    I definitely think you could go either way, but I voted not to include the groom’s parents’ info. If you’re putting ceremony and reception both on the main invitation, it would be good to streamline everything else so the invitation doesn’t appear too cluttered. And if there’s a worry that they want to be “credited” somewhere, they can definitely be named as hosts on the invitations for the rehearsal dinner.

    Regarding addresses, I would say that if all of your guests are local and are familiar with both the ceremony and reception locations, you could probably get away without including the addresses. Otherwise, it would be helpful to include them. Maybe put the info on a separate “Directions” enclosure, if you don’t want it on the main invitation?

    I think it’s always a nice gesture to put the groom’s parents on the invite, regardless of how much they’re paying/not paying. Have his parents expressed any opinion on the matter?

    I think it is a nice gesture to include the grooms parents.

    I’m in the same situation. My parents, Fiance and I are paying for the wedding. Future Father-In-Law paying for the rehearsal dinner and plane tickets for our honeymoon.

    I think I might use

    Together with their parents

    Sandra ….



    request the honour of your presence

    at their wedding

    Something like that. What did you decide???

    I see that the votes are 50/50.

    Haha! I love being the tie breaker!  🙂

    I like the idea of including his parents.

    haha. I think it’s special to include all parents but it makes the invitation too long…. I think it’s even etiquette to include all parents if they are all helping. But I mean if the parents are hosting the actual wedding. And you have the future in laws paying the honey moon and rehearsal dinner which traditionally they should be paying. That’s when it gets tricky.
