Adults (18 and older) should get their own STD (and invitation) whether they live at home or not. You can skip the dates for those unmarried for now and incldue them on the invitations. Or, you can send one to each couple if the cohabit.

The “correct” answer is one to every couple of adults. But in reality,  does one house need three stds?  So I would base it off how “correct” your family is,  I know in mine they would have laughed and asked why I wasted two stamps. Other people would be highly offended. I think it totally depends on the people you’re sending it to.

Don’t waste stamps and paper.  I would address it to the “Cousins Family” and leave it at that.  It’s just the Save-The-Date Cards for now. 

Also, if you’re inviting their dates bc they’ve been together for a while, make sure to use their names and not write “and Guest.”

Much of my overseas family live in 1 house (my grandmother’s) so we are putting a few of our announcements in one large less-than-pretty envelope.  The point being that some of them may want to keep the cards as keepsakes and my mom thought sending 1 card didn’t give them that option and sending 6 different ones was a waste of postage.  Personally I don’t keep that kind of thing, but they do.

Actually you only send your save the dates to the one person or married couple you’re inviting. So no guest’s names go on the STD. You let yor guests know they have a plus one when you send out the actual invite. 

Like say-if you’re friends with Kim Kardashian and you’re inviting her and Kanye-you’d only address the STD to Kim-you’re telling her to save the date for your wedding…you put Kanye’s name only the inner envelope of the invite. The rational behind this is that if Kim and Kanye broke up before you send the invite…you aren’t obligated to invite Kanye too. 🙂
