    • Mr. Thomas Jefferson
    • Ms. Florence Nightingale

  • Use professional titles, if applicable.
    • The Honorable and Mrs. Benjamin Franklin

  • If inviting a married couple with different last names, you can put both names on one line or on two lines (depending on how much room is available).
    • Mr. David Arquette and Mrs. Courtney Cox
    • Mr. Humphrey Bogart
      Mrs. Lauren Bacall

  • If inviting an unmarried couple living together, put names in alphabetical order by last name (the man's name does not automatically go first).
    • Ms. Jennifer Aniston
      Mr. Bradley Pitt

  • Spell out all names; do not use initials.

  • Do not use symbols; spell out the word "and".
