How should I invite children?

Simple Answer: Include “and family” to your invitation envelope.

If you do would like to invite children to your wedding, you should make it clear in the way you address the invitation envelope. If you have a formal invitation with an outer and inner envelope, you should address the outer envelope with the parents names alone. In the inner envelope, you should address everyone who’s invited by full name and title. If a boy is under thirteen he should be referred to as “Master,” and girls under the age of eighteen should be addressed as “Miss.” If your invitation is less formal you can add “and family” behind the parents names on the outer envelope and on the inner envelope you may write all names without titles. You may link the children’s names using “and.” Another thing to remember: If the child is eighteen or older, they should receive their own invitation specifically addressed to them.
