My fiance has family that he wants to invite where the two parents and their 28 yr old daughter live in the same household….do we send her a completely seperate invitation? or do we list all three on one?

Proper etiquette is to send one to the parents and one to the 28 year old; however, you could list her on a separate line of the invitation to the parents.

I know you’re supposed to send adults seperate invites…. but to save money on invites I just gave them one and put the names on different lines.

If its in your budget to send a seperate invite then I would send two invites: one to the parents, one to the 28 yr old. If its not in your budget then I think what @noritake22: suggested putting the name on a seperate line perfect!

As an adult who lives at home (saving for a house while we’re engaged) PLEASE, PLEASE find it in your budget to send the 28 year old a separate invitation! There’s nothing worse than feeling like you’re four because people include you wiht your parents.

I would send a separate invite. A 28 year old isn’t a child, and it shouldn’t cost too much extra to send them their own invite.

I would definitely send a separate invitation. imho anyone over the age of 18 should get their own invite.

Send the 28 yr old her own invite. I can see keeping someone 18, 19, maybe 20 on the same invite…but not a 28yo!

I sent two invites, too. It’s proper etiquette and it really doesn’t cost that much more to do so.

Seperate invite please. My family is notorious for sending invites to my mom, which extend to me and Fiance. I haven’t lived at home in 10 years!!! I can understand saving postage, and I do talk to my mom a few times a week. But this is still incredibily irksome. I may end up making an inadvertant point with my invites. All of my counsins 18+ will get their own invite. Even is they still live at home. In my opinion, if you are legal to vote, you earn the right to a seperate wedding invitation.
Sorry about that. I’ll climb down from the soapbox now .

@Scottielass: Oh yes, I’ve been there! I’ve been the third on invites to my parents for ages, even though I OWN MY OWN HOME, have a significant other whom I live with, and have not lived at home since I was 20. I am 27. COME ON FAMILY! I definitely agree with PP, send a separate invite!
