Q&A: Invitations: Not Using Inner Envelopes?
Q.
Our wedding invitations do not have an inner envelope. How should I address an invite to a large family without using "and family"?
A.
Put the parents' names on one line and the kids' names underneath, like this:
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Sullivan[or Robert and Sandra Sullivan]Brandon, Jennifer, and Kyle12345 First StreetAnywhere, USA 98765
If you need two lines for the children's first names, that's fine. Keep in mind that children over the age of 18 should get separate invites, whether they live with their parents or not.

I found this on theknot.com and it kinda answered my question. Can you still address it Mr. and Mrs. Blah Blah Blah and family? Or should you be more specific. We aren't inviting a lot of children because it will be such a small wedding so this won't be done to many times. So far the only children are going to be close family, and there aren't many if any.

Also should we still get vellum to put in the invite even though we don't have two envelopes?
Or do you use tissue? I've seen both so I have no clue.
