How To Address A Wedding Invitation To A Divorced Woman Who Uses Her Married Name
These aspects of traditional wedding etiquette are explained to you by VideoJug, showing you how to properly address a wedding invitation to a divorced woman who uses her married name.
Step 1: You Will Need
- Your wedding guest list with their addresses
- A new name and address list with the proper wording
- A calligrapher or place which does machine calligraphy
Step 2: Determine The Status Of Your Guest
What is the status of your guest? Is she married, single, divorced, widowed? Does she use her married name or her maiden name? It is essential you know the answers to these questions.
Step 3: Determine The Outer Envelope Address
Ok, she is a divorced woman who uses her married name. So on the outer envelope, that's the one the postman will see, you will address it as "Mrs." first name, last name and then the address.
And remember, no matter how nicely addressed and pretty the invitation is, it will not get there if you send it to the wrong address…so always make sure you have the right address!
Step 4: Determine The Inner Envelope Address
Now it's time to address the inner envelope which holds the actual wedding invitation. Here you will address it "Mrs." last name and guest if applicable
Step 5: Take The List To Your Calligrapher To Print
When you have finished with your address list, all you have left to do is give it to your calligrapher to address the envelopes.
