Let's Help Bee Out! Any ideas?...
I have a question about invitation wording: My fiance and I are paying for the wedding, but we want our parents to be recognized on the invitations anyway. It's important to him to have his mother and her maiden name as well has her remarried last name recognized first in the order (because she's really the matriarch), but we wonder if it's too wordy.
We were going to word it like this:
Mrs. Jane Smith Doe
wishes for your presence at the union of her daughter
son of Mrs. Elizabeth 'Maiden Name' 'Remarried Name' and Mr. James 'Remarried Name'
and Mr. Billy Jacob
Do you think that's too long? Do you have any other suggestions?
