My grandparents asked if I was doing this and I was so confused. I thought the parents names were included if they paid for or planned the wedding and did the invitations themselves because they are throwing the party. I didn’t want to put my moms name on my wedding invites when she didn’t help pay or plan or organize anything and give her credit for our hard work.

I am having a destination wedding and my parents are paying for a majority of the ceremony/reception stuff but not for everything. We put them on the invitation. My FI’s mom didn’t contribute a dime so she ain’t on there.

No, since you are paying, you do not have to put their names.

My Brother-In-Law and SIL did…We didn’t even do invitations so I said no (DW, we just communicated via email…lol).

No. FI’s parents are helping us, but our names only are on the invitation. I don’t want to just put FI’s parents’ (mom, dad, stepmom) on there (BRIDE and GROOM together with GROOM’S PARENTS), nor put “together with their parents,” because that implies that my mother was involved.
Our invitations are also really informal/non-traditional.

Bride’s parents are paying for the entire wedding, so their names are on the invitation, as hosts. Groom’s parents are hosting the rehearsal dinner (picnic), so they will issue the invitations for that.
