Wedding Invitations & Paper

Addressing Save the Date / Invites - Special Circumstances...

I've looked around and wanted to see what the etiquette was for addressing Save the Dates and Invitations for certain circumstances. For instance, I have read all over that any guest over the age of 18 should get their own STD / invite. Ok, that's fine. BUT - does this count if they live at home? I have a few guests on my list who are well over 18 and currently reside at the home of their parents. Is it wrong to include them on the same STD? What about the invitation? I am guessing that they still get their own, but figured I'd ask. To me, it seems silly to send 3 STDs to the same house (and same for invitation!) but I want to do what is proper...

    The STD you can send one to each household. The invitations should be sent separately to each adult and their SO. So if adult cousin A  lives with his parents, you can send 1 STD to everyone, but the cousin should get his own wedding invitation separate from his parents.

    It also depends on the people. We sent an STD to my husband's parents and one to his adult brother who lives at home because we knew he would be upset if he didn't get his own STD. I do the same with their Christmas cards.
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14
