Many wedding invitations have double envelopes. This is from when they hand delivered letters and the outer envelope would arrive filthy and torn but it would protect the inner envelope so it was delivered in a pristine condition.
Wedding invitation envelopes need to be hand-written either in handwriting or calligraphy. Labels are not acceptable for wedding invitations.
The information on wedding invitation envelopes needs to be written out in full everywhere possible. This adds formality to the envelope.
Addressing the outer envelope:
Mr. and Mrs. John Doe Smith
One Elm Street
Lumberton, North Carolina 28358
Mr. and Mrs. Smith
