I probably broke all etiquette rule with my STC, but in those situations and my cousins off in college, I put John and Jane Smith and family.

I only sent one STD per address. I followed more formal rules for invites. Just make sure all of their names are on it so that the adult children know they should save the date, too. 🙂

I did the same thing Miss Spaniel did:  one STD per household, but individual invites!

I broke all the rules.  I sent 1 STD per household and 1 invite per household except for cases where there were two families in one house. Like my cousin, her hubby and son are currently residing at her father’s house, so I sent one for each family.

BUMP. Can I revive this old post? I’m in the same situation and I’m wondering if the consensus is still the same.

I plan on sending individual invitations to adult children (18+, post-high school) living at home.

But what about save the dates? It seems silly to send 2-4 save the dates to one location. I did the math and it turns out I can send out half the save the dates if I send one per household.

I’m doing one per household:-) and just send invites separately.

This is etiquette I really don’t care about and can’t get behind.  My three cousins all go to school in their hometown and live with their parents, I’m not sending 4 invites to the same house.  When the invites go out the oldest will probably get his own invite because he has a girlfriend that will be invited, but the other two just on the parents invite.

I was 24 years old, living with Fiance (then BF) out of the country and I still got invited on my parents’ invite to two weddings and I couldn’t have cared less.
