I would leave them in, just because I like having both sets of parents on the invite.

I would ask your FI’s parents if they’re ok with it, but I also would think it’s fine so long as they aren’t offended because I like having both names on the invite 😉

are you including his parents names on the invites for the wedding that your parents are hosting? If so, I think you can include your parents name on this one. Just make it equal

you can have both, it’s not just who is paying techincally.  In fact if you have to make two sets for two parties, I’d just make it equal for both invitations.

Mr. and Mrs. John L. X &
Mr. and Mrs. Mark T
request the honor of your presence
at the marriage of their children
Heather Marie

I would actually do it more like this:

Mr and Mrs Father-In-Law

request the honor of your presence and the marriage of their son,




daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Pbhatta’s parents.


I don’t think there’s anything incorrect in including your parent’s names, and it’s clear from the invitation that your Future In-Laws are the hosts. Keeping the family groupings together, with their son’s name following theirs feels right to me. It just seems weird when yours comes first.

I’d double check with your FI’s parents about it, but that does sound fine, and indicate that his parents paid for the wedding, but you are still honoring yours.
