Save the dates....

Hey ladies!

We're starting to work on our STD's and I have a random question. My FI has his aunt, uncle and two cousins that we're inviting to the wedding. His older cousin has kids. We're not inviting kids to the wedding. So should I make out the address label for "The Smith Family" and then when we send out the invites worry about how everything is addressed? Or should I make out the STD label for Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Johnnie and Suzie?

TIA!!!!

    We addressed the STD identically to the invites. You don't want to give people the impression you're inviting kids on the STD and then give them the wedding invite and have the wording differ. Consistency is definitely key when it comes to the kids situation.

    Why not send a STD to FI's aunt and uncle and then a seperate one to each cousin who is invited and just list them by name? If the cousin w/ kids is married, just sent a seperate STD to him and his wife rather one STD for all 4

    What if you send separate ones?  I can imagine what the envelope would look like.  You would probably send 2 different invites if they are old enough to have kids right?

    That's what I was thinking Addressing the first STD to Mr. & Mrs and their son, since he's old enough to attend but still lives at home. The other cousin also lives in the same house. She's a single mom of little children that obviously are too young to attend. I just didn't know if it was silly to send 2-3 STD's to the same address.

    I wouldn't say it is silly to send 2-3 STD to the same address. I know I am going to be sending some that way. I have cousins that I'm inviting that still live with my aunt and uncle. However, they are all in their early to mid twenties and I thought it would be appropriate for each of them to get their own invite IMO. I would also agree to keep things consistent b/t STD and invites.

    Anyone over 18, regardless of where they live, should get their own STD and invite.
