Wording Your Wedding Invitations When The Bride’S Parents Are Footing The Bill

Some of the most common wedding invitation etiquette questions we receive revolve around how to word wedding invitations. And for good reason – the way you word you invite doesn’t just tell your wedding guests where to be and when.

How to Word Your Wedding Invitations – Bride's Parents Inviting

ASK YOURSELF WHO’S HOSTING

Deciding how to word your wedding invitations always begins with one question: who’s hosting the wedding?

The host of your wedding is typically the person or people paying for the majority of the celebration. More and more commonly, the couple themselves are paying for their own wedding. But traditionally, the bride’s parents pay for the wedding and therefore, get the honor of doing the inviting.

Here we’ve listed a variety of invitation wording ideas written for weddings hosted by the bride’s parents. Remember though, if both parents are financially contributing to your wedding, you’ll want to include everyone.

Before you get started, we have one tip. When writing wedding invitation wording from the bride’s parents, pay attention to first and last names. Since the bride’s parents’ first names and last name are mentioned, only the bride’s first and middle name should appear on the invitation. However, the groom’s first, middle and last names should be included. These rules may vary with divorced or remarried parents.
