How does the post office read an address?
Automated mail processing machines read addresses on mailpieces from the bottom up and will first look for a city, state, and ZIP Code.
Then the machines look for a delivery address.
If the machines can’t find either line, then your mailpiece could be delayed or misrouted..
Should the wife name come first?
Outside of the traditional, formal “Mr. & Mrs. John Doe”, the wife’s name is ALWAYS first when using first names: “Jane and John Doe” (1). In social importance, the woman is always first, then males, then children.
Should the bride’s name come first?

Do you handwrite addresses on Save the dates?
Getting Started The mailing envelope on save-the-dates is typically addressed by hand, but you may also use a calligraphy-style font from your computer, if you choose this option, print directly on an envelope, not on an address label. Printing is especially helpful if you have a large number of envelopes to address.
Do you put first and last names on Save the dates?
Single guests can be addressed simply with their first and last names, or with a singular title, if preferred. If you’re extending an invitation for a plus one, add “and Guest” after their full name.
What goes on a Save the Date?
The save-the-date should definitely include your and your partner’s names, wedding date (or dates, for a wedding weekend), location (a town or city is helpful, even if the venue isn’t booked yet) and a notice for a formal invitation to follow.
When writing a couple’s name who comes first?
Both husband and wife use their first names, with the wife’s name listed first and the husband’s second. It helps to remember the old Southern rule of always keeping the man’s first and last name together.
Should you put full names on Save the dates?
Although save the dates aren’t formal invitations, it’s still customary to use full names. You don’t need to include initials or middle names, but many couples avoid nicknames or shortened versions of names.
How do you properly address a save the date?
Address the save the date with both of the couple’s names. Traditionally, the man’s name goes first, but if you’re close to the woman and her boyfriend is coming as her guest, switch up the order and put her name first.
