Because you have shared in
our lives by your friendship and love, we
together with our parents
invite you to share
the beginning of our new life together
when we exchange marriage vows
on Saturday, the twentieth of July
two thousand and thirteen
HOWEVER... I am having an issue with the "our parents" part. The groom & I are paying for the wedding with assistance with some money his dad gave us for "wedding use only" that he came into after my grooms mother passed away. My parents on the other hand... I haven't talked to my father in almost 2 years and when my groom reached out to him he spent the whole time putting me down and did not have anything pleasant to say about me or us. My mother is an alcoholic that can barely take care of herself and is financially supportive on my brother and myself and is only emotionally supportive some of the time, when the mood strikes her. I doubt my dad will even come and I wish I could not invite my mother.
I feel that it should say "together with his parents" instead of "our" I don't feel my family should be honored like his is. Not when his dad is walking me down the aisle and there for us every day not to mention been a solid support for us both for the past 3 years.
I have read up with what etiquette states... But I don't agree I fit into that....
