name on it.
