I am dealing with this right now too… I googled invitation wording and found alot of samples. Davids bridal also does invites now and they have some good verbiage on their site. I hope that helps!

@jsa51686: Who is paying for what isn’t supposed to be common knowledge, so that part doesn’t affect the wording at all. What matters is, who is making the primary decisions about the wedding, finalizing the guest list, and otherwise taking responsibility for her guests’ comfort? That person is the hostess. If it is your mothers, just issue the invitation in their names, like this:

Mr and Mrs Dad Bridey

and

Mr and Mrs  Parents Groomly

request the honour of the company of

<


write in line


>
(or, “the honour of your company”)

to the wedding of their children

Jsa Bridey

and

Tom Groomly …

=======================

if you are the hostess, then you write:

 

Miss Jsa Bridey

daughter of Mr and Mrs Dad Bridey

requests the honour of the company of

<


write in line


>

to her wedding to

Mr Tom Groomly

son of Mr and Mrs  Parents Groomly …

 

===================

or, less correctly but more commonly:

Miss Jsa Bridey

daughter of Mr and Mrs Dad Bridey

and

Mr Tom Groomly

son of Mr and Mrs  Parents Groomly

request the honour of the company of

<


write in line


>

to their wedding  …

Ms. Jill Marie Doe

daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Doe

and

Mr. Joseph Smith

son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Smith

request the pleasure of your company

at their marriage celebration etc.
