I would send one and address each person’s name especially if they all live in the same house. Invitations especially wedding ones can get costly, so my rule of thumb is one per home 👍🏽

She doesn’t need a seperate invite, but I would list her on the envelope.

kalhana :  if it’s not an adult, it doesn’t need a separate invite. A 17 year old goes on the adult invite

kalhana :  

Well, I wouldn’t ever put  Mr and  Mrs Hisfirstname Hislastname  because I find it an intolerably  outmoded patriarchal  form and obliterates  the womans independant identity . But I feel strongly about that  and not everybody does, so….. 

I’d put Ms Jane Doe and Mr  John Doe and Ms Sue Smith
