According to the Knot.com,


"The return address usually goes on the back flap of the envelope. Also, the return address used should be that of the person(s) whom you've designated to receive response cards -- be it your parents or you (traditionally, whoever is hosting the wedding handles response cards). Don't forget that the RSVP envelope should also be printed with this address (and should include postage)."

I just addressed them like a normal envelope in the mail, but I think what moore807 has found is a good suggestion!

The US Postal Service PREFERS us to put the return in the upper left corner and the middle is reserved for the person to whom you are addressing doing otherwise can delay delivery and would require Hand Cancellation.

I had the same question when I sent out our invites and I believe I found on Martha Stewart that your return address could go on the back, and the guest name was on the front.  I did this and had no problems with any returned mail.
