I would probably send the invite to the bridesmaid, with both of their names on the invitation.

@pineapplelove:  +1 Agreed – it’s perfectly acceptable to send to the bridesmaid with her boyfriend’s name on the invite.  

It’s nice to send an invitation to both addresses if you can, with each addressed to the singular person on the outer envelope, and then addressed to both on the inner envelope, but if that will cause confusion, send it to your bridesmaid as suggested above.

@MrsFutureG:  I would invite each with an invitation to their own address.  You could always include a little note saying;

Jack, we have sent Jane her own invitation, but we can’t wait to see you two dancing together all night long.

Or something like that.

I agree with Pineapplelove and MsMindle.  I’d send the invitation to your bridesmaid with her and her boyfriend’s names on it.  Before my Fiance and I moved in together, this is how we would get invited to weddings (my friends sent the invites to me, his friends sent them to him).  No one sent us separate invitations, and I think it would have been a little weird if they had.
