Q: I am ready to address my wedding invitations. Do I put my cousin’s and her boyfriend’s name on the outer envelope? They do not live together, but I want her to know that he is invited.
A: Since they do not live together, you would put your cousin’s name on the outer envelope and both their names on the inner one. Be sure to find out the guest’s name in advance so that the envelope can be properly addressed and your guests will feel included.
