I'm not sure what to do cos I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings...


My parent's are divorced - father is paying for the wedding well 90% of it.


My FIs parent's are contributing 10% to go towards our rehearsal dinner.


Do i say "together with their parents"




Just list my father? or say Mr and Mrs Anderson (my mother still has the same last name and so does my father's wife)


I feel weird listing FIs parents since my dad is paying for the majority and they didn't really want to contribute in the 1st place - I overheard them saying the parents of the bride normally pay. But then again they are contributing something even if its not much.

I would definitely put "together with their parents" if you're worrying about hurting feelings or feel unsure of how to list them. You could also go the other route and list them all and put


Mr & Mrs John Anderson (your dad & his wife)

Ms Susan Anderson (your mom)


request the honor of your presence at the marriage of your daughter


Your Name


Your Fiance's Name


son of Mr and Mrs Johnson (your FI's parents)



Stating "request the honor of your presence" generally is accepted as a "neutral" way to invite, which could mean they've paid for it or not...

I agree with most of the other posts. No one needs to know who is paying what. We put:


Together with their parents


Autumn blah blah


Brett blah blah


Request the pleasure

of your company

at the celebrations

of their union

    • 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?
