It might be worthwhile to talk to your mom about this, just to avoid any hurt feelings down the road. Is there any reason why you didn’t want their names on it? You could always explain that to her.

I also agree that you should talk to your mom.  If your parents are paying for more than 50% of the wedding and they want their names on the invitations, then I think their names should be on the invitations.  I know it feels like you are inviting the guests, but would you really be able to invite all of those guests without your parents’ monetary contributions?

My mom and step-dad and FI’s dad and step-mom are helping pay for the wedding. In your case, I would say that using both sets of names on the invite would be totally fine. I can’t becaue first of all, my parents are obviously divorced, and my mom and step-dad aren’t actually married, they’ve just been together for ALONG time. (my mom kept my dad’s last name after they were divorced, how weird would that look!) My dad and I don’t really have a relationsship, and he is single. My FI’s dad and step mom are actually married, so that wouldn’t be a problem, but my FMIL (who was never married to FI’s dad) and her fiance are not married yet, so it would look weird as well. Here’s how it would look if I did type it all out!

Ms. T. Truax & Mr. R Hughes,

Mr. E. Truax

together with

 Ms. M. Wounaris & Mr. R. Yuricic

Mr. R. Bailey & Mrs. R. Bailey

Crazy Right!! I say do it if you can. In my case this is not possible!! Ha

We have a similar situation where everyone is paying for seomthing.  we are doing:

together with their parents

mr and mrs brides parents

and

mr and mrs grooms parents

request the honour of your presance

at the marraige of their children

blah blah blah

 

we feel that having both parents listed before us, it indicates that everyone is helping.
