    We're finishing up the wording on our boarding pass invites & I am curious if anyone mentioned the brides parents on the main page of the invite. For example:
    Mr. & Mrs. "Doe" invite you to witness the joining of their daughter, Susan "Doe" to Brad "Smith.......

    Since my parents are paying for the ceremony & reception I feel that the wordign should include them, but I don't want to clutter the boarding pass. If anyone else worded theirs this way, I would appreciate if you could post your verbiage.

      We have been struggling w/ this as well... I currently have 2 front pages that I am debating about. The first is the "Now Boarding" pass that alot of people have - that list our names, the date, and location stuff. Then I have another one that says something like " Mr & Mrs. Doe and Mr. & Mrs. Johnson invite you to share in the marriage of their children, Sean & Becky,..."

      But I feel redundant using both... and can't decide which one I want. I feel like since I'm using the BP as my actual invite I should include the parent bit... but I like the "Now Boarding" as the cover to get the idea across.

        I didnt because they arent going and didnt pay for a thing. But I think you should put it on yours.

          I'm using both of our parents' names. If they're paying, it's only fair to include the,. I'm playing with the wording below. It's a bit more formal than most have chosen, but I like it.

          This day I will marry my best friend,
          The one I laugh with, live for, love.

          Kristin Irene,
          daughter of Robert & Beverly M_____,
          and
          Anthony Christopher,
          son of George & Kathy A____,
          invite you to share with us a celebration of love.
          The ceremony will be held at four-thirty in the afternoon
          on May twenty-third, two thousand nine
          at Pigeon Island on Saint Lucia.

            Here's a boarding pass layout I did for someone recently that might help you:

            Where they had "together with our parents" you could put "together with our parents, Mr. & Mrs. John Smith" or whatever...

              Sarah I see that it says passenger receipt 2 of 4... did they have a front cover or some sort as well?

              I like the traditional "Now Boarding" pass that looks more like a boarding pass - but was worried that too much of the info on these sheets would overlap. But I guess now that I think about it, on that front pass there isn't that much actual wedding details. So maybe I'm worrying for nothing.

                      I think this is the perfecr compromise to include parents in your boarding pass invite! Its suttle but they are still included.
