I didn’t really have a quote on my invites, I just put:

Mr & Mrs. Bridesparents
Together with Mr. & Mrs. Groomsparents
Request the honor of your presence
at the marriage of their children

Bride Name


Groom Name


… etc

There’s a nice one on my invitation designer’s website that says:

Because you have shared in our lives

through your love and friendship, we: 

Bride’s Name


Groom’s Name

together with our parents

(all their names, if you like)

request the honor of your presence, etc.

I think quotes and poems aren’t appropriate for wedding invitations.  I believe in keeping those formal. Save it for the website or bridal shower invite.

We just ordered our invites and this is what we used.

Love is meant to be shared

with family and friends.

Together with their parents

bride lastname


grooom lastname

invite you to share

in their wedding celebration.

all of us are contributing to this wedding as well, so we did:

together with their parents
myfirst middle lastname
hisfirst middle lastname 
request the honor of your presence
that way, neither set of parents got huffy over being listed first or second, and as we’re contributing the most, we figured our names could be the only names on there. 🙂

My parents are doing the wedding, so most of my wording is standard, but I did put a small quote on the top:

"With Joyful Hearts

Mr. and Mrs.  …………………blah blah blah

My Dad is paying for the whole thing (I’m so fortunate), but because all of our parents are divorced and remarried, and it would be quite messy to include them on the invite (for example, my fiance’s dad got remarried after we ordered the invites but before we mailed them!), we used this:

 "Together with their families




request the pleasure of your company . . . "

My dad isn’t big on showing off, so he didn’t care that we didn’t advertise to people that he’s hosting. Plus, everyone who is coming knows that we’re not the kind of people who would be throwing ourselves this big fiesta.
