alright so I will be ordering our invitations today..
Our lady sent us a proof and just wanted some clarity.
Both, FI and I as well as our parents will be paying for the wedding FI and I will be coming up with the bulk. So, for the invitation so far it is worded like so..
Mr. and Mrs. my parents
Mr. and Mrs. his parents
Request the honor of your presence at the wedding of their children
My First Name (i have no middle name)
His First and Middle Name
here’s my question.. Should the invitation have FI and I’s last names? or because our parents names have already been listed we don’t need it.
Also.. my wedding is 12/7 I wanted the reply deadline to be 11/1.. is that way too early? Should I just put it to 11/10?

why don’t you say:
Together with their parents
Ms. Bride Name
Mr. Groom Name
request the honor of your presence
at their marriage…
you typically want the RSVP dealine to be 2-3 weeks before final numbers are due to the caterer so you can call anyone that hasn’t RSVPed.

I didn’t have FH’s parents listed because they did not contribute. I also did not list my last name. I did
Mr. & Mrs. My Parents request the honour of your presence at the marriage of their daughter
Landon MiddleName LastName
I’m not sure what to write if you yourselves are also hosting.

You don’t need to put your last names since they were already mentioned. I don’t think that’s way too early, it’s a little early but if you have a large guest list and may need to track many people down I think it’s reasonable.

For the RSVP date, find the day you need to have the number to your venue/caterers then go back 10 or so days. That should give you time to track down any non-responders.

@ajillity81: I did something like this. We’re paying for the bulk with a little help from FI’s parents. I still don’t “get” the hosting thing–I guess we’re the hosts? IDK, I planned the damn thing. Basically, I had our names really big at the top in script and then a quote from The Princess Bride, then our full names and something like “along with their families, invite you to celebrate the beginning of their adventures together.”
