There are lots of sites out there that help. Here is one from the knot:

In the case of the scenario you mentioned, I would address it “LastName family”. Otherwise, I would find out the father’s name and address it on the outside:

“Mr. and Mrs. ManFirstName LastName”

And on the inside:

“LastName family”

 

For my Save-The-Date Cards, I was much more informal and didn’t include children at all.

Well, I would suggest doing Mr. Firstname & Mrs. Firstname Lastname…

For the scenario that you used…does the dad and other children live with the mother and daughter? If so, I would think that you need to invite the whole family. I would be offended if my mom and sister were invited to a wedding but not my dad or myself and siblings…

@smiley90: no. If you’re not close to the children then I wouldn’t worry about it. I have many of my family friends coming that I invited the parents but not their kids.

@smiley90: That would be a question for you and your Fiance. We had plenty of people who have children but we didn’t invite the children for various reasons. If you want to invite them, I would say “LastName Family” on the inside (wouldn’t list family on the outside) and write in 4 under “We have reserved ___ number of seat(s) for you.” if they had 2 children. That is what we did, so far, we haven’t received any questions. One couple that we invited their daughter, decided they didn’t want to bring their daughter and mailed back the RSVP by crossing out the 3 and writing a 2.
