Title for Father in Wedding Invitation

by Jo

The father of the bride is an airline captain. Is it proper to use his title on the wedding invitation.?

Also the grooms parents are divorced and the father is remarried. We are using their names as " Son of". As the mothers title do we use Mrs. Or Ms.?

Hello Jo,

Regarding the mother of the groom, please use the title she prefers which means you must ask her preference. To answer your question about the "title" For the bride's father, I suggest that "captain" is a military rank denoting a person in the armed services and therefore not appropriate on the wedding invitation so use Mr. and Mrs.

Thank you for your question.
