This is probably not etiguette proper at all, but for my invites I simply Put “bride and groom invite you to their wedding” 

My reason were because of divorced parents on both sides and i didnt like the “along with their families” line

From an Etiquette point of view, the Invitations are issued by the person(s) who are acting as the Hosts of the event (Ceremony & Reception).

In your Daughter’s Particular situation that would be You and your Hubby.  So yes the traditional…

Mr. & Mrs. ___

request the honour of your presence

at the marriage of their daughter

Cassie Ann


Mr. Kenneth William Finn


Alternatively, the invites could come out from the couple (but that would imply that they are paying by themselves, and that you the Brides Parents chose not to chip in, or not substantially)… so maybe you don’t want to go that route

The honour of your presence

is requested

at the marriage of

Miss Dawn Ciccone


Mr. Michael Garvey


Truly the right way would be the traditonal route, and it would be perfectly lovely (and appropriate) if the Bride at some point during the Speaches, stands and publicly thanks the AMAZING Grand Parents who helped make her day so special thru their LOVE, support and contributions.

Likewise, when doing the Flowers she should ensure that each of them receive the appropriate flowers (bouts & corsages)… and that they should be HONOURED GUESTS who are seated late in the game (just prior to the Mothers) at the Ceremony.

Hope this helps,
