- Wedding: October 2012
I’m ready to order my wedding invitations, and my fiance and I had our wording all set
Our wedding is a group effort, our parents are splitting the cost of the reception and my fiance and I will pay for everything else.. All in all each group is paying 1/3 of the total wedding cost. about $5000.
Together with their parents
request the honor of your presence
at their wedding
Well, when we asked his mom to check over the spelling, right before we placed the order. She was very offended that it didn’t have the formal writing. Something more like this…
Mr. and Mrs. my mom and step dad
and Mr. My real dad
The parent’s of
Ms. My name
Request the honor of your presence
at the marraige of their daughter to
Son of Mr. and Mrs. Fiance’s Parent’s
This has caused quite the dilemma. Fiance isn’t really particular about the invites, he feels as if they are not that important, and no one will care about the wording so if Im happy he’s happy.
I prefer the short and simple wording of number 1. I feel as if the wedding is a group effort and dont wan’t anyone to be left out. Without having the awkwardness of mentioning my mom and step dad, and then my dad
And my Mother-In-Law thinks there is no other option other than number 2. She even mentioned leaving my step dad out ((I was offended about this because he chipped in his $4000 tax return and has supported me since I was five))
Bee’s I really need your help, Our entire wedding has been pretty smooth, and this has us stressed to the max, and its only invites! Any advice, suggestions would be very helpful.
