    addressing a letter

    How do you address a more formal letter to a husband and wife?

    Is it Mr Bill Smith and Mrs Mary Smith

    Mr and Mrs Bill Smith

    Mr Bill and Mrs Mary Smith

    or another option

    You can address it either as Mr. and Mrs. Bill Smith or Mary and Bill Smith (ladies first, and no honorifics necessary).

    It would be appropriate to write Mr. and Mrs. Smith in a formal letter.
