(Closed) Whole family invites vs separate invites

  • poll: Whole family invites vs separate invites

    Whole family invites are the custom with my people and that’s what I’m doing.

    Whole family invites aren’t the custom but I’m doing it anyway.

    I feel guilty about the trees but people would flip out if only sent one invite.

    I don’t think anyone would flip out but I like being correct and following etiquette.

    We included college aged kids on their parents invites, because we collected addresses whlie they were in their spring semester, sent invites during their summer break, and the wedding was actually during their fall semester … so I had no desire to try to keep track of what to send where, hahaha.

    Beyond that though, we did send separate invites, although it was only 2-3 more that we had to send. I think if they’re still living at home or using their parents’ address, it’s okay to send the invite as a family, but that’s my opinion, not official etiquette of any kind, haha.

    We did seperate invites for families with children over 18 still living with them. There adults and if they don’t want to come they have that choice and deserve there own invite.

    Yea, it’s a hard call. I sent a separate one for my Maid/Matron of Honor who lives with her parents but I sent a combined one to my future niece who still lives with her mother (FSIL). They are both in their 20’s (27 and 22 respectively though). I think you have to make the call based on knowing the people. I know my Maid/Matron of Honor would want her own to keep and I know my future niece doesn’t give a crap, lol. I’m using less paper than most invites so I’m okay with it, and I’m not doing RSVP cards so….yea
