I wouldn’t, unless you’re having a really formal wedding. It seems excessive.

I would say not. I would give them each thier own line though and go in age order (oldest on top)

So

Miss so and so

Miss so and so

Mr so and so

I have cousins who live out of house (in college) and they will be listed on the one sent to their parents

I believe it’s traditional that anyone over 18 living in the same household gets a seperate invitation but highly doubt that if they recieved one invite with each of their names listed they’d be whining “Where’s my seperate invitation” *stomps feet*

@LaTortuga:  Lol, nice city name.

I wouldn’t send 3 either, that seems silly.

outer address goes to head of house and the inner envelope is addressed to each person invited

My adult aunt lives with my grandmother and they got one invite.

My Fiance has an uncle and aunt that live with his grandmother and we sent his grandmother a separate invite (who knows why). The invite for the aunt and uncle arrived three days before the invite for the grandmother even though they were mailed at the same time. So for three days my FI’s grandmother thought she wasn’t invited to the wedding.

I would also just send one. In addition to a waste of paper, time, and money, I’d be worried one would get misplaced and then someone would be upset

We have a similar problem. For us, all adults living under the same roof get one invite except in two cases- 1. his grandparents have their daughter and grandson there and we didn’t think they should have to share, so they get their own. 2. My adult cousin who lives with her parents due to illness gets her own.

Everyone else gets to share.

This post came in the nick of time for me. We have a lot of adult friends living with their parents, with the whole family being invited. I’m about to send save the dates out and I think we’re just going to send one per household, even though that means we have a lot of extra save the dates. We might send seperate ones for invitations, but I have awhile before making that decision.

@asscherlover:  With save the dates, are they pictures? If they are pictures i would send each person in the house one. I know that if it were me, I would want my own picture of the couple.

I sent just 1 per house as long as they are related or a couple.  All the names were still on the invites. I have friends who are identical twins who live together in an apartment, I sent them their invite together.  However, I have some other friends who are roommates but not dating/related so I sent separate invites to each person.

We sent one to each adult. If I was inviting a 19 year old who was away at college, I’d probably make an exception. But it was important to me to treat each adult invited as an independent person, even if they still lived with family members.

@mojoh:  I’m thinking about throwing 3 Save-The-Date Cards in one envelope. They do have a big picture and theoretically most of these people (recent college and grad school grads) will be moving out soon (since they are only living there until they get a job).

ETA: What stumps me the most are the families with some adult children and some nonadult children. Am I supposed to send an invite to the parents addressed Mr. Smith and Family AND two more invites to the adult children? It just seems redundant.
