Invite problems
Posted: May 24, 2010 11:14 AM

So my parents are divorced and my dad is remarried. I've lived with my dad most of my life and I love his wife like a mom. My dad is paying for the wedding but my real mom is helping me plan the wedding.I have no clue how to word their names on the invitations. Any ideas?

 He could calm a storm and heal the blind and I bet He’d understand a heart like mine

Since there are a lot of people involved and it would be wordy to mention everyone by name (especially if you're mentioning your FILs as well), I would go with:

Together with their parents
Bride
and
Groom
request the pleasure of your company/honor of your presence
blah, blah, blah

I'd go for that option, as everyone is included without listing a bunch of names. If you want to mention everyone by name (or if they want to be mentioned by name), you have a couple other options. Since your dad and stepmom are paying for the wedding, they are technically the hosts, not your mom. Here's a couple options:

Mr. and Mrs. DadsName
request the pleasure of your company/honor of your presence
at the marriage of Mr. DadsName's daughter
Bride
to
Groom
blah, blah, blah

Mr. and Mrs. DadsName
request the pleasure of your company/honor of your presence
at the marriage of
Bride
daughter of Mr. DadsName and Mrs. MomsName
to Groom
blah, blah, blah

If your FILs want to be mentioned as well, you can add a 'son of Mr. and Mrs. TheirName' line below the groom's name on either of those.

If your mom is also contributing money towards the wedding or if your dad considers her to be cohosting, you can do the following:

Mrs. MomsName
and
Mr. and Mrs. DadsName
request the pleasure of your company/honor of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter/at the marriage of Mrs MomsName and Mr DadsName's daughter
Bride
to
Groom
son of Mr and Mrs TheirName
blah, blah, blah

If all three sets of parents are hosting, the wording would go like this:

Mrs MomsName
Mr. and Mrs. DadsName
and
Mr. and MrsILsName
request the pleasure of your company/honor of your presence
at the marriage of their children
Bride
and
Groom
blah, blah, blah

My dad and stepmom paid for most of our wedding, but my mom and stepdad paid for a good chunk too (and my mom helped a ton with the planning). My ILs also paid for the entire RD, and so we included all 3 sets of parents. It looked something like this:

Mr. and Dr. Dadsname
and
Mr. and Mrs. Stepdads name
request the honour of your presence at the marriage of their daughter
Bride
and
Groom
son of
Mr. and Mrs. Inlawsname
etc.

I didn't think it looked too crowded or wordy, and it was nice to include all of our parents because we're really close to all of them.

Hope this helps!
