I’d say each of those 3 people gets an individual invitation, even if they’re at the same address.

How formal and old-fashioned is your wedding? If it were me, I would address it to Bridesmaid LastName, MamaBM Lastname & Grandpa Jones.


What is the most important thing to you when it comes to inviting your guests? I would rather name people individually, even if it becomes bulky and awkward. Other prefer tradition and formality. What is your preference?

I would send an invite to the Bridesmaid or Best Man and then one to her mom and grandpa.  I think 3 invites would be a lot for one house, though that is the safest way to go.

I think if it were me, I’d probably send 3 different invitations, one to each guest.  If not, at least you can do 2 different ones, one for your Bridesmaid or Best Man and the other for her mom & grandpa.

If you have enough invitations I would send one to your Bridesmaid or Best Man, one to her mom and one to her grandpa. Each person over the age of 18 should have their own invitations even if they live in the same house.

I have something similar.  My FIs cousins and aunt (three people, all adults) all live in the same house.  We are sending a separate invitation to each one. I don’t have any problems with running out of invitations though, or buying extra stamps.
