10 Tips for Envelope Addressing
1. Use your guests' proper names - Robert instead of Bob, Edward instead of Ed
2. Use your guests' proper titles (Mrs., Dr., Ms. Woman over 18 years), Master (younger than 9 years), Miss (Under 18 years), woman doctor married and husband not a doctor know woman's first name Mr. Steven Brown and Dr. Susan Brown, Widows use Mrs.
3. Guests related or friend of bride and groom should be listed before their guest regardless of sex (cousin) Ms. Cindy Lee and (boy friend) Mr. James Brown
4. All abbreviations should be spelled out - instead of St. use Street, Blvd. use Boulevard, Rd. use Road, Apt. use Apartment, NY use New York
5. If wife retains her maiden name her title is Ms. example: Mr. John Brown and Ms. Susan Smith-Brown
6. Spelling out 2 digit street numbers up to 99 looks special on envelope example: 35 spelled out Thirty-five
7. Hand cancel stamp on envelopes before mailing (avoids track marks on envelope)
8. Weigh envelope at post office with all inserts in envelope before buying stamps (size of envelope makes a difference on postage)
9. "and Guest" & "and Family" are written on inner envelope Mr. Jones and Guest - Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Family (no inner envelope, and Guest & and Family goes on outer envelope)
10. Don't forget the return address on flap of envelope.
