Mo, I think that j_nicolle’s recent post may help.

My parents are divorced and so are Smarty’s parents.  This is what we’ve decided to go with, and ran it by all of the parents for safe measure:

Mrs. Crafty’s Mom
Mr. Crafty’s Dad
invite you to share in the joy
at the marriage of their daughter


son of
Mrs. Smarty’s Mom
Mr. Smarty’s Dad

I’ve read that if the parents are divorced, the mother is listed before the father and on a separate line.  This applies to whether she has remarried or not.  If you are including your stepfather, it would read just as you wrote (Mr. and Mrs. SnowStepdad, on the first line).

Good luck!  :o)

I don’t know about the first part, but on the last part…..

usually people use ‘request your presents’ or ‘request the honour of your presents’, ‘invite you to join us’

Those seem to be the most common ones. I used the second one. Hope its some help!

You can also google ‘wedding invitation wording’ then you can select a site that have free samples of wedding invitation wording.

Together with thier familes…and then
