I might be thinking way too much into this… but I don’t want to offend anyone and want to make sure I honor everyone as well. Question: my parents are footing the bill for the wedding. My fiance’s parents are paying for the rehearsal dinner. His mom is also throwing me a shower in PA, while my mom is throwing me one in NY (my home state). So everyone is pretty much contributing to our special day. Is it ok to put all parents’ names on the wedding invites then?

i think it is ok, or you can write “together with our/their families” (depending on if you want a 1st or 3rd person wording), but either way i’d run it by your parents first to make sure they won’t be offended, since it’s bucking tradition a bit. i’d like to write “together with our families” but i’m going to ask my parents how they feel about it before making that decision since they are primarily paying for the wedding.

I would definately put both parents names.

See this is why I love this wedding site most of all. I have a question or concern, come on here, post it… get an answer minutes later. You guys are awesome 🙂 I will definitely talk to my mom. I think she’d be ok with having his parents mentioned as well. She’s not really a credit hog like that. I think she’ll laugh at me more that I’m thinking about this when I still have about a year left to go 🙂 But I can’t help it. We finally got the difficult stuff out of the way, booked the reception hall, the church this week and ordered the save the dates.. now onto the fun stuff. Although I am dreading bridesmaids dresses. Half of my wedding party is in NY, the other half is here in PA. That’s another issue in itself.

I would talk to your parents. My parents are paying & FH’s mom gave us some $ but neither of them wanted to be on the invites.

My parents are paying for the wedding while my fiance’s parents are paying for the rehearsal dinner. we put:
My parents request the honor of your presence at the wedding of their daughter Chibride1204
son of groom’s parents names.
That is the proper way to honor his parents but still be clear that YOUR parents are hosting.
