That’s exactly what we did, and it worked great for everyone involved. 🙂

That’s pretty traditional for a wedding invite.  Just keep his parents’ names separate and use their current last names (if your mom changed hers).

I just realized that ours don’t include FI’s parents’ names.  It wasn’t on purpose but the invitation we picked out didn’t have it as part of the template (weird!).  Hopefully they won’t feel left out.

We did that even though my parents paid for it. It’s more to honor DH’s parents. I don’t think anyone thinks about who paid for the wedding. And ours was pretty obvious to anyone who was interested since my dad made a joke about writing checks in his FOB speech. (Side note: who cares who paid for the wedding? As a guest, I’m just happy someone sprung for decent food and an open bar or whatever.)

Everyone knows what a host line is except guys. I think you could assure him that everyone will know he has parents.

We are putting both parents on our host line even though neither is technically paying. We have invited extended family – (big party!) and wanted to make sure everyone know who’s kids were the ones getting married.
