I didn’t really have a quote on my invites, I just put:

Mr & Mrs. Bridesparents
Together with Mr. & Mrs. Groomsparents
Request the honor of your presence
at the marriage of their children

Bride Name

and

Groom Name

 

… etc

There’s a nice one on my invitation designer’s website that says:

Because you have shared in our lives

through your love and friendship, we: 

Bride’s Name

and

Groom’s Name

together with our parents

(all their names, if you like)

request the honor of your presence, etc.

I think quotes and poems aren’t appropriate for wedding invitations.  I believe in keeping those formal. Save it for the website or bridal shower invite.

all of us are contributing to this wedding as well, so we did:

 
together with their parents
 
myfirst middle lastname
hisfirst middle lastname 
 
request the honor of your presence
 
that way, neither set of parents got huffy over being listed first or second, and as we’re contributing the most, we figured our names could be the only names on there. 🙂

My parents are doing the wedding, so most of my wording is standard, but I did put a small quote on the top:

"With Joyful Hearts

Mr. and Mrs.  …………………blah blah blah

My Dad is paying for the whole thing (I’m so fortunate), but because all of our parents are divorced and remarried, and it would be quite messy to include them on the invite (for example, my fiance’s dad got remarried after we ordered the invites but before we mailed them!), we used this:

 "Together with their families

 Bride

and

Groom

request the pleasure of your company . . . "

My dad isn’t big on showing off, so he didn’t care that we didn’t advertise to people that he’s hosting. Plus, everyone who is coming knows that we’re not the kind of people who would be throwing ourselves this big fiesta.
