KitSnicket:  That is what we used: 

Because you have shared in their lives

Through your friendship and love 

You are invited to share in the joy at the wedding of 

Bride’s Name, Groom’s name 

 

The invitation design I really wanted forced us to use this wording.  I needed our names to appear after exactly 3 lines of text.  If you have more flexibility there are lots of options.  Google “invitation wording for bride and groom hosting”.

KitSnicket:

You can also use titles with your names. 

The traditional version, which I prefer,  is intentionally understated. Strict etiquette would say that the  “love and friendship” part is  presumed and need not be overstated. Supposedly that implies your wedding has more love etc. than the next person’s, LOL.

weddingmaven:  Agree.  I gotta say that wording is not my style at all.  Unfortunately I got a late start working on invitations though and it was all we could come up with in the time crunch.  I could have chosen a different design that wouldn’t force me into that line structure but I was mad for this certain design and decided to comprimise on the wording.  The design was fit for parents hosting, so in order to use it I had to do it that way.

“Together with their loved ones” “In a celebration of their love” “In a declaration of their love” “In love and happiness” “Are starting their forever”

Hope this helps!!

I wanted to suggest something like “X and Y, together with their loved ones” but I see OTtobe has already wrote that. If you are thinking about this phrase you can count two votes fot it 😉

KitSnicket:  I think we’re just going to do something along the lines of “You are invited to witness the marriage of: ” We have an absentee mother and deceased father on my FI’s side and my parents are super chill and don’t care at all about etiquette, just that we’re happy, so there’s not an issue.

Depending on how casual it is, I have seen templates for wedding invitations that simple say John Smith and Jane dow invite you to attend their wedding celebration…

I don’t think there is anything wrong with keeping it sweet and simple.
