Ok, looking for etiquette advice on how to address invites for the following:
My FI and I are the only ones paying for the wedding but our mothers cried after we told them (they asked...) they wouldn't be included in the invite text. Before anyone gets too excited or says "It's your wedding and they're not paying for it, do what you want!"- I want to not hear about this for the rest of our lives so I made the compromise to include them. Then, my father (divorced from my mom and neither remarried) died suddenly and unexpectedly in November so I would like some way to include him on the invite as well.
Maybe I'm just getting myself stressed out but it seems like the wording is getting very complicated. Any suggestions?
