    Probably just me, but I’m not crazy about the “solidify our family through marriage” wording. I voted #1.

    So I picked 1. I get that you’re trying to include the kids and make it a “family” thing. But using the word “solidify” makes it sounds like the relationship was previously unstable. Honestly, and I don’t think this is what you mean at all, it makes it sound like you’re getting married for the kids (not because you’re in love). Also “solidification” makes me think of chemistry. Not the hot, sexy kind but the high school, lab coat, and goggles kind.

    How about “With joyous hearts we invite you to celebrate our family through the joy of our marriage”?

    or “With joyous hearts we invite you to celebrate our marriage and our family”

    Not feeling the “with joyous heart” part.

    You could put something like celebrate our union as a family through marriage instead of the word solidify. As with other comments previously posted, the word solidify doesn’t scream stable or happy to me and was making me cringe a little..
