Our wedding invites and most others I have seen in my area do not have the names of guests written on them, they only have the guest names on the outer envelope. All of our invites on the inside of the envelope were the exact same. People will know who it’s for I promise!

butternutter :  Most invites I’ve seen dont have specific guests names so I think you’re fine. I’d recommend mentioning the no kid policy on the invite but if you think you can contact them all personally then I guess that’s your preference.

I personally like invitations being named, and the wedding invites I’ve received so far (only a few, granted, as I’m just reaching the stage in life when my friends are getting married) have had names on them. The names have been handwritten on a printed invitation, which is what we will be doing. We’re doing that for our engagement party invitations too.

I’ve never seen wedding invitations with people’s names on them.  That’s all information for the envelopes.  You’ll be fine.  The only invitations I’ve ever seen where you put people’s names are those fill in the blank ones for little kid birthday parties that you can buy super cheap in packs of 10 or 20.

I’m in the UK and have never seen a wedding invitation without names on. Personally I often throw envelopes away so there’s a good chance I’d do that before realising I should have paid attention to the names. I’d find including names better, but obviously it seems to work in the US.
