Wedding Invitation Wording Help?

Groom's Mother remarried after Father had passed. Don't want new husband listed. How to word the line?

Do we (Bride & Groom) use last names on invites or just First & Middle?

Brides Parents are the hosts.

Most of Brides familywill be there.

Groom's family will only be like 3-5 people. (Mother, New husband, & Grandfather) that's it.

    Something like this discretely avoids mentioning the groom's mother's husband:

    David and Mary Doe

    cordially invite ......

    to the wedding of their daughter Jane Sue,

    to Andrew John Smith,

    son of Becky Brown and the late John Smith

    The mention of the groom's late father is optional. You can alter it to use Mr/Mrs/Ms all through for the parents if you'd like to be more formal. You can put in your surname if you want (it's just usually tradition not to).

    Also there are lots of sample invitation wordings on the web.

    Mr and Mrs John Smith request the pleasure of your company at the wedding of their daughter Sarah to James Brown, the son of Mrs. Elizabeth Powers and the late Mr. Jasper Brown.

    you only include the persons paying for the wedding in the beginning where they are issuing the invitation as hosts and you must list the mother of the groom using her new married name.

    Mr and Mrs John Smith


    Mrs Jane Doe

    Invite you the marriage of their children

    Jessica Ann


    Thomas John Smith

    My husband gave me a list of ten people.

    When I shown it to his mother, she could not believe on how many people he did not put on. Like his father whole family(Uncles, Aunts, grandparents, cousins) Are you sure there nobody else?

    • Yes I am sure that is everyone that is coming. His side of the family wants nothing to do with anyone. They didn't even know he was born unti l he was like 5. They just a bunch of Drug peoples. I don't care who they invite as long as they let us know. Its the Mother of the Groom & Groom's Decision.
