So I avoided the whole stepmother thing on our invites with “Together with their parents, Bride and Groom invite you……”
But now I’m stuck with the programs. I’m putting my parents on the program, but should I put my stepmother’s name with my dad or just my mom and dad.
Dad and Stepmother

I have a mom and stepdad and a dad and stepmom and his parents are still married. (keep in mind I cant do all the fancy stuff while typing this) So we put:
Mr & Mrs Gary Cosby
Mr & Mrs Bryan Murphy
Mr & Mrs Kenneth Storck
request the pleasure of your company
at the wedding of their children
Kenneth Storck Jr

I really think it just depends on your relationship with your stepmother. Are you guys close? Would she be offended if she were omitted? My husband’s parents are divorced, and his dad is engaged. Even if he was re-married when we got married, we would have just listed his mom and dad’s name. I think it just depends on your personal situation!

I say it depends on how close you are with your step mom….
If you think she should be included with your dad in the parents section then do
Mr. and Mrs. Bride’s Dad
Ms. Brides Mom
if you don’t think she should be included as a parent, then don’t include her. If there are other factors in play (i.e. your dad’s feelings wanting her mentioned or your mom not wanting her mentioned), then I say do what you think is best, it’s your wedding. And if neither party is hosting the event. then they really don’t have a say.

I just didn’t put my parents’ names in the program for that reason. *shrug* My mom said she didn’t mind, so I just listed our wedding party and our grandparents that have passed in a memoriam section.
