  • Wedding: October 2012

My dad is paying for most of our wedding while we havepaid for a decent chunk too. My mom hasnt because she doesnt have the funds and shes kind of hurt by it. His parents arent paying because we refuse to let them they gave us a large gift for housewarming and paid our downpayment on the house as a gift. This is how we worded it. I asked dad and he was ok with it under the circumstances that and he could care less about ettiquette. Hope it helps a little?

He asked, and she said yes…
or was it the other way around?
However it happened
are getting married
and they ask you to join them
on Saturday, the thirteenth of October
at half past three in the afternoon

@Futuremrsmoleton:  The wording your parents favour is actually the traditional way that invitations were worded.  If your parents are paying for 90% of the wedding, I don’t think that should be a problem.  If you put the groom’s parents names on them and they don’t even attend, that’s going to look a little strange, no? Or am I misinterpreting something?

  • Wedding: November 2012


My fiance’s family is unsupportive too and we don’t know if Mother-In-Law will be there either but we made sure to make the invite neutral just for this purpose:

“It is with joy that we, Sally Bride and Joe Groom invite you to share our happiness as we vow our lives to one another at 3pm on November 3rd, 2012 at Resort & Spa, yada yada yada….”

Instead of putting family on the invite we thanked family in our wedding programs.

Or, you could say ‘together with their families, Sally Bride and Joe Groom invite you…”

Honestly the invite isn’t about thanking your family. It’s about presenting the event to your guests. You will have plenty of opportunity to thank them later. Just my opinion.

You could mention both parents as (daughter of Mr and Mrs Bride) and son of Mr and Mrs Groom
