I wouldn’t include Baby on the STDs, but I think it’s okay for the invitiations, and by then they will have been born or at least pretty close.

Don’t address the unborn babies on the Save the Date.

Just leave it off for tradition. And after the baby is born, you can just talk to them and let them know the baby is also invited. Even though it seems like a cute idea, leaving unborn babies off all of the STDs/invitations is probably the safest bet.

I would leave it off for now and then use the baby’s name on the actual invite or if you really wanted to be clear they are invited now say something like “the smith family”

yes, don’t put the unborn babies on the invitations.  mention to the mothers that their babies are welcome.  i don’t know how close they are giving birth to your wedding, but if it is close, they might not be able to travel with their LOs yet.


you could also address it Smith Family.  but I like the formalily of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Smith for wedding invitations.  your call.
