hi guan,

huh? exact traditional method ah? dun think so.. if you address them as 'third uncle', then you can write 'third uncle & family'. else you need to write 'Mr so & so & family' which is very formal for relatives leh...

Hi guan, if i remember correctly, if its husband and wife, you write the husband's name and 'xian kang li' after it. If its the whole family, you write the father's name and 'he fu' after it.

Hope this helps

my mum got her great uncle to write the cards because he seems to know the names and designations of all the relatives in the family :p

Hi Anyone can advise me the addressing on card:

Close Friends: Annie & Steven? Is surname necessary?
Girl Friends & colleagues but don't know hubby name:
Cleo Tan & Hubby? or
Cleo Tan & Partner?

Male friends & Colleagues but don't know wife name:
Mr & Mrs Darrell Tan? or
Darrell & Partner?

Thanks so much!

hi lazybride,

i think its up to your preference..
i aint formal so i just write their names without surname... if you are inviting your frd's partners, please take the effort to find out the name of the partner. its so not nice to just write 'xxx & partner'. anyway, before you write your cards, its better to ask if they are going first...

Hi Minssy, thanks. I'll try find out the names. It is a must to ask first or can just give the card and ask later they bring partner. Thought is rude to ask?

hi lazybride,

no ah.. its not rude to ask.. if you give out the card and ask if they wanna bring their parter, they may have an impression that you are asking bcos you need pple to fill the seat. if you ask first, then at least you have them in your thoughts

also, asking for attendance is to save you cards. alot of BTBs just gave the cards and then they will get a reply saying 'oh sorry, i cant make it on your wedding day'. BUT if you had asked them and if you know they cant make it, you need not give the cards already and will not feel that it was a waste giving the cards to them. this to me, is a smarter and practical way.
