It’s your wedding, not hers!  Better to ask forgiveness than permission, right? Wink

But really, I think it’s gracious of you to address her invites the way that she wants them.  The invitation is for your wedding, and something you will keep and trreasure forever, so it should be worded how you would like it to be.

could you have your fi interface? he might have a better read as to exactly how far the issue can be pushed. i don’t think she needs to proof the invites but if it’s something that’s uber important to her.. well you don’t want to start off on the wrong foot.

I’m listing them that way too and not asking them about it first. Miss Slice is right, it’s your wedding and your invite 🙂

I wouldn’t worry about it. Like bees said before, it’s your wedding not hers! (and I bet you are thanking your lucky stars for that house fire hey?!)

I was wondering what to do for my invites too. I was just going to do “together with our parents”, because I thought we were paying for everything. Turns out my parents are paying for the reception and my dress so I definately want them on there! My parents are together, but never got married and have different last names, so I was at a loss trying to figure out wording. Luckily, I just got my friends invites in the mail and am going to copy her by putting mine and FI last names, and then just our parents’ first names. No Mr & Mrs anywhere.

Do what makes you comfortable! And, like you said, you could address her side of invites that way, and she will probably never know you didn’t do them ALL like that!
