Congratulations! You're engaged! Now you get to tell all your friends and family and invite them to the best party ever — your wedding. There are a few things to note about wedding invitation wording.
Filling out invitations correctly can be a bit tricky. There are many titles to remember, spell-checks to implement, and unexpected updates to keep track of like address changes.
All of these details are critical to have. Here's a helpful guide on how to address wedding invitation envelopes for every situation.
To Children and Families
Younger guests can be included on the inner envelope of their parents' invitation listed by first name.
However, children are normally not addressed on the outer envelope. For girls under 18, you'll want to use "Miss." Boys don't require a title until they're 18.
