Addressing the inner envelope:
If you are using folding invitations place all blank, vellum inserts into the invitations. Place an invitation inside an addressed inner envelope with the invitation front facing the back of the inner envelope. Complete all invitations.
Place enclosure cards inside the inner
Addressing the outer envelope:
Use the formal form of names spelling out special designations such as "Doctor". Abbreviations for informal designations such as "Jr., Esq., etc." are fine.
For the address avoid abbreviations i.e.; "Rd." should be "Road." Avoid "& family", use
instead the names of family members below parents names. Avoid using the "&" sign, spelling out the word instead. Spell out states names.
See example below:
Place the inner pre-addressed envelope inside the outer envelope with the name facing the back of the outer envelope.
Use of Miss, Ms. & Mrs.:
Any female under the age of 18 that is unmarried we recommend the use of "Miss". Any female over the age of 18 that is unmarried we recommend addressing the invitation using the term "Ms."
There is no clear rule when a female moves from "Miss"
to "Ms." if unmarried, so use your own judgment here.
