Q: If I am inviting a family with young children to my wedding, do I put the children’s names with the parent’s name on the outer envelope? Or do I write Mr. and Mrs. Smith on the outer envelope and then on the inner write: Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Angela and Michael on the next line?
A: The outer envelope may be addressed to The Smith Family, and the inner envelope would read:
Mr. and Mrs. Michael Smith
Miss Angela Smith
Mister Michael Smith
