How do you adress an invitation when there is a married couple invited, and then their children, do you write and family?
Example. Joe and Sue Smith, children: Bob Smith and Jen Smith
Mr. and Mrs. Joe Smith and family

From my understanding, it would be Mr & Mrs Joe Smith & Family on the OUTSIDE, listing all of their names on the inside [on the invitation].
Also, this is funny because I know a Mr. Joe Smith! And his wife!

On the outter envelope, you adress it as:
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Smith and Family
On the inner envelope, you write:
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Smith (on the first line).
Robert and Jennifer (then kids in age order, first names only on the second line).

I am not using the inner envelope, just the outter one…eeek now what!

Just put “the Smith family.”

This is very helpful and fairly accurate:
I think writing “The Smith Family” can be confusing…last year, my FMIL received an invitation written that way and we were all confused…us “kids” are all over 18 and living out of the house with our SO’s. Just write the kids’ names on the inside like this link says to do.

@BrooklynWife: This is 100% correct!

I will just be putting “the Smith family” on the address. No inner envelopes.
