Which return address should you use on your invitations and reply cards? That’s what bride-to-be, Kyra, wanted to know in our most recent Ask Emmaline question! She writes,

Return Address – Wedding Invitations
Hi Kyra! Great question. According to traditional wedding etiquette, the return address should reflect the person or persons hosting the wedding.
For instance, if the bride’s parents are hosting, the return address would be the bride’s parents address.
If you are hosting the event and you and your fiance live together, have rsvps sent directly to you. If you live separately but are hosting the wedding together, you’ll have to fight over who gets to collect the RSVP cards. ;) I kid. Usually the bride receives them (besides, it’s fun getting mail).
While we’re on the topic of invites and rsvp cards, have you seen these from Chicks and Hens? They’re beautiful!
Hope it helps!
