Question re: addressing save the dates
Posted 20 March 2008 - 04:15 PM
We are sending out our save the dates early next week and I'm working on the addresses, I've already decided to put "& guest" if they're single or I don't know their boyfriend/girlfriends name, my question is about inviting families...
I know on the actual invitation, you're just supposed to put Mr & Mrs John Smith and on the inner envelope put Mr & Mrs John Smith and Lisa & Bob.
Is it ok to address the save the date to "The Smith Family" so that when they start booking, they know the kids are invited too.

we didn't put & guest on any of our envelopes for the STDs. we have a limited number of single or just dating friends, and they either knew in advance they could bring a guest or called to pass it by me before they did the preliminary rsvp. the couple of people i was not sure would know it was ok to bring a guest, i followed up with via email or phone. since we have the preliminary rsvp, i will know who is coming that i need to address invitations to, so i will not need to put any & guests because each person had to rsvp with their name and their guests name.
i think its perfectly acceptable to address things to a whole family if you want them to understand kids are invited.
