Mine is the standard "Together with their Parents"  ,  However,  I added a little quote on the bottom ,


I stole part of it from the "Today I marry my friend"  poem


Our theme is music so I wanted the invitation to tie into the theme so at the bottom of the invite it reads


"The Song I can't get out of my head"


"The One I Dream With, Laugh With, Love.

I think that we are putting:


Mr. and Mrs. (Brides parents).... blah blah blah.... to attend the marriage of their daughter Brittani R. and Edgar C. the son of (Groom's mom)


Because I don't want his mom to feel left out BUT my parents are paying for it....

What if the brides parents are helping financially more than the grooms, but the bride and groom are also paying for more than 50% of it?

We did "Together with their parents"... even though we are paying for about 80% and one side is paying more etc... we just didn't feel it was fair to honour or not honour our parents based on their financial contribution... they don't love us any less... but one side is much more well off than the other!


Not to mention my side is a mess with divorce so we went with the option we did for that sake as well.

Ours starts out :


"A friendship that was shared by two


Has turned into a love so true"


Then its got mine and FI's info since we are hosting the wedding.  Kind of sugary, but it is true, we were friends first then fell in love :)

Not sure what we're doing exactly, but it won't include the parents (I don't talk to mine anymore).

My invites start off with: Whether yellow, orange, brown or gold, the colors of fall never grow old.  This is a reflection of their love ever changing, yet everlasting... Then our Info since we are hosting the wedding.  We love autumn so we found it appropriate to add to the invites.  you could see a sample of my invites in my site.

Mine said both my parents and FI's parents's names.  I felt it was important to honor them in that way as they are very important to this wedding even happening.

We are paying for the wedding ourselves and his family is split so ours will read...Together with the blessing of their parents....


As far as utilizing their names to honor them, that's where the program comes in handy. That is where we wiill say who is who.
