I’ll be doing my invites next month and I’ve run into a little snag with wording. Both of our parents want their names on the invites and I love the idea, the only problem is that my fiance’s parents are divorced and both are remarried. We’ve decided to only include biological parents on the invites. Any ideas how we can word them?
Right now I’m thinking something along the lines of:
Jane and John Smith along with Mary Marshall and Robert Jones request the honour of your presence…. and so on.
How does that sound to you? If you have any other suggestions I’d love to hear them!

@TKG83: That sounds totally fine, why wouldn’t it? I know both parents are remarried but they’re both requesting the guest’s presence so I don’t see why their names shouldn’t go together.

Thanks, I just feel bad not adding their new significant others. But, wedding invitations are already so wordy as it is and I want to try to avoid as much of that as I can. Keep it as to the point as possible. My fiance isn’t particularly fond of his step mom either so I didn’t want to put her on the invite. I know his mother’s husband is totally fine with it, but I do worry about my how his father is going to be. I guess you just can’t please everyone.
