Q What is the correct format for the invitation text?

If the ceremony is taking place in a religious institution, the wording should be: request the honour of your presence Generally, the British spelling of “honour” is used, although it is not a requirement; “honor” may also be used. If the ceremony is taking place in a secular setting, the wording should be: request the pleasure of your company No abbreviations should be used! Spell out the date, the year, the time. Zip codes are not usually used on the invitation. If the reception is in the same place as the wedding, “Reception to follow” can be listed at the bottom of the invitation – either centered, or left or right justified. The most formal way is on the right. If the invitation is “Black tie”, that should be listed in the right hand corner of the invitation or the reception card. “Black tie” or “Black tie preferred” or “Black tie optional”.

Q How should the envelope for married couples with different last names be addressed?

Each name should be listed on a separate line. Usually the woman is listed first, but some brides prefer to list the name of the one they know best on the top line. The second line should have “and” at the beginning. The wife’s title is usually “Ms.” Ms. Mary Roberts and Mr. John Smith

Q How should the envelope for couples who live together, but are not married, be addressed?

The couple will receive one invitation, with each name on a separate line – but without “and”. Usually the woman is listed first, but some brides prefer to list the name of the one they know best on the top line. Ms. Barbara Brown Mr. Robert Jones

Q How should single women be addressed on an envelope?

Single women may be addressed as “Ms.”, “Miss”, or “Mrs. (widowed or divorced)”, as appropriate. Many adult women prefer to be listed as “Ms.”, rather than “Miss”. Girls under the age of 13 should be addressed as “Miss” or just by their first name. The word “Miss” does not need a period following it.
