Am I referring to our parents appropriately?

That’s more or less how we did it.  I think we left the mom’s names out because my mom felt it was more “formal” that way, but if we’d left them I would have wrote it this way.


Oh also – I think technically his full name should be written out so:

Ashley Lauren


Travis Nathan Doe

son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert and Rebecca Doe.

@WillBeMrsD:  I definitely agree with the groom’s name being in full.



@StL.Ashley:  I think how you’ve written the parents name is nice.

If you’re going to use the mothers’ first names, you should omit the honorifics.
