Thanks you guys, that is very, very helpful. I really like the idea of “Bride, daughter of and groom, son of, request your presence…”
I think I’ll do that.

My parents have paid for pretty much everything for the wedding so I asked if they wanted to be on the invites and she said no that she would rather not have her name on the invites. So we just had it say Grooms Name and Brides Name request the honor of your presence………… I’m glad I asked becuase I would have put my parents on the invite if I hadn’t!

Even though we’re paying for it we decided to reduce drama (my parents are divorced) we just said Together with their families bride and groom invite you….

I’m paying for the bulk of the wedding, and Fiance is helping with the rest, so I decided to go with something along the lines of (Haven’t finished invites yet):
Soontobcj & CJ request the honor of your presence to celebrate their marriage
My mother has seen it and is totally fine with the wording… I’m sure his mother will have something to say when she sees them (she usually does), but I like it this way. 🙂

My parents are contributing about 1/2 of the wedding budget or 1/3 of the “total” wedding budget (if you include rings, honeymoon, rehearsal dinner). We are doing the mom and dad request thing…. my parents were actually surprised at that but we’re so grateful for their help that we really wanted to honor them. I don’t mind if people assume they are paying, it is not important to me that people know who paid for what.
