    Since your wedding is more on the formal side, I would do full parents names.

    asobos :  We are doing “together with their families”. We didnt want to have to list out full names (FI’s Mom and Dad are divorced, mom is deceased, and my dad isnt in the picture) but also wanted to acknowledge the help and financial contributions of our whole families.

    We’re having a super formal wedding and split the cost 3 ways with each set of parents.

    We chose to say all full names. We also got each guest name individually printed .



    Together with their parents First and First and Last and First and first and last

    Warmly request the pleasure of the company of _______________________

    to share in their special day as they become husband and wife.

    asobos :  well, who is hosting the wedding? You said all three of you are paying, but are all three hosts? The invitation lists the hosts, not the financial backers. 

    Since this is a formal event, the names of all those hosting should be written out. So no to “together with their parents/families” (which would be suitable for a more casual affair. 

    If the two sets of parents are the hosts (but not you) then go with option 2. However, if you are also hosting along with the sets of parents, it should read:

    Together with

    brides parents 

    and grooms parents,

    bride and groom

    requesy blah blah blah.

    this way, you are included as hosts.

    asobos :  well hosting duties typically including planning the party, inviting guests, greeting guests and making sure they’re attended to, thanking guests for coming, and yes – also paying (but the point here being that it’s more than just writing the checks). 

    Who has been planning the wedding? Who has created the guest list?

    asobos :  no problem (: So it sounds like you’re all hosts, so make sure the invitation reflects that you’re hosting as well as the parents (:
