How do you word a wedding invitation when the groom's Dad is divorced but has been remarried for the past 10 years? I being the mother of the bride would like it to read as follows:
Mr. & Mrs. John Brown
request the pleasure of your company
at the marriage uniting their daughter
Mrs. Jane Dow
Mr. & Mrs. John Dow
The groom's mother wants it to read:
Mrs. Jane Doe
Mr. John Doe
Thus leaving out the name of the step-mother since she did not raise him and his "real" mother does not want the step-parents name on the invitation.
The groom is siding with his mother. My daughter is caught in the middle and wants to do the right thing but doesn't want anyone's feelings hurt. What would you do? There is another option.....we can leave all the groom's parents names off of the invitation and just include our name at the top since we are the ones paying for the wedding.
Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! The veribage has to be at the printers on Friday! HELP!!!
