Can you say it just the once

Bonjour,

With regards to Cher Matt, chère Kate. If you are are writing a letter or a card and it's to both of them, could you default to the masculine version and say Cher Matt et Kate?

Merci

Hi Martin, 

You could use the masculine plural 'chers' -

Chers Matt et Kate 

as in 

Chers amis = Dear friends

Chers parents = Dear parents

Bonne Continuation !
