Send one to each of them! Especially if you have been friends with them independently for a long time. 

It’ll be good so they can keep it on their fridge/in their sights as a reminder! I say this because I’m usually bad at remembering exact dates so that would help me haha

Each adult that is not engaged or married to another adult should get his/her own invitation, so actually you should send both people in a couple not living together their own invitation (and STD). Many don’t bother, but this is the most etiquette-conscious choice.

Formal traditional etiquette actually requires that, while both members of a social unit must be invited, the invitations must be sent to each guest in his or her own name, at his or her own address — exactly as you are proposing.

While you are quite right that brides often send a single invitation to couples who live separately, those brides are usually compromising their manners to save themselves the cost or the effort of one extra invitation. Yours is the more gracious choice.

I’d stick two in one envelope!
