@missashley884:  I had a similar situation.  One married couple, one mother-in-law, and one adult child – all in the same household – all different last names.

I actually sent 3 invites because I wanted 3 RSVP’s back and I also wanted to be clear about how many guests each of the single invites (the Mother-In-Law and child) were given.  Plus, I thought it was the proper thing to do.

If you plan on just sending one invite:  I would list them all on separate lines – so, the first 3 lines would be names, the 4th would be the street addres, the 5th would be the city/state.

Same format goes for STD’s – either 3 individual ones – or 1 group one.

Anybody over the age of 18 receives his or her own invite, says proper etiquette.

From the situation you described, they are three individual adults who happen to live at the same address?

In that case the proper thing to do is send each woman her own invitation.  Not only will that make your address woes disappear, but RSVP-ing will be simpler too, no?

Write all the names out on the invite or send 3 seperate ones is what I would do.

I would not send 3 invites to one house that is wasteful and costly just use all three names.  They are probably use to this!

@ladyartichoke:  In your situation I’d do like this:

Mr. John Smith

Miss Jane Jones

Jack, Julie, Juniper, Jasper and John Jr. (assuming all are minor children)

If not, as above, but all non-minor children receive their own invites.
