Guest list

We finally decided on an invitation and placed the order.  And, by the grace of God, we made it in on a February promo even though we ordered in March, so we get our envelopes addressed for us!!!  WOO HOO!!!!

But, to have them do that, we have to send them all the addresses (go figure!) and so I've been filling in the spreadsheet for them:

Formal Name                    Names we Call them       Address                        City                   State       Zip
Mr. & Mrs. John Smith           John & Mary           X  Random Street       Somewhere      California   XXXXX

It's fairly straightforward for simple arrangements, but then there's the more complicated situations...grown children living in the home, grandparents and grandchildren who come to church, but no parents, 2 addresses, one family (for all intents and purposes), 4 "households" at one address....different last names and more!

It's do-able, but I keep thinking, "I sure hope no one gets offended if I do this wrong..."
