Um, no, “together with their parents” has NOTHING to do with whether you’ve been married before. This person doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Maybe she’s been to one wedding where they used that wording and they had been married before? Who knows? But the wording you want to use means that you and your fiance and your parents are all contributing to the hosting (i.e. financing) of the wedding.

I would never think that if I saw that wording and also everyone your inviting knows you and would know you haven’t been married before. I like the wording and think it’s pretty standard when everyone is chipping in.

The print shop is definitely confused.

Huh??  Not only have I never heard of such a thing, but I cannot for the life of me understand how “Together with their parents” would imply a second marriage…  Very very odd, ignore her, it means exactly what it says – that the bride & groom, together with their parents, invite the guests to the wedding.

That’s bizarre that printshop lady said that. It is completely not true. Keep you’re wording, it’s perfectly fine.

@Sanola831:  i think “together with their parents” is perfectly appropriate for your situation. 

i don’t know why the printer would tell you that is for 2nd marriages??????  that doesn’t make sense.  ignore the printer’s comments completely.

OK, I am in the EXACT same situation. Father deceased, mother paying for some but can’t do much, his parents paying a huge chunk and fiance and I paying a huge chunk. I’ve been debating on the “together with their parents” wording because my father is deceased. I wondered if it would be confusing or insensitive to the fact that my father has passed. Especially since I have a stepfather…who is wonderful but I wouldn’t want anyone thinking he is replacing my Dad.  My Dad left me some money and I am using it toward the wedding, so I kind of think he is part of the “togeth with thier parents” phrasing. Thoughts? Does “together with thier families” imply something different?
