I am inviting a married couple with four <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>adult children who live with them. Can I just address an envelope to “The Smith Family” or do I really need to send each child a seperate invite. I have no inner envelopes.
I am running low on invitations, and I know for a fact the children could not care less about having their own invitation- it will most likely go in the garbage.

I don’t know what proper etiquette would say on this BUT I would just send one for the whole family. They do all live there after all.

Proper etiquette states that children over 16 (maybe 18) should get their own invite.
I’m not doing that…if you’re a family in the same house, you’re all getting one invite! But I will address it as:
John and Jane Doe
Hope that helps!

“Children” who are 18 or older and live with their parents should get their own invitation. HOWEVER, I’ve read somewhere that one invitation can be sent to all four of the adult children (although why that is okay I’m not really clear on).
But I’d think of it this way: are they people who would be offended by receiving only one invitation for six people? Send separate invitations. Do you need to know each individuals’ meal preference? Send separate invitations. Are you inviting anyone with a date? Send separate invitations. If none of these things are a concern and you’re running short on invitations? Send one invitation. 🙂

In my eyes, as long as they are still living at home (as in not even away at college) then their names will be put on their families’ invite.
