could you write “together with their families” and leave it at that?

My parents are also divorced and I am writing Mr. My dad and Mrs. My mom. I think you do it this way rather than Mr & Mrs because they are no longer married. I think when you put the names together it adds the assumptions that they are married. Plus, my mom now has a different last name anyhow.

I agree with “together with their families”, but someone beat me to it! 😉

I put;

Together with their parents

Bride and Groom

request the honor of your presence

in the celebration of their marriage





My parents paying for almost everything, but his Mom gave some. And his Dad remarried but has passed and his step-mom is not on great terms with him. To keep the drama low key, we agreed “together with their parents”. That way, theres no saying who paid for how much, whose married to who, and all the other confusion we encountered. No one is better than the other and no one is excluded.

We have the same problem, there are so many ways you could put it, I agreee with some earlier posts by just leaving it simple and saying together with their families, or join us to celebrate, Help us to celebrate, I made my own invitations and put:

We invite you to share in the celebration of marriage of A to B

Good Luck!

I don’t think a generic mention of families is appropriate if yours is contributing and his is not. So what you’re suggesting is close to right.

If your father + stepmother are contributing as a couple then I think they both need a mention. They get more “space” than your mother, but I think it is offset by the fact that your mother is mentioned first.

I see no need to put his stepmother in because she’s not his mother.

If you’re in North America it’s “honor”, otherwise it’s “honour”.
