I’ve seen some invitations that include the names of the groom’s parents after the name of the groom (e.g., “son of Mr. and Mrs. Bob Smith), and some that do not. When the bride’s parents are hosting, what is correct? Is it just preference or is there one wording which is more appropriate than the other? Thanks!

I think the right way is to list only who’s hosting the wedding, so just the bride’s parents. In my situation, everyone’s pitching in so we’re say “together with their parents…”. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with breaking tradition to recognize everyone, if you want.

My parents thought it would be nice to include them, even though my parents are hosting. My parents are separated so are each listed first & last name. When Fmil saw the invite she was upset she wasnt listed by first name, it was son of mr. And mrs. X. I was surprised she had the gall to say that. I even said to her, well the only reason my parents are listed separate is because they are not together. Some people you just can’t please.

It’s probably proper to only list the parents that are hosting but we acknowledged both. We listed my parents names, our names, followed by Son of Mr. and Mrs. HisParents Names. his parents are kinda touchy and I didn’t want to hurt his moms feelings, she’s too sweet!
