Open Question: Return Address

Whose name do you use on a return address of an invitation if you and your fiance live together and are hosting the wedding, but obviously have different last names at this time. I’d like to purchase an embosser with our married name and address, but is it “jumping the gun” to use my future last name as a return address when my last name isn’t really his yet? Should I just save the embosser for after the fact and print our different names on the invite?

    I purchased an embosser, like you, and intended to use it on my invitation envelopes. I used only our first names, “bride’s name” & “groom’s name”, then the address. However, be warned that embossers will not work if the paper is too thick. I found this out the hard way after ordering the embosser. What happens if the paper is too thick- is that it doesn’t emboss the whole stamp. Our names, for example were cut off when I tried to emboss my envelope. My invitation envelopes, however are a bit thicker than average. Just a word to the wise…

    According to the very proper elder lady who does invites at Michael C Fina — the embosser should use the address only (without a name). THIS SOLVES EVERYTHING AND IS 100% PROPER! Yea, how often does that happen?

    you probably shouldn’t use your new lastname already.

    I purchased an embosser with our future address only. No names. 🙂

    My response cards had my name on them. My invites had our address, handwritten, no names. Worked fine.

    For our thank you return address do I put both of our names even though I will be the one writing and sending them out?

    This may not be the best place to ask this, but I want to know if I can have a short sale and I don’t know how to find a professional listing realtor… do you know anything about this realtor? They’re based out of Fair Oaks, CA 15 minutes from my son’s school and I can’t find reviews on them – Becky Lund & Associates, 8814 Madison Ave Fair Oaks, CA 95628 (916) 531-7124.
