@MrsFutureG:  The Smith family for your second question… and perhaps Mr. Paul Smith and Misses Sarah and Michelle Jones?

The first should be (I had to look this up too):

Ms. Sarah Jones

Ms. Michelle Jones

Mr. Paul Smith


Ms. Sarah Jones and Ms. Michelle Jones

Mr. Paul Smith

I kick the second name down a row if it’s a little long for the envelope (either way is acceptable).

The second one could be:

The Smith Family (I think this leaves up to interpretation on who is invited unless you have internal envelopes)

OR (I chose this way to be very clear on who is invited)
Mr. and Mrs. Adam Smith

Ms. Nicole Smith

Mr. Jim Smith

Hope this helps!

@MrsFutureG:  I would say Mr. Paul Smith and Ms Michelle Jones and Sarah(if she is the child)

For the large family I would say Mr Jim Smith and family or Mr and Mrs Jim Smith and family.

@MrsFutureG Sorry I just realized that I assumed incorrectly on Sarah, Michelle, and Paul and each role they played in the household.

Mr. Head of Household and Ms. Head of Household

Mr./Ms. Child of Household

For the second people you listed I would say “The Smith Family.” This is what we did when all members of the family were invited. You just have to make sure to get an exact number from them if not all of the members of the family are coming. 

For the first people I would say Ms. Michelle Jones and Ms. Sarah Jones, and then put Mr. Paul Smith directly underneath it. I would put Michelle and Sarah on the same line since they are a couple.

Can I throw a curveball: “and” implies marriage
