- Wedding: July 2013
We’re starting to think about the wording for our wedding invitation and are having a hard time deciding how we should go about it. We have a couple of kinks that make it more difficult. My parents are divorced. My mom is single and my dad is remarried… To a woman with the same name as my mom. Yup. My mom and stepmom have the same first and last name and don’t have too much of a sense of humor about it! My fiance’s parents are married. The contribution to the wedding is roughly broken down like:
Mom: 22% / Dad & Stepmom: 22% / Fiance’s Parents: 22% / Fiance and Me: 32%
The only option we have come up with is “Together with their families, Bride and Groom” etc. and not list any of the parents’ names. The only concern is that we aren’t specifically acknowledging any of them by their names, but we can’t think of any other solution!
My mom has said that she plans to change her last name back to her maiden name when I change mine. It would be easier if she bumped up her timeline to before the wedding. Even if she did though, I wouldn’t want to emphasize that she is the only single one of the parents… Any words of wisdom??
