You can list them on the outer envelope but I wouldn’t do more than 2 lines of names.  You can also have a line on the RSVP with __ of ___ guests attending where you fill in the second line.  That might help with some of the confusion.

Here is what I did:

I will fill in the first bland.  We are having a seated dinner, so I needed to know who was eating what (and specific names for seating cards) so the guests should fill out the bottom part to.

I was in the same boat and what i did was I put the Address & Return Address on the front and then listed the NAmes of the Guests on the back flap of the envelope….

I thought this looked the best in my opinion

I also did some where it simply said The Smith Family (which would be mom dad & kids)

My invites have a belly band of wide ribbon that has a piece of cardstock for guests names.  Could you make something like that to slip around your invites?

I’m doing similar to Michelle and writing the names on a thick belly band. The inner envelope felt a bit forced to me, but I wanted a belly band, so I think it’ll work great!

You could just leave a line in your invitation to list everyone’s names out. I’m still trying to decide how to do mine. I really like Harless’ idea though.

I definitely think that just adding the words “and family” will let your guests know that their children are invited.  If they have a single child, you should probably write the child’s name.  If you happen to be concerned that a specific guest will invite another 15 people not in their own household, then write the family members names in a cute way on the outer envelope…
