I just ordered my invitations yesterday!!
Anyways, my FI’s dad sent me a list of all the names and addresses from his side of the family. I haven’t met most of them, so I am not sure how to address some of them. For many of FI’s cousins, he just gave me their parents address and told me to just include them with their parents. However, they are adults and old enough to bring a guest. So I am not sure to send seperate invitations to the same address or include them all on the same invitation. I was thinking something like this:
Mr and Mrs. Last Name
Ms. Last Name and Guest
If I include all the names on one invitation should I then include two RSVP cards, or just one? There is definitely enough room on the RSVP cards for more than two names.
We definitely have room for everyone who is single to bring a guest, so I am not worried about that, I just want to know how to send the invitations.
Any advice would be great!!

I think how you have it is fine, don’t worry about another set of invitations.

I would have your FI talk to his parents/aunts/uncles/cousins and get the addresses for the cousins that don’t live with their parents. All of the adult cousins living with their parents should get their own invitation.

@MrsMath: I think either way would be fine! I sent a couple of separate invitations to the same address (i.e. my grown adult cousin who lives with her parents/my aunt & uncle), but I think I could have sent them together and it would have been fine.

I just think it’s crazy to send duplicates of the same thing to one address. I’d throw it all on one.

The most polite way to handle it is to send seperate invitations to the same address.
Adults should receive their own invitation regardless of their living situation.
I have personally declined invitations that were sent via my parents. I am not a child who cannot be left alone so must be invited where parents are.

@andielovesj: I agree. If the cousins live with their parents (or even if they don’t, but the parents will hand the invite on to them) they get separate invitations. They are adults, not extensions of their parents. They will make their own arrangements for attending so need their own invitation so they can check the time, location, RSVP date, etc. And if you’re doing separate invitations, you might as well post them separately, for the cost of stamp.
