I have started to put together a guest list. There are a couple familys that I want to invite but i’m not sure how to. One family is my aunt who is single and her 3 children. (the ages of the children are 16, 19, and 25. The 25 yr old no longer lives at home and the other 2 do) I want to make it clear that my aunt can bring a guest. I’m not sure if I should allow the 25 yr old to bring her boyfriend or not and I def don’t want the other two to bring boyfriends. I’m worried that if I allow the 25 yr old to bring her boyfreind than the other two will think they can. How would I even go about wording this invite? Should the 25 yr old be allowed to bring someone? Because the 25 yr old no longer lives at home does she get a seprate invite?? How do i make it clear that the other two can in no one bring someone? Help pllleeeaaaseee

Absolutely send a separate invite to the 25 year old at her own address and add her boyfriend’s name to the invitation rather than writing “and guest”. Technically anyone over 18 should gettheir own invite even if they live at home.. so the 19 year old should too. It might be best to give the 19 year old and the 16 year old each their own invitation only addressed to them. Then send your aunt her own invitation addressed to her “and guest”. They should get the point that the younger ones don’t get a date.

I *think* you would invite the mom + guest and family and then send the oldest child a seperate invite with a + 1. Including a “reserved” number should also help this. Like saying, 4 seats have been reserved for you…and then the other invite 2 seats have been reserved.

I would just send them each a separate invitation. Get response cards printed with “we have reserved ___ seat(s)” in your honor” so you can fill in how many people are invited.
As for inviting one of the daughters with her boyfriend and the other two without… you really need to draw a bright line for plus ones (i.e., “only spouses, fiances, and live-ins”) and apply it uniformly.
