You could put “Together with their parents/families”?

I went very informal with the wording especially since we were hosting it ourselves. I was really happy with how they turned out.

You are INVITED to attend the Wedding of “my name” & “his name”.

The date, time, Address.

Dinner, Drinks and Dancing to follow.

@Koko1977:  I just looked at mine, we did:

Together with their families

DH’s name


My name

request the pleasure of your company at the celebration of their marriage


— now that I read it again I think maybe we should have said ‘our’ familiies and ‘our’ marriage but oh well!

@Koko1977:  We did not include any family in the invite since we are hosting everything ourselves.

I did “together with their families” even though they didn’t pay for much. My dad’s paying for the rehearsal dinner, but that’s it. He wanted to put son of Mr. and Mrs. and I was like, absolutely not. lol We’re pushing 40!

Here’s how ours are worded:

Mr. And Mrs. Anise’s Father’s Name


Dr. And Mrs. Anise’s FFIL’s Name

request the honour of your presence at the marriage of their children . . . . .

it’s fitting because even though we are paying for the wedding, our parents have contributed quite a bit as well.  We generally liked the “Together With” wording, but wanted our parents’ names on the invites. Having their names after our respective names seemed cluttered.
