    My wife and I both have iPhones with iCloud accounts. We have separate Home calendars for random stuff not necessarily of interest to the other person, and my wife has a Work calendar that's shared with me. However, when the need arises for me to invite her to an event on my non-shared Home calendar, when she presses Accept it doesn't add it to her own Home calendar, it adds it to her Work calendar, which is shared with me and causes a duplicate entry to show up on my iPhone.

    Is there a way to change the calendar that accepted events go into? If possible, when she presses Accept I'd like the event to show up on her Home calendar, not her Work calendar. Note for reference that I do have the Home calendar set as the default in the preferences.

    I believe it because her work calendar is associated with the email address you use to send the invite. Since you share her work calendar, why not just add the event to her work calendar and not send an invite.

    Well, it may seem like an over simplistic response, but I'd rather not do that because those events aren't actually related to her Work, which is what the calendar is for.

    If you want it to go to her iCloud calendar you have to send the invite to her iCloud account.

    It is going to her iCloud account/email address. It's just not going to a non-shared calendar.

    I guess a decent enough solution, and maybe simpler, is to just have a shared Family calendar for that kind of stuff. I think that's what I'll do. Overthinking gets you every time.

    Okay, I see what you are saying now, she has two iCloud calendars "Home" and "Work" and she shares the "Work" one with you, but not the "Home" one. When you send her an invite, you would like it to go to her "Home" calendar.

    Make sure that she has her default calendar set to "Home", invites should go there.

    That will work. Again the reason the invite goes to her work calendar is because the invite is sent to her email address associated with it. That's how iCloud work.
