The bridegroom's uncle passed away after the wedding invitations and envelopes were printed. Should the original envelope with his name printed be mailed, or, should a new envelope listing only his wife be handwritten and mailed ?
-- What a very sad and unfortunate event. I'm sorry for your loss. Yes, it would be more appropriate and kind to re-address the invitation to only his wife. Leaving his name on the envelope would be a painful reminder to her of something he was expected to share with her and is now, sadly, not. How very considerate of you to ask. God bless you all,
