I just joined today and am in need of some suggestions. I am having a hard time trying to figure out how to word my invitations because I have a lot of people to include on the invite. The wedding is being paid for by me and my fiance, my parents, and his parents. Additionally, we have a daughter together that we want to include on the invite. I have seen invite wording that mentions the wedding and the joining of a family. Any thoughts on how to include all names?
Thanks so much!

What about this?
Together with our parents, please join us
and their daughter
as we are joined in marriage and become a family…
I think that your invitation would look a bit cluttered if you included all of the parents names

I really like NeliBee’s suggestion.
If your parents would feel better with their names on the invitation, just add two lines like:
Together with our parents
Mr. and Mrs. Her Parents
Mr. and Mrs. His Parents
Please join us…
I’d definitely use font and spacing to your advantage with all those names (i.e. make your names bigger and in a fancy font, with more space between the rest of the invitation and your names).

Technically who is paying what doesn’t affect what you put on the invitations. I think it’s nice you want to get everyone on there! I’d stick with the basic info since there are a lot of names and you don’t want it to look cluttered. If you wanted a traditional look, then something like:
Mr and Mrs Bride’s Parents
Mr and Mrs Groom’s Parents
joyfully invite you to join them

Thank you everyone. Those are great suggestions. I really prefer to not put our parent’s names but just need to make sure they are comfortable with that.
