Anyone have any suggestions? My dad is helping us out financially - my mom has absolutely no money and they're not on the best of terms. Should we word the invites not to include parents at all? I don't want my dad to feel slighted but I am afraid that mentioning him would hurt my mom...

I just went with "together with out parents name & name would like to ..."

 

I talked to our parents before & asked if that was fine to leave their names off the invites. I gets so tricky with divorced parents.

Both our parents are divorced.. and all have individually helped us out financially. I think we are going to go with "together with their parents"

I worded the announcements with my parents names too close together and they had issues with it. I want to be respectful, but I think divorced parents also need to just suck it up a little. I would probably ask my parents what they wanted if you're not sure. I actually did ask them and they didn't know how I should word it, so we picked what I thought was respectful and they still had issue. You can't always win.

my parents are not financially helping at all, and i have no relationship with my mom. my FI's generous parents are paying for everything, but its tradition in mexico to but both sets of parents names on the invitation, no matter who is paying. so our invitations in spanish say his parents' names and my dad and stepmom's names. our invites in english are going to people in my mom's side of the family, and for that reason, we decided to use "together with their parents"

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
