Paying own Wedding / Invitations

Recommended Posts

My FI and I are paying for our wedding completely ourselves. Should the formal invitations still list both of our parents (who will be in attendance) as the one's requesting our guests to come?

 

I'm assuming we just have some type of invitiation saying we request their presence but didn't know what others experience has been.

We are paying for our wedding this is how we worded ours:

 

Together with their families

Janine X

and

Christopher Y

request the honour of your presence

at the celebration of their marriage

Saturday the thirteenth of November

Two Thousand and Ten

At four o'clock in the afternoon

 

The Somerset on Grace Bay

Princess Drive

Providenciales, Turks & Caicos

 

Hope this helps. I will try to post a link to a site that has wording suggestions depending on the type of wedding etc.

Very similar to Janine's:

 

Tracy Ann x

and

George Vincent x

request the honor of your presence

at their marriage

on Friday, the sixteenth of July

Two thousand ten

at five o'clock

Paradisus Palma Real

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

 

My mom was with me when we chose our invitations and she agreed completely that our parents' names didn't need to be included since they are not paying for our wedding.

mine was similar to this...i didn't mention my parents or family at all. it's us that want them there and are making that request.

we are not including neither of our parents on our invites...we are 100% paying for our wedding ourselves. but we are doing a special acknowledgement to our parents during our ceremony and our ceremony programs will have a special thank you note dedicated to them.

We're paying for it ourselves also( glad to see that we're not alone). I wanted to choose wording that acknowledges both sets of parents anyway so this is what we did:

 

 

Bride

Daughter of Mr.and Mrs. X

And

Groom

Son of Mr. and Mrs. X

 

invite you to share in the joy

when they exchange

marriage vows

and begin their new life together

I just found out about this yesterday. I hadn't even thought about it. I think ours will say we're inviting our guests and we will mention our parents in the programs.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
