How to word getting divorced parents on wedding invitations
 
 

Q. My fiancé and I are having a family wedding and a reception for those attending. He is in the military and is being sent overseas for 6 months soon after the wedding. After he returns, we plan to have a huge celebration and invite everyone we would have invited to the wedding had we had the big wedding originally planned. We are sending invitations to the wedding to family members. We are also planning to send announcements to those we plan to invite to the celebration we will have in 6 months and then send invitations to everyone as we get closer to this date. Are we doing the correct thing? Also, how should announcements and invitations to the celebration be worded?
 


A. It sounds to me like you've taken your time to come up with a well-thought-out plan. I don't see anything you would need to change.

As for the wording for invitations and announcements, it's very similar-- and both can be adjusted to suit your own preferences. In general, though, the wording would be something like:

INVITATION:

Mr. and Mrs. [your father's name]
request the honor/honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter

[your full name w/o the last name]
to
Mr. (optional) [his full name w/ the last name]

on [day of the week], the [date spelled out] of [month]
[year spelled out]
at [time spelled out]
[name of wedding location]
[name of city, state]


ANNOUNCEMENT:

Mr. and Mrs. [your father's name]
have the honor/honour of announcing (or, "announce with joy" or just "announce" on the line below)
the marriage of their daughter

[your full name w/o the last name]
to
Mr. (optional) [his full name w/ the last name]

on [day of the week], the [date spelled out] of [month]
[year spelled out]
[name of wedding location]
[name of city, state]

If you will be using your fiancé's military rank on the invitation, my understanding is that--- if he holds a rank below Captain (Army), Commander (Navy), Sergeant (AF), or Major (Marines), his full name goes on one line, his rank and branch, separated by a comma go on the line before.

Hope this helps. Best wishes on all your plans, and God bless you and your fiancé while you're apart.

  Wedding Announcements Wording
  Advice: Writing and submitting to Newspaper
  Advice: We would like to send out wedding announcements to our friends that will not be at the wedding.  We thought that including a wallet-size wedding picture would be nice.  However, the pictures will not be developed until a month after the wedding.  Is this too late to send the announcements out?
  Advice: should the announcements be just from the newly weds or from the parents like the invitations?  Should they include the elopement date and place?  Since they do not receive mail at their home, should only their PO box be mentioned; if so, how?
  Advice: We are having a private family wedding.  After the wedding we will send wedding announcements.  How do we word our return address?
  Advice: I would like to announce the engagement of my son and his fiancé to  friends and old neighbors who I haven't spoken to in a while.  This does not mean that they will be invited to a wedding, (cost prohibitive,) it's simply to let them know that they are engaged.  Is this proper?
  Advice: The Groom's father is deceased.   We would like to include groom's father's name.  is it better to include "at home card" or just state"...now reside at.."
  Advice: Wording for location, ceremony, prayers, and inviting
  Advice: If we are not inviting anyone, is it appropriate to send out wedding announcements?  If we have to, how do we write the announcements? 
  Advice: Divorced Parents: Wording
  Advice: Newly Eloped, Wording for Day of Wedding
  Advice: Second Weddings: What not to include
  Advice: Second Weddings: For myself how should I list my name
  Advice: We cannot invite all of our friends to the wedding and reception. Are announcements for friends and family who live far away (an acceptable thing to do?)  Are announcements for friends who live in the vicinity of the church rude? When should announcements be sent out?
  Advice: Wording: Las Vegas Wedding:  We are having a reception one week later in our home town.  People are more than welcome to join us in Las Vegas, but I don't want them to feel like we are asking them, but the option is there.  I was wondering if I should include the wedding ceremony information as well as the reception information.
  Advice: Wording:  We are sending them to people we could not quite afford to invite to our wedding.  I am keeping my maiden name.  Can you give us any suggestions?
