I am just curious as to whos names go on the invite. So far, FI and I only put our names on the invite but my mom has stated she will be giving some money for the wedding. My mom is single/ divorced. And FI’s fam refuses to recognize our union..(long story). So the question is… do I put my mom’s name on the invite because she says she will be paying for some stuff..do I put FI’s parents and my mom because it would be nice of me, or do I just put FI’s and my name because we are the only ones that have paid thus far? thanks bees!

Just put your names. It’s the simpliest thing and if anyone (your mom) comments on it just say you didn’t know and it’s too late because the invites have been printed.

i put “together with their families so and so and so and so invite you ….” but maybe just your names would be best given your situation 🙂

It depends on who is the host of the event. If you are the hosts then you would list yourselves. If your mom is jointly hosting (which is more then just giving $), then list her as well.
Together with their families may not be correct in this case as it really is only with your family, if his parents are against the union.

Is your dad out of the picture as well?
I would say just leave it as you and your FI hosting the event. Leave both families off.
Whatever you do, don’t put his family or ‘together with their families’ since his family isn’t recognizing your marriage.

my father is out of the picture as well. I feel like my mom will be partially hosting the wedding as well seeing that there will be a lot of family there.

If your mother is okay, you can go with a contemporary style, which says “you’re invited to the wedding celebration as A and B are uniting together as husband and wife…”

@okdole: we want to keep it pretty formal as we have opted to have a black tie event. We could just keep our names…
