- Guest names should be written out with appropriate titles (for example, Mr., Mrs. Miss, etc.) Ms. can be used for a single female over the age of 18. Miss is appropriate for a single female under 18.
- Spell out all words in the address, like Street, Apartment, etc. Also, you should spell out all house numbers under 20 (for example, Ten Main Street)
- City and state names should be spelled out too (for example, Washington, District of Columbia).
Bottom line – when in doubt, spell it out!
Here is an example to use as a guide:
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Smith
Thirteen Maple Avenue
Annapolis, Maryland 21401
