- Wedding: May 2011
I still have plenty of time to think about this, but I’m wondering how we should word the invitations.
My FH’s parents are paying for 3/4 of our wedding expenses. FH and I are paying 1/4. My parents might throw in a few hundred dollars toward my dress, but have not committed to anything. We aren’t having a super extravagent wedding or anything, but this contribution-while definitely appreciated!-is sort of a drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things.
So, my question is, under these circumstances, how do we word the invites? Since FI’s parents are contributing so much more than we are, should we do it as if they are the hosts:
“Mr. & Mrs. Smith request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their son, Joe Smith to Susie Brown, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Brown”
Or can I do “together with their parents” (even though my parents aren’t contributing, so it is really together with FH’s parents hehe). I’m concerned that FH and my contribution isn’t enough to say “together with their parents” though.
