If you’re inviting the entire family (parents and kids), I would say “The Smith Family.”

I plan on going Mr. John Smith and Family. I don’t want to get confused when I’m “writing” out the invites/envelopes whom I’ve already covered.

Agreed, it could either be “The Smith Family” or “John Smith and Family” and I think “We have reserved X seats in your honor” is a terrific idea! You’ll have to let us know if that really does ward off unwanted guests.   Wink

I also really like “we have reserved “x” seats in your honor” and filling out the number.

Are you addressing the outer or inner envelope?

If you have both, on the outer I’d put:  The Smith Family

And on the inner, write out each name: John, Jane, Sue, Sally… etc.

I wrote out both parents names –

John and Jane Doe & family

when there was only 1 kid (or if the kid was an adult), I addressed it to all 3 –

John, Jane, and Mike Doe
