bizarre addressing question...

We just received a gift from one of H's cousins, so H wrote a thank you, and I have no idea how to address the envelope.

H's cousin is divorced (or getting divorced? not positive if it's legal yet) and her married name was "Suzie Jones"; that is still her name on Facebook, so I'm assuming she hasn't changed back to her maiden.  Last we knew she was dating a "Bill Jones" (which is odd b/c it's also her ex's name).  She also signed the card from her son; H honestly doesn't know if the kid was born before or after marriage, but he *thinks* it was the ex-husband's kid so *thinks* he has the same last name.  The card was signed "Suzie, Bill + Sam"

How the heck do I write this envelope?  If I write "Suzie, Bill, and Sam Jones" it makes it seem like they're all the same Jones family, which I don't believe they are (for all I know she's back with her ex though, clearly we're close to these people....).  but listing them all first last feels weird and long.  Then I thought maybe it should be Suzie and Sam Jones and Bill Jones?  No matter how I do it, it just feels weird.

FTR - her wedding invitation was just addressed to "Suzie Jones" and then "Suzie and Bill" was written on the inside.  I'm leaning towards doing that for this too.

  • Address the outside of the thank you like you addressed the wedding invitation and on the inside write To Suzie, Bill, and Son's Name Thank you for the.....

  • I'd just address it to Suzie, then include all of their names inside.  A thank you card envelope doesn't need to be super formal.

    If you wanted to go super formal, since they aren't married, it should be:

    Ms. Susan Jones
    Mr. William Jones
    Mr. Samuel Jones

    Which is a lot of lines.

  • Thanks ladies, I figured that was the easiest option, I just didn't want anyone to be upset.
  • So long as you have the street address correct, you really don't need a last name.

    I suggest addressing the TY without last names at all.  Use HER model of how to do it.  Like this:

    Suzie, Bill, and Sam
    114 Elm Street
