We’re trying to nail down the wording for the invites – we’re going the more formal route, with my parents hosting, but my FI’s father passed away ten years ago and his mother has remarried. Question is: what do I put for the “son of” part?
Son of Mrs. Kathy Smith Jones (his name is Smith, she goes by all three)
Son of Mrs. Kathy Smith Jones and the late Mr. Michael Smith
Son of Mrs. Kathy Smith Jones and Mr. John Jones (he is close with his stepfather, but not as a father)
I don’t want to offend his mother/stepfather, but he’s not really the son of his stepfather… I’ve tried asking him, but he hasn’t really figured out that this matters yet. I could call his mother, but don’t really want to if I don’t have to 🙂
