Sorry, but no, it isn’t right unless your Fiance is your brother! The way you have it reads as tho you are the children of YOUR parents.

If both parents are hosting, both parent’s names are mentioned, as in

Mr & Mrs. Evie parents

Mr. & Mrs. Groom’s parents

Request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their children

bride’s name

groom’s name

lol. It still isn’t right. You should do your parents requesting presence at the marriage of their daughter (then your name) TO (his name), son of…his parents.

Or you can not mention either set of parents and write

Together with their families

Bride name

Groom name

invite you…

This has many pages showing you exactly the way invitations should be written, so you can read through and see which ones apply to you.

Nice! I think it says exactly what you want it to say without being confusing. 🙂

Your spacing is off.  Some things need their own line.

Here’s the way we did my daughter’s, so make sure you set yours up the way you want it to read, properly spaced (as mentioned) and including all the information pertinent to the event. This is done a bit differently, as that’s the way they wanted it.

and this is the other daughter’s (hope you can read it,tho blurred), where the groom’s parents were not included.
