We are finalizing our invitation wording and, after looking at them for a long time, we’re now unsure if we like the wording we chose. Here’s the wording:
Together with their parents
[My FirstName LastName] and [His FirstName LastName]
invite you to a joyous celebration of love, laughter, friendship and family
as they exchange wedding vows.

I know its casual but our wedding is more informal – though, now I’m second guessing ourselves and wondering if we should change to something a bit more formal(?). And, if we do change, what should we say? We’d love any help/insight from the Hive!
(Also – did we make any massive etiquette mistakes?)

I think it looks good for a more casual affair. I would only change the order of the date – to “Saturday, the 28th of September”. Just one more thing, do you plan to add anything about a reception? Just a simple “reception to follow” might be a good addition.

@MsSunny: I think it’s wonderful. I think an invitation should say what it means. For instance, I’m forgoing the whole “honor of your presence” thing. I don’t want an audience- I want family friends and love, dancing the night away and having a blast! So if your invitation says what you want, DO IT! I love your invitation wording!

I like yours. Ours is similar:
“Together with our parents,
Name 1 & Name 2
invite you to share our joy as we
celebrate our union with christ
Saturday 5th of October at Four Thirty
Dinner, Drinks and Dancing will follow”
I like your wording too.

Some parents may be offended if you don’t actually include their names, especially if they are contributing financially to the wedding!
