I would send the invite to the mom & son (address it to “Ms. So-and-so & son”). You don’t have to invite the father if they’re divorced. The only difficulty is that if he has custody, the mother may not be able to get the son away for long enough to come to the wedding.

Since the daughter lives apart from her mother and is over 18, send her her own invitation (like you mentioned), addressed to Miss So-and-so & guest. : )

Definitely send the 19 y/o daughter her own invite with a plus one. Send the mom an invite to her and her son.


Send the kids an invite together, since they live together, ask mom beforehand what 19y/o’s boyfriend’s name is and include him on the invite, and have it for the three of them. Send mom her own invitation. That way the son won’t feel left out initially when his sister gets an invite and he doesn’t, and she might just assume the plus one is for her brother instead of her boyfriend. I know it sounds complicated, and it probably goes against some ettiquette book somewhere, but I think this way will make it clear from the getgo who is invited.
