If an “adult child” was still living in the same home then I just sent 1 invitation.. if they lived outside the home I sent one to both.

I believe the actual etiquette is to send a personal invitation to every guest over the age of 18, whether they live in the same home or not.

technically they should get separate invites if they’re over 18, but i would just send 1 for the family if they all live at the same address.

if you’re giving them +1s, you might want to send it separately or tell them, because it can get confusing with that many people on 1 invite.

I’m debating this, But I’m planning to send one per family to cut down on paper. Some of my guests are 19 and I think they can still share an invite with their parents. the 19-21s who live at home with parents that I am inviting really dont care about the physical invitation and are just happy to be acknowleged. I am listing all their names in full on the invite though.

@runsyellowlites: i agree here – if they have their own home i would send them one individually – so i would say one per household.

We sent them to the family IF the adult child was either a) living at home or b) in college and we weren’t sure of a definite address.

I think that if the child is living away from home, they should get their own invite.

I plan on sending children over 18 that don’t live with their parents a separate invite. If they live with the parents, then one invite for everyone.
