The Ideal Invitation

A friend lost her mate several years ago and recently developed a friendship with a man who had also lost his spouse. They seemed a perfect match, and all their children agreed they should get married. While they were excited about the upcoming nuptials, they didn’t need more crystal vases, blenders, toasters, etc. So this was their invitation:

Phil, Richard, Karen and Allison
and
John, Matt and Steve
request the honor of your presence
at the marriage of their
Mother and Father.

Because they are combining two households,
they already have at least two of everything.

So please, no presents!
Reception and garage sale immediately following the ceremony.
