When sending a check wedding gift, how is the check made

Customer Question

When sending a check for a wedding gift, how is the check made out to? Do you write Mis brides maiden name and the future groom's name or to the bride with maiden name prior to the wedding?

Since it's a wedding gift and will be appreciated once the wedding is done, the check should be for both of the individuals and addressed: John and ***** *****, that is, as long as you're sure she's taking his name. It's also appropriate to play it safe and use: ***** ***** and ***** ***** Smith One bit of advice though, using the word "or" rather than "and" will make it easier for one of them to cash rather than both of them having to sign
