My parents are divorced, neither of them are contributing and they are both walking down the aisle with me. We decided to keep it simple and said “We invite you to share a day of happiness as we begin a life of love” and then gave the wedding details. I don’t know how formal your wedding is (ours is destination) but I don’t think there is any need to mention people individually, especially when they are not paying for it. It’s your wedding.

Not everyone is contributing to ours but they contributed to us being us, so we decided on:




together with their parents

request the honor of your presence  . . .

We have our parents’ names in there, but you can also leave them out to simplify things.

Both set of parents are divorced. And although my fiance and I are paying for most of the wedding we decided on our wording to use our names and “together with our families”  or “together with our parents” it’s a great way to include the family but not list out names.
