Address Line 2

FYI, my father is not involved in my life. FI and I are paying for the majority of the wedding, but both families offered to help. The ceremony site is an old building that was a Catholic church, but is now a recording studio/concert hall. The officiant is a family friend, so I didn't think "request the honor of your presence" was appropriate. I also don't know if any of the above should be capitalized. Feedback is appreciated.

    I think its suppose to be two thousand twelve.  The Paper and invite board is good with kinda critique. My dads not involved in mine either.  I think we might just do "together with parents" but not list all the names out, but i have to make sure it wont offend FI parents.

    That's how we did our wording! We have a few difference then you, but we said with our parents! My parents are no longer married and didn't want the wording to make it sound like they were married.

    I'm struggling with my wording because FI's Dad is single, and Mom is remarried and not a huge part of FI's life (also struggling with whether they should dance or not for same reason)...

    That being said I like your wording and I've seen it "two thousand and twelve" and "two thousand twelve".. Maybe look online and see if there is a guideline?

    Thanks for the help. I tried to go off of a few wedding invites we've received, but they were all quite different. I didn't realize that there were so many ways to word invites.

    we haven't printed our invitations yet but we are going to say something along the lines of "Together with their parents".. we are not including our parents names because my parents are divorced, my mom went back to her maiden name and I think it would look too "busy" on the invite.
