- Wedding: September 2009
Alright, I seem to be finding mixed answers on google regarding this issue.
I’m inviting entire families to our wedding. (Meaning the parents and their kids).
Does the outer envelope just say the parents names? As in "Mr. and Mrs. John Doe".
And then the inner envelope says "Mr. John Doe, Mrs. Jane Doe, First name of kid #1, first name of kid #2".
Or do I just write "The Doe Family" on the outer envelope and leave it at that?
Or do I write the parent’s names on the outer envelope line #1 as in "Mr. and Mrs. John Doe", and then on line #2 write "Ms. Kid #1 Doe" and "Mr. Kid #2 Doe". Do you use "Ms. and Mr." for children?
Also, what do you do if you are inviting the parents and their kid who is over 18 and lives at home with them still? Do you really have to send out two invitations? One to the adult child and one to the parents? Seems excessive to me! Especially since both are going to the same address!
Help me please! I don’t know what to do! It seems so trivial, but I’m making a bigger deal out of it than it needs to be!
