Are the two cousins over 18? If yes, the house hold gets three invites. One for the aunt and uncle and one each for the two cousins.

We sent a separate invite for kids over 18 that were still at home.

@Bri1o:  I have a similar situation and I am sending separate invitations. I believe everyone over 18 is supposed to get their own invite regardless of where they’re living.

The proper way is that every adult gets their own invitation, but I don’t think it is a huge deal. I’ve been invited on my parents invite (even when I didn’t live at home) and I didn’t care at all.

However, I have one cousin that lives at home who has an SO that will be invited, so I will send him his own invitation for him + GF.  Single cousins living at home with families I am just sending one.

We sent separate invitations to any adults… even the ones living at home. I’m not sure what the rules are persay… we just decided that was how we were going to do it. We extended +1s to all of the adults… then the 14-17 crowd, we asked the parents if their teens would like a plus one. In a few cases they had long term GF/BF’s and we extended a +1, but most of them did not.

my cousins are each getting their own if they’re over 18.

Yup, one for the parents and one each for the adult children.

We have some adult children living at home on our guest list. I sent one STD to the family (it’s not like they need 3 STDs on the fridge, lol) but we will be sending separate invitations to each of my cousins.
