So I have been pondering over this for months, the darn invitation wording. Are you ready for all the elements...? Both our parents are hosting, both my Father and Step mother, Mother and Step father, and his parents (thank goodness they are not divorced and remarried because the invitation would look like a book! lol.
So this is what I got so far
Mr.&Mrs.Bell (brides dad), Mr.& Mrs.Everding(brides mom), and
Mr. and Mrs. Cruz (grooms parents)
request the pleasure of your company
at the marriage of their children
Brides First and Middle Name
Grooms First Middle and Last Name
Reception to Follow
Please no Children
So are the commas appropriate for the formal invite, and does this seems like a mouth full of people? We did consider just saying "together with their parents" but we both feel like everyone who is putting money towards the wedding needs to be honored.
Thank you for any input!
PS. Is "please no children" rude?
