We are paying for our wedding ourselves, but I still feel like referencing our families in the invitations might be a nice gesture.
Can I say something like, “Together with our families…” without it having to imply that they’re helping us pay for the wedding? Does it matter if that’s implied even if it isn’t true?
Just wondering what people think.

I put “Together with their families” on mine. We are getting a little help from our families, but I would have put it on the invites anyways. I think it is a nice gesture to honoring all the ‘other’ support they have given you.

Personally I always thought using invitation wording to imply financial contribution is out dated, and frankly totally irrelevant. Its really nobodys business who paid IMO. THat being said, all parents are contributing to ours but we put together with their parents, because we are adults inviting people to our own wedding, as well as our parents. They aren’t having this wedding for us. And I like it being a family invitation.

I believe it would be something like:
Daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Smith and
Son of Mr. & Mrs. Doe
Request the pleasure of your company

@Americano: I think it’s really weird to have the names and then the respective son & daughter of lines separated out like that, but I like the general idea. I’d just move “daughter of” above the “and” and use different fonts for the names of the bride and groom.
@MsJ2theZ: Contrary to this, I do believe it’s appropriate. It’s not just about who’s paying; it’s about who is hosting. Guests should know, and have a right to know, who is hosting them and whom to thank.

@mrsSonthebeach: My response would be that we are all hosting as a family, and we all agreed on the wording.
