The only reason parents are mentioned on an invite is becaus they’re hosting (paying for) an event.  If there’s no invitation, and you’re sending the annoucement out on your own behalf, you wouldn’t mention them.

If you really wanted to include them, I’d do them as if your parents are sending the announcement.  Mr and Mrs. JONES and Mr and Mrs. SMITH are happy to announce the marriage of their children on 2013-15-17… kind of thing.

@AllieBee12:  How about saying:

 Allibee and AllibeeFi along with their parents (families) (could insert names here) are happy (excited, etc) to announce that we are married.

The ceremony was held ….

We would love to share our photos, the can be found at…

I agree, there’s no need to put your parents names on their since they aren’t hosting anything. You could just say:





Were married on

If you do go with something like your original idea, it should be “their” and not “our”. Stick with third person since you are using your proper names.

Since both parents are paying, I would do it like a traditional invitation and use their names.
