Mrs. John Smith
or you can use a more informal:
Mrs. Jane Smith
or the least formal way to address is:
The bride, her bridesmaids, her mother,the groom's mother and the hostesses should all attend the bridesmaids luncheon. The groom's mother may decline if she lives very far away. You may also want to invite a close friend or family member of the groom's mother if she lives out of town so she has someone to drive to the party and stay with.
Depending on the complexity of the invitation, if there is assembly involved and they printing method you choose, some invitations can take 1 week to print and some can take several weeks to print (mainly during the busiest seasons - wedding and holiday).
Be sure to plan your party and order your invitations at least 8-12 weeks in advance. Then you will receive in plenty of time to address, add postage and mail.
Most formal parties need to be mailed 2-4 weeks in advance so people can reserve the date for your party. More informal parties can be mailed 2-3 weeks in advance.
If you have many out of town guests attending you may want to mail the invitations as early as 6 weeks in advance so everyone is sure to reserve the date for your party so that they can attend.
