I believe that is the proper way to word it if your parents are paying, and his not at all. If you’re worried about offending them, the only way to know is to run it by them!

If I were FH parents I might get a little offended I guess, if they were going to be sent to my side of the family. Its sort of showing everyone who paid for the wedding. Does it have to be from you parents? Could it just be from the two of you? If not maybe word it like ‘invite you to join us in the union of ….’ rather than put Their daughter?

It is fine.  What you have stated is pure fact Son of…….How can they be offended by that?

I don’t think it at all flaunts who is paying, or even says at all who is.

Is there any other wording that you could maybe use instead? I think it sounds fine, but if you aren’t sure then maybe another way would be better.

We put “Together with their parents, A and B invite you to share in their joy at their wedding…” since we all ended up paying for some of it. We also ran it by both of our sets of parents and had them approve of it. They both had some minor irks with the final version, but there is really only so much you can do
