Ok so we’re getting ready to send out our invites, which in turn, is providing us with a ton of etiquette questions about addressing them. I think we’ve figured most of them out, but I’m still being stumped by one. How would you address an invite to a single parent and their child (over 18). It’s my aunt and cousin, so I’m not sure if rules are different since they’re family. I’d really appreciate everyone’s advice! Thanks!

I think most people will tell you that since your cousin is over 18, they should receive their own invitation. I know it’s annoying and feels like a waste of money to send multiple invitations to one address, but it’s what proper etiquette dictates. Hope this helps!

My understanding is that anyone over the age of 18 gets their own invitation.

Ok thanks, that makes sense!

Yes, getting their own invitation is the etiquette. But it’s not necessary. I didn’t receive a separate invitation for my cousin’s wedding and I live in a completely different state than my parents. I’m 24!!! My mom just called me and said, you’re on our the invitation, are you going? Haha.
If you need to save money here’s an idea: If you have inner and outer envelopes, address it to the mother, and the inner envelope can have both names. If you just have outer envelopes list the two names separately.
