@jimbert321:  The 20 year old should get her own invite, especially if she is getting a guest.  The boys should be put with their parents.  

Mr and Mrs James And Family is fine, though you might want to include the Mr.’s first name if it’s formal. Our wedding is informal so we are doing The Smith Family.

FH’s brother has two teenage boys and a daughter who is 19, but she has a child of her own with her boyfriend. So I sent the daughter and her boyfriend and daughter an invitation of their own, and included the teenage sons in FH’s brother and wife’s invitation. I simply addressed the envelope to “Mr. and Mrs. B K” and included 5 on the RSVP- him, his wife, the two teenage boys, and the youngest son.

For the aunt, uncle and cousins, I would address them as follows:

Mr. and Mrs. John Smith (first line)

Jake and Joe Smith (second line)

then anothe rinvitation…..

Miss Jane Smith (first line)

Mr. Peter Jones (second line)

For others, I’d go with Mr. and Mrs. Mark Brown and Family  OR The Brown Family

I have some similar situations (however I’m not inviting cousin’s kids – there are 25 of them!) so I did aunt & Uncle & family. or Couin & spouce or Cousin & guest. If they are in a long term relationship I did both their names Ms. first name last name & Mr. first name last name
