    We updated the modern wording and used Mr. & Mrs. John and Jane Smith or Mr. Robert Glass and Ms. Shannon Black. Maybe that will be a good compromise?

    I’d make a slight change to red pepper’s suggestion and put it as ‘mr john and mrs jane smith with mr. bill and ms. hilary brown’

    I think your parents should be MrMrs if they want, and FI’s should “match” them. could you ask his parents which of the two MrMrs they prefer?

    unless your wedding is *very* informal, I think it would be weird to not have MrMrs.

    Help! I need advice on this too! My dad isn’t around so using just my mom’s name is easy, but FI’s parents are divorced, his dad is remarried (but the new wife is NOT considered a stepmother, so we’re not including her name) and his mom doesn’t even want the dad’s name on the invitation! Sheesh! I hope you find something that works. I don’t know what to pick other than your last option on your poll, separating their full names. Do you think that’s what you’ll choose?
