I would send each line an invitation. I just got done with mine, and I had a few similar situations. While I sort of rolled my eyes as I was putting an 85 cent stamp on each individual invitation, I know if I were on the receiving end, I’d appreciate being treated as my own “on my own” adult instead of as a household. And to me, that’s worth the extra cost when we’re talking about people I care about enough to invite.

I think that etiquette says you should send one to each like you broke them down in your post. (An invitation for couples, and each adult in the household over 18). You can definitely break that rule, though!

Each adult (over 18) not married to another gets his/her own invitation. So that means (assuming the kids are under 18) that you should send 4 invitations to that address:

  1. husband, wife, kids
  2. wife’s brother
  3. roommate
  4. roommate’s gf

This will honestly make managing RSVPs easier too because you won’t have 7 or more people responding on one card.

@mrsSonthebeach:  I think roommate & roommate’s girlfriend can go on one invitation because they are being invited as a single social unit and they live together.

@NAvery:  According to the most formal rules of etiquette, they get their own, but most wouldn’t mind sharing one. Since this is on the etiquette board, though, I gave the most etiquette-conscious answer.
