- Wedding: October 2014
I need some help on wording invitations without hurting anyone’s feelings. My wedding ceremony is in a church and reception at an old Meeting House. FI and I live in Oz, but are going back to my hometown in MA to get married. My mom is deceased, and my dad is paying for the reception. FI and I are paying for the rest of the wedding. FI’s parents are not coming to the wedding and are not contributing to any wedding costs.
So really my dad is hosting the wedding. Would I say that dad requests your presence…. Or dad and late mom? Or together with our families FI and AussieJenn request your presence…. or something else? I don’t want to hurt FI’s feelings, but also don’t want to give the impression that they are going to be there.
