Tradition says that you list the one that’s paying ie [your dad] requests the honor of your presence…


However, if you want to include both parents, you could try [your dad] requests the honor of your presence at the wedding of KSbride13 daughter of [your mom]

to [FI] son of [FILs}


It sounds a bit awkward but I can’t think of another way to do it.

Martha Stewart Weddings’ website has a whole host of how to word things depending on who is hosting.  That and Google is your friend.  🙂

Eh, my mom doesn’t give a fuck that I’m getting married. She didn’t even say congratulations (or anything, really). Whatever.

Our invitations don’t list anyone but us. FI’s parents are helping us out, but no idea how much, so we’re just assuming that we’re paying for the bulk of it. As such, our invitations read: “[me] & [FI] are saying I do! He asked, She said yes! Come join us as we make it official!”

Then again, we’re very non-traditional, and I designed our invites. 🙂
