His parents are paying for probably $1000 more than my parents. We are paying for $6k, his parents are paying 3k and mine are paying for 2k (including my dress)
His parents names go first right? I just dont want my parents to feel bad that they cant help out as much as they would like.

The order of names shouldn’t be based on how much they are paying. It’s the brides parents first. Comes from when the brides parents were the hosts for the wedding, and grooms parents would be listed essentially as an informational line.

Hmm, not 100% sure but in this case I don’t think it matters who’s first. Its not like it was a substantial difference. Can you just write “together with our families..”?

With a difference that minimal, I’d say you’re all the hosts. I’d list yourselves first, followed by your parents, then his, just for the sake of associating each set of parents to the correct person. Like ours:
together with their parents
Dad and mom sapphiresun
and Dad and mom sapphiresun’s fiance
request the honour of your presence/pleasure of your company

@SapphireSun: Crap. I didnt even think about the “together with” part. Is that a big deal if thats not on there? It also makes the invite look cramped with that extra line… hmmm and I just submitted the revision before I read your comment. Ugh, details!

@sheepandbear: It’s just a quick and easy way to say “everybody’s hosting”, but I’m sure there’s other wording that’s just as good.

Hahahaha… we’re paying for the whole darn thing so we didn’t even put our parents on there! 😛

Generally the bride’s parents names r first. Mine will say ‘my parents and his parents (Mr n Mrs so n so of course) request the pleasure of your company….blah blah.’
