Announcement Wording

My parents will be paying for the wedding and my fiancé's parents are divorced and remarried, how do we word the wedding invitation to include all three sets of parents?  Thank you!


Dear Amy

As a general rule of etiquette, the parents paying for the wedding are the ones issuing the invitation.  In your case, because you have stated, it is your parents paying for the wedding, it is entirely correct not to include your fiancé's parents names.  However, if you chose to add his parents names to the invitation, there are a couple different ways to do so.

The parents of
Amy Jones and Groom's Name
request the honour of your presence
at the marriage of their children
on the date of your wedding
Nineteen Hundred and Ninety Eight
at the time of your wedding
Church name
Church address
City and state address

Mr. and Mrs. Amy's Parents Name
Mr. and Mrs. Groom's Mother and Step-Father's Name
Mr. and Mrs. Groom's Father and Step-Mother's Name

Another example would be....

Mr. and Mrs. Amy Jones Parents Name
request the honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
Amy Your Middle Name
Mr. Groom's  Full Name
Son of Mrs. New Husband's Name (or) Son of Mr. and Mrs. New Husband's Name
and Mr. Groom's Father's Name  (or)  and Mr. and Mrs. Groom's Father's Name

I hope this helps in your decision.  Also, just in case you missed "Unique Wedding Idea's" on our web site, be sure to check it out again.  Web sites are available to announce your upcoming nuptials, giving opportunity for you to share a wealth of information about you and your fiancé's wedding plans, how you met, directions to your wedding, where you are registered, your wedding party, and the list goes on and on.  Best of all, it is a secure site and only those people with whom you share your web site address will have access to it.   Be sure to see the sample announcement in "Unique Wedding Ideas" at
