    Hi girls!

    I have NO idea what the etiquette is for this- we have a few friends who are in serious relationships with people but do not live together? How do we handle this? Do we pick one of their homes and address it to both or do we send two separate ones with both their names on it (pricey and seems counterproductive to me). Let me know what you think!

      I had this same issue for only a few couples. Here's my logic and what I did:
      To save money I sent it to one household and addressed it to both their names. Typically, I sent it to the female in the relationship as I felt se would RSVP and put it on her fridge to remember where as the men would just put it in a junk pile and totally forget to tell his partner. LOL. It does make sense though if you think about it.

      I'd send it to one household (the most responsible one) and address it to the two people. Good luck!

        If one of the people in the couple is closer to you ( like your friend and her boyfriend), you can send it to that person, but with both names on it. I'm sure they will all understand and not expect 2 invitations per couple.

              i did just as the ladies have said...addressed it to the person we were close to with their partner's name underneath...

              Mrs. Emily Smith
              Mr. Bob Williams
              1234 Street...etc

                My wedding planner told me that if the couple lives in different homes, you send it to the one you are friends with. If thats the guy than so be it. She also suggested that if the couple has been together for a long time address them both by first and last name. so Mr xxx & Ms.xxxx
                If it's a newer relationship (just a few months) use Mr. xxx & Guest, or Ms. xxx & guest. So according to her it's who you know best that gets the invite in the mail box!!

                  I agree with Anna22. As a person who has been on the receiving end of many such invitations, the wedding invitation would be sent to me and my fiance (both names on invitation), but sent to my home address, not his.
