    Addressing formal envelopes

    How do I address an envelope for a formal wedding rehearsal dinner to two Methodist ministers? In other words, both the husband and wife are ministers.
    Thank you

    It would be suitable (in my opinion) to say:
    Mr. and Mrs. So and So
    ~R

    Re: Addressing formal envelopes

    I think, based on how you do it if both are doctors, you list the woman first, and list both titles.
    The Reverend Mary Dillworth Smith
    The Revevend John Smith

    If one (or both) is "The Reverend Doctor" you should include that.

    Often, the companies that produce wedding invitations have helpful stuff on their Web sites for things like this.
