I need a little advice…My fiance and I are paying for our wedding. My mother paid for part of my dress and my finace’s parents are paying for the rehearsal dinner and half of the honeymoon.
Do I include them on the invitation?
I saw this somewhere and really like it, “To the delight of their families Bride and Groom invite you to join in the celebration of their marriage”

We have a few small contributions being made by various family members to our wedding events, and even if they were paying for my whole wedding, I would still be choosing to say ” together with their families, “

I agree that “Together with their families” works without anyone’s feelings being hurt.

@Veda137: We included both and it is causing confusion. My FI’s parents feel that my parents are the hosts and should be the only one listed. My parents think we are the hosts because we are paying. I don’t care. I just want everyone to be happy and are putting both sets of people who want the big wedding onn the invitation.

My parents paid for most of my wedding. We paid for the photographer and a third of the band, as well as some incidentals. My inlaws paid for the personal flowers and the rehearsal dinner. The invitation only had my parents’ names as the hosts. There were no hard feelings.
