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.

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!

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.
