Firstly, I’m wondering…should I bother with sending invites to the groomsmen? I definetly will to the bridesmaids because girls like to keep things like that, but do most people send them to the guys?
Also, what do I do when I want to invite a household with different last names? For example I have a lady named Anne Smith and her husband Blake, but her kids names are Connor K. and Olivia D (I know, I know..she’s been married three times lol)….what do I do in a case like that? Just say Anne Smith and family?

Yes, you send invites to the groomsmen! Everyone who is invited gets an invite. Hehe. And re: Anne Smith, is the husband Blake Smith? I would address Mr. & Mrs. Blake Smith & Family.

Sierrap93: Yes, send the groomsmen invites! Are you doing inner envelopes? If so, the outer envelope would say “Mr. and Mrs. Blake Smith” and the inner envelope would say
Mr & Mrs. Smith

Sierrap93: I would send invites to groomsmen. I am, with the exception of FIs brother because he told me he doesn’t want paper anything, everything needs to be via e-mail… meh.
Also, I would put ‘and family’. It’ll be clear, if not give her a quick call to confirm the and family means everyone… which I’m sure she’ll get anyways.

I’d still send invitations to the groomsmen. Everyone deserves a formal invitation, even if it’s a given that they’re attending. 🙂
Re: addressing the invite, I agree with kimmo416:!
