Let me know what you tihnk of this invitation wording!
My dad is hosting, but parents are divorced, dad is remarried, and FI’s parents live locally while my dad is 300 miles away so they are helping out with organizing things and storing all of our supplies so we want to include them.
With great joy
the parents of
Bride Middle Last
Groom Middle Last
request the honor of your presence
at the Nupitual Mass
uniting their children
in the Sacrement of Holy Matrimony
on Saturday, the tenth of November
Two thousand twelve
At eleven o’clock in the morning
St. Agnes Catholic Church

I think that is worded perfectly for your unique situation. It flows really nicely.

I like it, but I worry that your dad’s 2nd wife is excluded? Can you say the “families” of xxxx?
Small points — there are a couple of typos (nuptial, sacrament), and I”d double-check the capitalization (why capitalize “At” when you aren’t capitalizing the beginning words in the other lines, etc.).

@stillme: yes, i didn’t copy and paste form the template, just typed quickly- they’re spelled correctly on the proof!
i consider my step mom a parent, I will double check with her that she feels included by this though!

is the use of the word “children” appropriate on a wedding invitation? we will be 21 and 23 on wedding day, so we practically are still children!

@moose91: you will always be their “children”, regardless of your age.
