- Wedding: November 2015
The time has come to order our wedding invitations and we are not agreeing on the wording.
I originally designed the wording to say
(Brides parents) would like the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter (Bride) to (Groom)
When my FI saw this he said he would like his mother’s name on there as well. His father totally ouT of the picture as in not invited to the wedding so he is not being included. His mom has been a total and complete nightmare since the day we got engaged to the degree of telling us we are being cheap because we didnt plan on having our limo (reception/ceremony is in a hotel therefore we do not need one) to making comments that we are havin a friday wedding. She criticised my wedding dress budget IN FRONT of my entire bridal party and mom because I was stupid enough to bring her dress shopping (I wanted to be nice and include her). Well since then his mother is basically banned from knowing any wedding plans (by FI), I no longer speak to her. We also found out she lied to his side of the family telling them she is paying for our wedding. Which brings me to my next point, she is not contributing ANYTHING financially. She didnt even get us a card with “congrats I am happy for you” for our engagement party.
So I do not want to give her credit by putting her on the invitation. Since it is important to FI, I am thinking of wording it like this:
(Brides parents) would like the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter (Bride to (Groom) song of (Brides Mom)
But will it be strange that it’s only his moms name?
