Ok I just realized something on my invites (that have already been proofed and ordered) that may not be right. My father has passed, and my mother is footing the bill, but I felt like all wording with their names was awkward. so my wording is this:
together with their parents,
request the pleasure of your company
is this stupid? like it should have actually mentioned the parents names first? oh gawd……..

My invitations were worded similarly – Me and FI are paying most of the bill, his parents gave us a little bit of money and my parents gave a bit too.
FI & 7SEVENJ9, together with their parents, request the pleasure of your company…
I think it sounds fine!

That’s how my invites were…I didn’t want to list all of our parents individually and I liked it better that way. I think they will be just fine, no worries!

It looks fine… we did something similar (..with their families, blah blah blah) but I’m curious, has your mom seen the invites? If she is footing the bill, she may be insulted a bit that she wasn’t specifically mentioned as the person inviting folks to the wedding. I think that is where the tradition of listing the bride’s parents inviting to the wedding of girl and boy, son of grooms parents comes from – because typically brides parents paid for the wedding – so it was to honor them.

We did the same thing even though my father is paying for 98% of our wedding the other parents gave what they could and I wanted everyone to feel special and included.

I think the wording is fine – but, if your mom is footing the bill – you might want to see if 1) you can stop the printing and 2) that she’s ok with it. The last thing you want is for your mom to get upset about how it’s worded. But – if she’s ok with it – it’s perfect. The only person that will really notice will likely be your mom (which is why I say ask her).

We did “together with their families”…but same difference. No worries, it’s fine!
