    I don't know, but you're putting too much thought into this

    @JennyW1, exactly what I was just going to say! The friend could just be the type to provide as much information as possible.

    Either way, I wouldn’t worry about it–it’s completely fine to just invite the parents.

    She thinks her kids being invited. You should let her know or remind her that children are not invited.

    She may not realize no kids are invited. Just be clear on the invites!

    I know a lot of parents who write their addresses that way – hell, I even have a couple who leave their non-phone age children’s names on the answering machine message. I don’t think you can guess whether or not she assumes anything.  Just respond politely and stick to your guns.

    If you haven’t sent invites out yet, she doesn’t know that you’re not having kids. She probably just included the daughter’s name in case you wanted to invite her.
