Are you going to put the “for replies, regrets….” part on the 2nd page?  

If you want to include FI’s parents on the invite you could do:

John Middle Last

son of Mr. and Mrs. Firstname MiddleName GroomsName

And, bees, tell me if I’m wrong but maybe change “light  refreshments to follow” to something else.

@TogetherThroughLife:  I would say to have the invite as card one, and card two be your directions and RSVP info.  No need for a third card if you’re requesting RSVPs by phone and email.  Have you checked into Vistaprint invitations?  They are really inexpensive, and in full color, with envelopes – alot cheaper than many other options.

If you go with Vista print you can use both sides of the invite.  Put all RSVP, directions, etc on the back!  We wanted to save on invites so we did it!

@TogetherThroughLife:  Are you serving alcohol?  If yes, I would use refreshments to follow.  Otherwise, use either verse.  I wouldn’t go without – then guests might be wondering if there is a reception.

Grammatically, saying two thousand AND thirteen is incorrect. The “and” should be omitted. Though it certainly is ok to keep it, and lots of people do so it wouldn’t be completely out there if you prefer it that way.

@TogetherThroughLife:  It could go either way – refreshments or desserts.  Really up to you.  Or put up a poll – the Bee loves polls!
