    @confusedandannoyed:  Ettiquette is just a suggestion. But if you want to follow ettiquette, then you do not need to put her on there, since she is not helping pay. But, if you just want to be a good daughter-in-law, regardless of whethere she pays or not, then you put her on there. I think it has more to do with you and your FI’s relationship with her more than anything else. If you are close with her, and want to acknowledge her presence in your relationship no matter what, then do so. If not, don’t. This is 100% up to you two.

    @confusedandannoyed:  I’m putting the parents names down as there are some people who might not catch on immediately who we are without our parents names. I also like that is sounds fancy. My parents are paying about 20% and FH’s parents are paying the rehersal dinner, we are paying the rest. My parents and I all have different last names. So we worded it:

    Mary Grenich and Dustin Shauffer

    invite you to the marriage of their daughter

    Nicole Sally Falafel 


    Mitch Jay Pennington

    son of 

    Gail and George Pennington
