Will you help me write my wedding announcement?

Quick details... For the local paper. Got married last Saturday. We have 4 children combined (I bring 3 teenagers to the marriage, and he brings a 7 year old son). My parents passed away a few years ago. His dad passed away last year, but his mom lives in our home town. Neither of us have degrees, but we have successful careers... mine in HR, and his in Plant Management. I want to say something about our "family" being joined in marriage, or something like that, since we are blending our families, children and all, but I don't want to sound too corny!!! HELP!!

    there is not any requirement that you position an ad interior the newspaper. you won't be able to administration who reads the paper, so certain, you're taking a danger of your father seeing it and inappropriately performing. in case you favor to position an ad interior the paper you are able to position it after the very truth. it is, "Jane Doe and John Roe were married Friday, December 29, 2006 at....." as far as something pre-wedding ceremony, decrease the interest to the invites themselves. That way you are able to administration who's invited. you're not from now on required to placed mothers and fathers' names on invites both. only say, "Jane ane Joe invite you to percentage of their happiness...." yada, yada, yada. in the adventure that your fiance needs to contain his mothers and fathers, do so when your names. wedding ceremony invites have become very versatile in at present's international of nuclear relationships.
