How to Address Gay Wedding Invitations

It's confusing to figure out how to address invitations to LGBT couples.  Here's the rundown on how envelopes are addressed:

Outer envelope:  If they are an unmarried couple, the names should be on two separate lines, alphabetized, ie:
Ms. Jennifer Coveney
Ms. Bernadette Smith
14 Willow Street
Boston, MA 
02110

Inner envelope:  Ms. Coveney and Ms. Smith

Outer envelope:  If they are married with different last names, the names should be on the same line, alphabetized, ie:
Ms. Jennifer Coveney and Ms. Bernadette Smith
14 Willow Street
Boston, MA 
02110

Inner envelope:  Ms. Coveney and Ms. Smith

Outer envelope:  If they are married with the same last name, the names should be on the same line, alphabetized, ie:
Mrs. and Mrs. Bernadette and Jennifer Coveney-Smith
14 Willow Street
Boston, MA 
02110

Inner envelope:  Mrs. and Mrs. Coveney-Smith

PS - that's not our real address!
