@shwhite:  We put “Together with their families” instead of listing names – my mom is a single mother and did not want her name on the invite either.  We compromised listed the parents on the program that will be handed out at the ceremony.

To list both sets of parents, you could do something like:

Ms. Jane Doe and Mr. John Smith
request the pleasure of your company
at the marriage of their daughter
Mary Smith
Bob Jones
Son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Jones
etc, etc.

You could possibly list all parents together at the top:

Your mom, His dad, His mom invite you to the union of their children…. (break it up into whatever lines you’d need for the names)

@ArtDecoDC:  +1

Are your in-laws contributing to the wedding?? The groom’s parents typically aren’t on the invite anyway. But if they really are hell bent on it, then I like ArtDecoDC’s suggestion.

My fiancee and I just decided to put “together with our parents”. There were just to many variables for us. Her parents are divorced. My mother is remarried. So it was just alot easier to NOT put names.

Good point made by  jny1179 are both sets of parents paying….if the grooms parents are contributing their names shouldn’t be on there…


Remember its your day and the most important names that should be on there are YOURS and YOUR FIANCEES!
