We just did “Together with thier families” and skipped all the names (except ours of course!). It was the easiest option. And my parents who paid for the entire wedding didn’t mind at all that thier names weren’t on the invites.

We did together with their families as well. Easiest way to cover everyone

Like PPs have said, we used “together with their parents/families” which seemed to cover everyone (DH’s father is deceased and my parents are separated; my dad is remarried whilst my mum is single).

If your fiancé’s mom and stepdad are the only ones hosting the wedding, then only include their names, that’s generally why parents are listed on the invitation. However, if you really want to include everyone, then I agree with “together with their families”. 🙂

Another vote for “together with their families”; I think it sounds welcoming and includes everyone. I put my parents’ names on our invitation because – I wanted to and – they are paying for a large portion of the wedding, and I believe etiquette says you should name those hosting.

As a parent…………….please discuss this with those who are contributing.  At least give them a chance to voice an opinion before springing your decision on them.  Some don’t care but others are deeply hurt.  Just be sure you aren’t hurting feelings without even knowing it.
