Envelope Addressing Etiquette for Outer Envelope Only Invitations::Including Children

Having inner envelopes is the formal way to list childrens names on an invitation normally. But if your invitation does not have inner envelopes, the first (listed below) is the most accepted "formal" way of all. I prefer the second if there are more than 2 children as it gets really sloppy and sometimes impossible to write it nice the first way. You can use different options for different families depending on how many children, how well you know them, etc. It's your day so you choose. ALWAYS, list by age and give a separate invitation to children over 18 years of age!
