Invite wording when couples pay
Posted 18 January 2009 - 05:38 AM
Since we are paying for the wedding and we both have been out of our family's homes for over 10 years - is it correct etiquette to leave our parents out or should we just include them so no feelings are hurt
Just wondering how other ppl handled this...

Therefore the invitations have come from us no mention of parents. My dad isn't bothered at all (he's not coming to the wedding) and mum died years ago and if i am truly honest i don't give a crap about whether his lot are hurt or not lol
Again its for you to decide what YOU want, sod tradition its about you and FI

But my other question, my FI's mother passed away years ago - it is still correct to write "together with their parents" right

I thought I would share what I borrowed from my parents wedding invite, it was appropriate for a DW.
"We invite you to witness their vows. If you are unable to attend we ask your presence in thought...."

We are paying for the wedding ourselves and we didn't feel the need to put FI's mother or my father on there; and neither of them should be offended. My understanding has always been that the parents are on there if they are paying or helping to pay for the wedding.
That being said, if you want to include your parents; I am sure that they will be touched.

Your pressence is requested at the marriage of, blah blah blah
All sets of parents were pleasantly happy with that wording.
