- Wedding: April 2013
I’m trying to get an idea for the wording on our invitations, the order is going to go out in the next month or so. We have kind of a tricky situation.
My fiance and I are paying for the majority of the wedding. His parents are kicking in for the cost of the bar (although they already had a set # in their mind that they were giving us. His brother is also getting married, and for reasons of being fair, they thought it was just easier to give us the same $$ they were giving them and letting us do what we want with it. The amount probably more than covers the bar-our package was all inclusive so it’s hard to say exactly how much more) My parents aren’t able to contribute much-my mom picked up some decorative stuff for me since I live out of state, but other than small things here and there, it’s just not in their ability right now.
So that being said, I personally do not have a problem putting “Together with their parents” on our invitations to keep it simple (Fiance has divorced/remarried parents, so we’re dealing with 3 sets of parents) But I’m afraid if I do that, his parents will be upset-esp FMIL, and if I put their names on there, my parents will be hurt if they’re not on there.
Trying to find the most minimal wording possible-our invitations are on the smaller side and pretty modern.
Grateful for any and all suggestions!!
