addressing invitations

I can't believe it's time to get our invitations going!


I read that it's old fashioned to address the invitations as:


Mr. and Mrs. John Doe


But the other option sounds a little awkward:


Mrs. Jane and Mr. John Doe


How did you guys address yours?

Old fashioned smashioned. I went the first route - by the book. If someone wants to sue me for being a sexist fine but I'm using Emily Post as my DA, just kidding

I agree with champagne - we are using the first one too.

I agree too...I went with the old fashioned Mr. and Mrs. John Doe.  Gives it a more formal feel...

YAY- get these babies over with!!!!!  haha


BTW- maybe don't get your FI involved in this- long story short- when I went through all our envelopes- my FI thought it was funny to put their nicknames & funny names, etc to address them to.  I was so over it at that point I could have cared less- but that's besides the point.... haha  Just thought I'd share, b/c we were soooooo far from etiquette on our invites it wasn't funny :)
