Wedding Invitations & Paper

STD address wording for a family

I am inviting 3 of my cousins, who all currently live at home with their mom (who is divorced from my uncle & not invited) and my one cousin's boyfriend - who also lives at home with all of them. Do I address the invite like this:

Oldest Cousin First & Last & Boyfriend First & Last

Cousin & Cousin Last Name


It seems odd to put the boyfriend above my other 2 cousins? Is there a better way to do this?


Re: STD address wording for a family

  • If they are adults they should get their own invitation anyway, even if they live at home. So put your cousin and her bf on one, if your other cousins are adults give them each their own, and your aunt on one with any underage cousins. It all depends on how old your cousins are. 
    STDs are less formal so for now you could probably get away with: 

    AuntFirst Last
    Cousins and BF first names

    Come time to send the invitations you should send them separately.

    You only use the ampersand sign (&) if people are married.
    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

    Oldest cousin
    Middle cousin cousin
    Youngest cousin

    Ms. Jane Smith
    Ms. Susan Smith
    Ms. Mary Smith
    Mr. John Jones

    Technically, there should be three invitations, one to each cousin.  Boyfriend's name goes on a separate line, like above.  This will eliminate the problem of multiple names.

    Oops- misread that.
