- Wedding: May 2015
Our wedding is going to be held at my fiance’s grandparent’s barn and we’re going to have a light brunch reception afterwards at my parent’s home. We are paying for everything for the wedding and reception, but since his grandparents and my parents are providing the locations, I know they should be mentioned on the invitation. I just can’t think of a way that isn’t crazy long winded and too formal as this is going to be a very informal event, but I also don’t want to leave anyone out since they are all being such a great help to us by giving us such beautiful (and free!!) places to host our celebration. I also don’t want to leave out my fiance’s parents, since they’re very important to us as well… How do I include everyone without the invitation being nothing but a long list of names?? I was thinking of having the invite read “together with their families…” but is that too informal? If I do that I know that at the reception we will make an announcement thanking our families for all they have done, will that sufice? No one in our families are dramatic so I know I won’t have to deal with hurt feelings (thank goodness) but I do want to be polite and show how thankful we are.
