- Wedding: May 2013
Okay, so here’s the deal. My parents are not paying for any part of my wedding, so far. My sister and her Boyfriend or Best Friend have offered us $3000 for food cost, Fiance and I are paying for venue and decorations, Future Mother-In-Law is partially paying for food, rehearsal dinner, flowers and a few other things. How do I word the invitations? I don’t want to leave my parents out even though they are not contributing financially. Their (my mother’s) reasoning is that her and my dad didn’t have a “wedding” they were married after the 3 of us were born and were married in a small church with just the 5 of us. My mother thinks weddings are a waste of money, that we should just elope. None of this has been said in a mean demeaning way, just her opinion, which is fine and she has been very helpful in picking ideas and accessories and such. She hasn’t said she’s not helping financially but has had ample time and opportunity to say she is so I’m just assuming they aren’t helping. How do I word the invite to not upset anyone, I wish there was a way to include my sister and her Boyfriend or Best Friend but just don’t see how?
Myabe do just some generic type wording like.. We request the honor of your presence in our celebration as we unite as husband as wife?
