I had extras, so I sent them to my parents, FI’s parents, and every member of our wedding party.  I did not sent a separate invite to older children still living at home.  I just addressed them as:

Mr. & Mrs. Mary Smith

Ms. Laura Smith



You don’t HAVE to send one to your wedding party, but I think it’s a nice gesture.

I’m sending one to my parents and Future In-Laws. ALso, my bridal party. I’ve heard the rule that you send them to children who live outside of their parent’s household.

I think all of the people you listed should get one! They are invited afterall right? 🙂

If you are giving a choice of meals, you have to send one to all of those people.  I would send separate ones to the people at your mom’s office, but it really depends on the formality of your wedding.

Definitely send an invitation to your parents though…they may want it as a keepsake.

I think you should send one to anyone who is invited.  I think I would be sad or even offended if I didn’t receive an invitation just because I knew I was already invited.  Plus who doesn’t like getting mail?  🙂

Typically…everyone receives ones…parents and bridal party included….most love to receive them in the mail…you can find some really economical or even DIY

I would send them to everyone even if they know when it is.  It’s so great getting mail!

Send them to everyone that is invited to your wedding.

If children are under 18 and living at home, the invitation goes to the parents and minor child.  So one invitation per family.  Make sense?
