two seperate ones. We had the same thing and extending each to bring a guest, so 2 different invitations.

We’ve got some friends who all live in the same house together. They’ll each receive their own invitation.

I think it depends on how formal your wedding is. I only sent one invitation per household and just put the names of those invited all on one envelope. Nobody complained or said anything about it.

MrsYellowDaffodil:  2 invitations, no doubt. Just because they are not sticklers for etiquette does not mean they would not want their own invitations.  Just because they are roommates, does not mean they operate as a unit. You should not assume they operate as a unit by sending one invitation.

MrsYellowDaffodil:  I say do whatever you think is best then. I pretty much said to heck with etiquette and did it all my way. I figure I know my friends and family well enough to know who would be offended/put off by that sort of thing and who couldn’t care less.

Separate, since they are separate social units. They are not each other’s date.

They are adults who are not in a relationship. They just happen to live at the same address. Two separate invitations.
