Why not take out the “daughter of/son of” and just leave your names, and then after your names, put “and their parents, [parents’ names].”

Maybe like:

Please join us

YOUR NAME

and

HIS NAME

together with their parents

PARENTS’ NAMES

for our invites we did this (both my parents are divorced and remarried)

Because you have shared in our lives with your friendship and love, we

your name

and

his name

along with their families invite you to celebrate in their marriage

then listed the rest of the information.

Looked really good when we were done!

Hi, our invites are worded like this:

Jane Doe
&
John Smith
together with their parents:

Mr. & Mrs. Doug Doe
and
Ms. Amy Smith
Invite you to share in love and joy as best friends become husband and wife

 
We are a tad less formal than others, but just an idea! We wanted our parents listed on the invitation, not just as “with families”.

This is what ours look like with the wording: *please disregard my horrible blacking out skills!

@sweetchiquita12:  Its creeping up fast! May I ask how early you are sending out your invitations? I have mine all ready to go in envelopes, but I didn’t want to send them when everyone was mailing Christmas cards out and it get lost. I see people online say 2 months, I think thats a tad too short of notice myself!

@sweetchiquita12:  I LOVE destination weddings, the ones I’ve attended have been nothing but amazing. Thanks for the suggestions! I think I’ll send them out early January 🙂
