Due to many years of conflict, : my parents will not be participating in my wedding, but simply coming possibly as guests, if they even make that. Does anyone know how to go about writing invitations for that, even, so that they will not feel dishonored, but simply that the invite will read somewhat normally? 🙂 I’m at a loss!

This website’s wording suggestions helped me find something that worked! I would just not put your family in the invite. Usually their names are included if they’re hosting.

Write the invitations as if you and your FI are the hosts and you are inviting your guests to attend in the celebration!

I have been estranged from my parents for decades, so they will not be involved in anyway. FH’s mom is trying her hardest not to butt in, although she really, really wants to(she’s not helping financially) and his father is completely self-absorbed and doesn’t really care that we are getting married. We will be wording our invitations in a way that indicate that we are hosting the wedding and reception.
Good luck to you, I definitely empathize.

You don’t know how spot on that is, similarly to me! It is so encouraging to know I’m not the only one 🙂 Thank you!

In order to not ruffle feathers, we ultimately decided on the wording “Together with their parents” knowing full well that it meant “Together with HIS parents”.
They still found plenty to be upset about, but they couldn’t blame the invite.
