You could address the outer envelope to the family (ie The Smith Family, The Jones Family, etc).

On your RSVP card you can put how many seats are reserved so they know children are included. We did that and addressed it to the family.

We just wrote the names of who was invited on the outter envelope (didn’t have an inner envelope). On our RSVP postcard we did the old “we have reserved __ seats in your honour”. We’ve only had one person try to add a guest and I got that straightened out quickly 😉

We also wrote the names of everyone invited on the outer envelope since we didn’t have an inner one.

We’re doing the same as mentioend above: ____ seats reserved in your honor, Everyones names or The Smith Family if they have more than 4 people.

For my younger cousins (3 sisters 8-16) I’m sending them their own invite. I think they’ll get a kick out of being personally invited, but otherwise I’d have done the ___ family again.

I would write all the names of the invited on the flat back of the pocket fold, just as though it were the inner envelope.  You could write all the names in a silver pen, that way it looks a little nicer then plain black ink on the back of the pocketfolds.  If you haven’t already printed out the RSVP cards then you could do what OP had posted as well.

We wrote who was invited on the outer enveloppe and only one person did not get it.  Still figuring that one out!

We didn’t have inner envelopes or pocketfolds, and just addressed the outer envelope to “The [last name] Family.”
