I would just address the envelope to everyone in the household.

@Couellet978: Everyone who will eventually get an invitation gets an STD.  So if there is a house with parents and an adult child, you send two invitations to that house and two Save-The-Date Cards.  It’s wasteful but it’s etiquette.

I didn’t go with etiquitte here– my Save-The-Date Cards were magnets and it made no sense to me that a family with 2 adult kids living at home would need (or even want to have) 3 magnets… I mean, how many fridges do they have?  I feel that, unlike invitations, Save-The-Date Cards are more casual (and not required) so you can make up your own rules a little more… of course, I know the etiquitte police disagree.

I would send one per household, but I’m always trying to minimize how much paper and stamps I use

I think send one to each household, then individual invitations.  It’s wasteful to send a save-the-date to everyone on your list, since they can be shared.  The etiquette is different for invitations.

I would send one per household.  the invitations are sent to individuals so that you get the RSVP so you can make he seating chart.
