I am not really close with my stepdad. He is a nice guy and everything but I just don’t get along very much with him, so I am not confortable with his name on the invites, plus I think it will be kind of weird three names on my side (mom’, dad’s and stepdad’s) and just one on his side (his mom, since his dad died a long time ago).
Regarding who is paying, it is not clear yet. The wedding is set to be in 9 months and so far we’ve only paid the place deposit with our money, mi parents and his mom say they will help but is mostly with what they can, I think we’ll end paying for most of it.
so I was thinking of wording the invite something like this:
(His name) and (my name), along with their families, invite you to..

I like the idea of just saying “along with their families”
My FI and I are paying for our wedding so we didn’t even bother putting our parents names, but I think if you put along with their families it includes everybody without having to worry about having your stepdads name on their when you don’t want it!

@AnaA: We put both parents’ names even though my parents paid, so I don’t think it matters who pays. In your case, I think “along with their families” is a great way to word it.

Thanks! I think it is a nice way to word it too!
i just hope my mom doesn’t feel bad, since in Mexico they usually list each parent on almost every invite, and my mom can get very sensitive hehe.

I think that “togethor with their families” is not always fair, espeically to mother of the bride.

As long as no family is “formally” paying/hosting then yes you can just do “together with their familiy”. You could also say daughter or Dad and Mom.
