- Wedding: July 2012
I am getting ready to order my invitations and have had my mind set for awhile on the wording. But now that I’m looking at it, I realized that I don’t think I’ve ever seen it before and I’m not sure it if makes sense.
My fiance and I are paying for the bulk of the wedding – the reception, photographer, DJ, etc. His parents are paying for additions to the cocktail hour, our honeymoon, limos, and a few other things. My parents are paying for the church, the invites, the favors, flowers, and a dessert table. So although we are putting in the bulk, both sets of our parents are putting in quite a lot as well. Either way, we want to include them all on the invite.
Here’s currently how I have my wording:
Together with their parents
Mr. & Mrs. Bride’s Parents
Mr. & Mrs. Groom’s Parents
Jane Marie Smith
John Robert Jones
request the honor of your presence
as they join together in marriage
I know that on the actual invitation, our names will be in a different font/color so it will stand out. But looking at it like this, there is no real transition from the parents names into our names.
Is there another way to word this that I am not thinking of?
