Yikes! You’ve got a lot going on there! I’d say the easiest way to word it would be “Together with their families, bride’s name and groom’s name invite you to join them in celebrating their union”..blahddy blah blah.

Agreed w/ @MrsMcGyro … “together with their families” etc etc… that covers everyone.

Yep, I’d go with “Together with their families …..”

We are paying for our wedding on our own but still put that line out of respect for the support they have offered through the years.

I agree! You don’t want to list out each person since it’ll take up too much space…I’d write “Together with their families” OR “Together with their parents”

My situation is almost the same and we went with “together with their families”

For that reason and the 5 different last names they all have, plus my different last name (not the same as my mother’s current or any step’s or past relationships, lol!)

I agree – together with their families.   We used it just out of respect, even though my parents and we are paying for everything – we didn’t want his mom and his dad left out. 

If our parents were divorced/remarried and divorced with a common law husband we would have used ‘Together with their parents’

Good luck!

I think you need to do “Jane Doe and John Doe, together with their families…”  

My situation is similar to yours, but it’s just my divorced parents paying, not the step parents.
