Mr. and Mrs. John Doe

Peter, Paul and Mary

123 Sunshine Road

Oxford, MS

Oh, huh. Okay, I think I misunderstood. So, the 3 older children are getting guests and the 1 little kid isn’t, right? That’s complex! Well, I read somewhere that kids that are 18+ should get their own invitation so maybe it would be easier to send the 3 older kids their own invite? 

Or, I might just go with ‘Mr. and Mrs. John Doe and Family’ then call to explain.

I don’t think it’s necessary to list everyone on the Save-The-Date Cards, just the formal invitation. I would recommend sending the STD to the “Smith Family” and worry about the specific names/guests/dates later on the formal invitations. you also don’t need to specify guests on the Save-The-Date Cards. Hope this helps!
