I can’t seem to find this one anywhere – my flower girl is 6 and her mother is one of my bridesmaid. Do I send her a separate invitation?
Also, my nephew is only three, his mother (married) is one of my bridesmaids. What’s the proper way to address the envelope?

I don’t know for sure. But I would think you would address her invitation, as one invitation to the whole family. I guess the same way you would address an invitation to any child you were inviting.

Thanks! I had a template but I completely lost it!

I second Tanya.
Just address it to Mr and Mrs Bridesmaid and Family (if the BM is married) or to Ms. Bridesmaid and Flower Girl Firstname Lastname if not.

Just a thought: I am sending our flowergirl an invitation addressed to her specifically (along with one addressed to the rest of her family). She is 7 years old and I know she would absolutely love to receive her own, so I think it is worth it. However, I don’t think a 3 year-old boy will care, so it might not be worth it to send him his own!
That said, I think it is correct to simply send one to your flowergirl’s family, addressed to the parents on the outer envelope, and the parents + kids names (in order of age) on the inner envelope.

For the flower girl, I’d just include her name on the invitation. Perhaps you could even create a special insert for her (an easy DIY) in bright colors, inviting her to come early to the bridal suite to put on her pretty dress and practice throwing flower petals. Something to make her feel special.
For the nephew, I’d just put his name on the invite/inner envelope so that his family has no doubt that he’s welcome.
Hope that helps!

Anyone under the age of 18 does not need to get their own invitation. You address the envelope by putting the adults’ names on the first line and the kids’ names on the second line. If you are inviting many children from the same family, you can just write "and family" on the second line.
Of course if you want to send a separate invitation to the kids because you think they would get a kick out of it, go for it!

As a child, I really dont think they will hold a grudge if they dont get there own invitation. Yet, to make them feel "needed" I would address theirs separately since they do indeed play an important role to your special day. Unfortunately, I am not sure if they will treasure/scrapbook the invitation like their mothers would.
