    I like everything except the color of your names. Is it purple? I would either go with the font of the rest of the text or do it in a bolded teal like the tree. Maybe I’m wrong though?

    You’re not including his parents (like “Brian _______, son of Mr. and Mrs. ______ ______” or something)?

    Very nice! I like it as is.  But could you put the names in black and bold to make the names stand out, and match the border?

    Technically, since this your wedding isn’t in a “house of worship,” I think it should be “requests the pleasure of your company.”

    I also agree that your names should be either in the teal of the tree or a totally different, coordinating color.

    I don’t think you need your last name since you’ve prefaced it with “at the marriage of their daughter”.  Just your first and middle. 🙂

    I agree about the name color change but other than that these are so awesome! Good job!

    we have all contributed to the wedding, Fiance and I, my parents, and his parents so we put on our invites “together with their parents, our names, Invite you to……” I didnt want just my parents names b/c we are all in it together, Just an idea…

    I was going to ask where the reception was!  I would definitely include a note that says reception to immediately follow.

    The other poster is right about only requesting the honor of your presence in a house of worship.  Even if you’re getting married by a religious officiant somewhere else, you would request the pleasure of their company.

    I loove the tree, I don’t like the fact it’s blue. My vote is make tree green and tie in the teal color with borders or something else.

    @calypso522:  Looks great!  I’ve looked into the “honor of your presence” thing and it doesn’t have to do with whether it’s actually in a house of worship – it has to do with whether it’s a religious ceremony.  We are having a religious ceremony at a vineyard, and we are using “honor of your presence.” So, I think you’re good with the current wording if you like it. Smile

    @calypso522:  I like it much better with the black font and bolded. 

    My wedding is being funded by both sets of parents (I am paying for some other things but don’t really want to get rid of the parent’s names, either) so I put: 

    my parents’ names

    together with

    his parents’ names

    request the pleasure of your company

    at the marriage of their children

     

    I would say that if the groom’s parents are paying a significant amount, they should probably be on the invitation. It might be a nice touch.
