Couple of questions about how to address envelopes, these are groom's parents' guests...so i don't know them personally...trying to figure this out on my own
Situation 1: older unmarried couple living together, woman is divorced, still has her ex-husband's last name (Smith)...
Should it be Mr. Brian T and Mrs. Jane Smith or Mr. Brian T & Ms. Jane Smith
Situation 2: Do we use "formal" names...like "Michael" instead of Mike? I thought that was the rule. Groom's mom gave me a guest list with nicknames; so I filled in the less obvious ones; but there are some where the spelling could go either way (Nicholas or Nikolaus; Laurence or Lawrence?). If I can't get FMIL to give me the info (I'm going to try), do I wing it or go with the non-formal name.
(As a followup to situation 2; I have a single "Pat"--is it Patrick or Patricia-?!-Just like that SNL skit hahahah. )
Thanks for your help! I'm really excited, my mom is doing the calligraphy for the invitations and she does such a great job
they'll be very pretty!!!
