“together with their families”

This sounds exactly like the situation that happened in our family a couple of years ago.  They went with “Groom’s Name” and “Bride’s name” have chosen x date to be married, etc.  and then just listed their parents names at the bottom, which you could leave off if you wish.  Her parents didn’t attend and didn’t help pay either, it was all done by her aunts.

Have you asked your aunt and uncle? I was going to write “together with their families” but my mother was appalled. “How dare you not write out our full names!” she cried.

Ask your family to see if they have any expectations first, and if they don’t, get a bit creative.

Along with the Taylors

Bride and Groom

invite you…

or

Bride and Groom

invite you to Mr and Mrs Taylor’s home

for their wedding…

 

If you can’t find any good wording, then don’t include them in the invitation, but write a big thank-you note to them on your website, and when speeches come up, toast to them for making the day possible. Unless they’re only doing this to see their names in print, a heartfelt thank-you should make them feel appreciated.

That is unless they want to see their names in print like my mom…

Good luck!
