So my parents are giving us money towards the wedding but not paying for the whole thing. I know typically if the parents pay you put them in the invite. So would I just leave them out and just put our names ? My family isn’t to traditional and no one would care or probably even notice. Lol but what do you think is the best thing to do?

@DisneyKb: You can do whatever you want. If your parents have a lot of people on the guestlist, you might want to include them on the invitation. But if nobody cares it doesn’t really matter.
If you don’t include parents, you can do something like this:
The pleasure of your company is requested
at the marriage of

I think it’s more of a preference. My parents are paying for some, his parents are paying for some, and we’re paying for some so ours say:
request the honour of your presence at the marriage
of their children
Honestly, even if we were paying for the whole thing, I would still word it that way. I definitely think thereare standard rules but rules are meant to be bent 😉

We also used
“together with their families”
More specifically, ours said;
Together with their families
invite you to the celebration….blah blah blah
I’ve also seen the couples’ names first, followed by “together with their families. I think its a nice compromise and it honors both families.
