@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

Ms. DisneyKb


Mr. DisneyKb’sFI

location details

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:

“My parents”
“His parents”
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

*Bride’s Name*


*Groom’s name*

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.
