@LoveBird19:  I just made the whole invite “together with their parents” to avoid this exact problem! I thought it would be too wordy if I tried to jam everyone’s names on there. Thankfully my parents totally blessed this approach even though they’re paying.

On ours we put our names and said along with their Parents… much easier!!

Our names
together with their parents
invite you to celebrate their marriage on

We went the “Together with their parents” route too, but first we checked to make sure that my parents (who are footing the bill) wouldn’t be offended because their names aren’t on the invite.

Will it cause issues not to have the stepmom on the invite? I love mine, but she’s not on the invite, it’s:

Mom Rebwana
Dad Rebwana
request the pleasure…
son of Dad and Mom Fiance

I could have always done:
Mom Rebwana
Dad and Stepmom Rebwana 

You keep the divorced parents on separate lines, with no “and.”

I didnt really like the idea of the invitation saying it was my parents requesting the honor, I want it to be balanced like both families and us are all in it together! FIs parents are also divorced (but still really good firends) and I didnt want to exclude them from the invite so we did was

“Together with their families Brides name and Grooms name request the honor of your presence……” you could also say Together with their parents Brides name and Grooms name request the honor of your presence……”  I think it sounds better, like the bride and groom and the families are in it together, I really dont like invites that say that the birdes parents are requesting the guests to come…. Just a thought!

I would do what you said with Mr. and Mrs. Bride’s Parents request… and then …son of….with your FI’s mom’s and dad/stepmom’s names.
