Mine said:

Something borrowed and something blue

a silver sixpence in her shoe

some things are old, some things are new

someone to care and share your life

the dream of every husband and wife

Bride’s name


Groom’s name

request the honor of your presence

as we exchange marriage vows

of love and devotion



We paid for our own wedding, but my Mother-In-Law did the rehearsal dinner and my parents gifted us the honeymoon last minute.

we’re wording ours like this:


the pleasure of your company is requested at the marriage ceremony of

bride and groom

on the xx day of xxxx two thousand eleven

(address of venue)

reception to follow



we may or may not put our parents names in it–if we do, it will be 


daughter of mom & dad



son of mom & dad


i’m paying for the wedding.  my parents have offered money, but i have yet to accept (and probably won’t ever)

How abotu the following:


“You are cordially invited to celebrate the wedding of  Groom and  Bride.”


“ Groom and  Bride ask that you share the celebration of love and happiness at their wedding…”


got those ideas from this article: http://www.projectwedding.com/wedding-ideas/invitations-what-will-you-say

I really think that you should word it as you and your husband inviting the guests to the wedding. Using the words “along with their parents” wouldn’t really be appropriate in your case.

Well, we went plain and blunt.  More or less, lol.  The wording is rather blunt but the artwork is anything but plain!  (I have sooo gotta upload pics tonight…)

Here’s what we did for the announcement/invite, since we’re paying for everything and it’s more a party than a traditional-type (or even semi-traditional) wedding:

On front of card: You’re Invited

On back of card:
Announcing the Marraige of
(Bride & Groom)
and are inviting you to join us in the celebration.
Please reply by: (date)

straightforward, slightly formal and not cutsy. 

hope this helps!!!!
