If a guest still lives at home with his/her parents as is the case with many of my recent-grad cousins is it appropriate to send one invitation listing each persons name to the family? Or do I need to send one invite to the adults of the home and a separate invite to each child bc they are over 18 even though they live at the same address?
frankly I’m just trying to save on invites as I only ordered a certain amount and we’re cutting it close.

According to proper ettiquette, each person over 18 should get their own invitation. However, if your wedding isn’t too formal and you aren’t particularly close to the college age cousins, I think it’s okay to combine invitations to one per family/household.

I think it’s fine to send one to the whole household 🙂 Depends on the formality of your wedding of course.

Eh… I think there is NO reason to waste a stamp and paper for an invite going on the same fridge. I know etiquette says different but frankly, sometimes those “rules” are not practical.

I’ve been included on invites to my parents up until I was about 23 and finally moved out for good! Even then, I’m still on invites as an “If LadyElva wants to come too, then she can”
No one is going to be offended by being put on the same invite as their parents, but they might think it’s strange if several letters all arrive at the same house with the same message, but to different people.

@queencharlotte04: I have never received a seperate invitation for a wedding whilst living at home with my parents if they were invited as well. I also didn’t send out to 18+ year old who’se parents were always invited if they still lived at home when I got married.

Save yourself some money, and just send one. The average person is not “in the know” of true wedding etiquette, and won’t know the difference.
