- Wedding: September 2012
So my fiance and I are extremely lucky and our parents are footing the majority of the wedding bill(s). I’m talking over $20,000 being handed to us. We are contributing a couple thousand ourselves on top of that. His parents are still married and VERY traditional (his mother refused to decide on a dress length until my mother decided on her’s b/c it’s apparently tradition for the Groom’s mother to follow the Bride’s mother). However, my parents are divorced and only my father is remarried. Although everyone can stand each other, they only do so if they have to. Is it absolutely critical that we include their names on the invitations? Or can we do something along the lines of:
“The parents of
Bride and Groom
request the honor of your presence…
I sort of feel that that will be insulting to them?
