kl1987:  Depends, do you and your FI speak American English, British/Canadian English, or other?

When I was searching for the correct wording, I read that “honour” was used when the ceremony would be at a church. And it’s also spelled that way in a few other countries.

I’m not sure how accurate the article was, though.

Honor is the American spelling. Honour is the British. Like with labor or labour …

honor, color, labor etc = American

honour, colour, labour = British/Canadian

Both are correct, depending on where you are

kl1987:  Then spell it honor. I think using the British spelling because it’s more “formal” is silly. If you would never use British/Canadian spelling elsewhere, I don’t think invitations are a place for it. It’s not fancier or anything, it’s just the British spelling.

I second the poster above me. One is not more “correct” than the other.
