Has anyone ever seen or even heard of this type of wording for an invitation.
The parenthesis are actually on the invitation!
Mr. and Mrs. Fred Flintstone ( Mother of the Bride)
Mr. and Mrs. Barney Rumble ( Parents af the Groom)
Mr. George Jetson ( father of the Bride)
Have you ever seen each set of parents explained like that?

Nope but then I don’t think I’ve been to too many weddings where the parents are divorced. Actually maybe never. How weird is that? Anyway back on track, I would think that’s a little unusual but these days I think almost anything goes.

I have never heard of this and think it is VERY different! It almost seems like they forgot to delete the examples. Like place mother of bride here!
Who cares who the people are! The people getting invited to a wedding will now who is who and if they don’t does it REALLY matter!

I have never seen that, but I am not surprised. Both my parents and my FH’s parents are divorced, and Remarried! Our invitations would have been even longer, and more confusing. I opted for the "Together with their Parents" wording. Everyone is contributing (including us) so it just seemed the best choice.

It doesn’t seem that off to me. All three sets of parents are hosting so their names should be on top. Why is that weird?
The thing that jumped out at me is that the bride’s father came after the groom’s parents. I would have put his name after the Bride’s mom, but that’s just me.

It is WEIRD because the parenthesis are on the invitation explaining who is who!!!!!!!!! I don’t think that all three sets of parents being on there is weird!

That definitely looks like someone used an invitation template and, whether they forgot to or didn’t know they should, didn’t delete the placeholders. Oops!

OH wow, I totally missed that! Wow, ok, yes THAT is weird!

I don’t think it’s too weird, especially if they just want to let everybody know who’s who, and all of them are contributing to the party.

Well lets see…A guest is not going to assume that a neighbor or a friend is paying for the wedding. And if the grooms parents have the same last name as the groom and the bride’s dad has the same last name as the bride then that either leaves the different last name to the bride’s mom or a neighbor!!!!!!!!!!!!!
