Write the invitations as if you and your Fiance are the hosts and you are inviting your guests to attend in the celebration!

I have been estranged from my parents for decades, so they will not be involved in anyway. FH’s mom is trying her hardest not to butt in, although she really, really wants to(she’s not helping financially) and his father is completely self-absorbed and doesn’t really care that we are getting married. We will be wording our invitations in a way that indicate that we are hosting the wedding and reception.

Good luck to you, I definitely empathize.

In order to not ruffle feathers, we ultimately decided on the wording “Together with their parents” knowing full well that it meant “Together with HIS parents”.

They still found plenty to be upset about, but they couldn’t blame the invite.
