i am doing every person individually as we are using those to let the caterer know what food choice they are having.

@ajillity81:  +1 we are going to do ours individually. I plan on just handwriting mine as neatly as possible.

I did every person individually but we didn’t have any babies and very few kiddos. If I was in your shoes I’d probably write “The Doe Family,” or “Mr. and Mrs. John Doe and Family.”

@Little_Nut88:  We only had 2 infants at our wedding, so we just put high chairs at the parents’ tables and only did escort cards for the adults.

I put the whole family onto one card like this: “Mrs. Jane Doe, Mr. John Doe, Miss Wendy, and Master Jack.”

I am planning on writing Mr. John & Mrs. Jane Smith and if they have children I think it will depend on their age..most are over 12 so I think I’ll just give them their own. We have too many people in the family with the same names! Mr. & Mrs. Rob Smith is actually like 3 people for example in our guest list! I can only distinguish who is who by the wife’s name. Or we have say two Mr. & Mrs. John Does and one Mr. John Doe (a single – son of one of the couples). 

I think you probably need at least one first name. The Smith Family, for example might get confusing with a lot of family all with the same last names. I think you could do Mr. & Mrs. John Smith and Family or put Mr. & Mrs. John Smith on a top line and the children’s names underneath if it would fit…

Mr. & Mrs. John Smith
