Just a quick question…
When you send out invitations, what is the protocol for adult children still living at home?
Do you send out a separate invitation for them or do you include them in the parents invite?
Is there a protocol or a best way to address them?

I am sending separate invites for each adult in a household. For instance, there is one family with both of their adult children at home, so I sent to the parents as a couple and then separate invites to both their son and their daughter.

If they are an adult, they get their own invitation.

@Zusie: is currect. Adult children residing at the home of their parents each should receive his or her own invitation.
The formal manner in which to address invitations is as follows:
Mr. John Edward Doe
12345 Any Street
Anytown, Anystate 12345
Inner Envelope (if you’re using them):
If you are planning to allow John to bring a date, the formal method of inviting his guest would be to ask him for the name and address of the person he would like to bring and then send THAT person her own invitation. However, the informal manner in which to include this would be to write “Mr. Doe and Guest” on the inner envelope.

I will not be sending separate invites. Because I’m lazy. And I don’t think anyone would really care. 🙂
It will just be “The Smith Family” and they get 6 seats (parents, two kids + dates) for example.
