I don’t think there’s a compromise here. You either put parents names or not. However, you can put them afterwards if you would like.

“love lasts a lifetime and that lifetime begins today when we, <your names>, join in marriage together with our parents <their names>”

You could write together with their parents if you want to compromise. But, since you and your FI are hosting it, I don’t really think that should be on there because it implies they helped pay for the wedding,

i agree that if you are paying for it, you aren’t obligated to put parent names on the invite. maybe you could compromise with “together with our families, miss pomeranian and mr. pomeranian invite you….”

Our invites is going to say something along the lines of with their families.  Instead of saying parents or naming people.  I say you should do something like this or rock paper scissors over it.  Or we have said I will give you this one thing if I get 100% control over this other issue.  Good luck!

we used “together with our parents” even though it’s our 2 sets of parents who paid for the wedding. none of the parent cared about how it’s traditionally done, and we chose it this way so that it’d be less wordy on our invitation.

@Miss Pomeranian: glad to hear he came around!

I like the idea of saying along with thier families, don’t list the names (cuts down on the too many words) but can impy that whoever you consider to be “family” is included…

Since you are paying for it, I would put,

love lasts a lifetime and that lifetime begins today when we, (your names), join in marriage together with our families….

They can be listed in the program.
