I think I wrote “Celebrating their love and friendship, My Name and Husband’s Name invite you….blah blah blah.”  We didn’t mention our parents at all on the invites, but we did thank them in our wedding program because they ended up helping to contribute (my mom helped with my dress, his mom helped with photography).

@Bubbles42:  We did

Bridesfirstname Bridesmiddlename


Groomsfirstname Groomslastname

together with their parents



His parents

request the honor of your presence…

His parents also paid for his colllege education, and my parents raised me, so we both wanted to have their names on the invites–but not first, since they weren’t paying!

@AirForceWife78:  Wow!  I really like that wording!  If you don’t mind we’re going to use that, it’s perfect!
