I think it is JUST FINE!  To be honest, I rarely read wedding invitations word for word.  I look for time, date and place – and I admire the invitation as a whole.  I would chalk this one up to “totally fine, no worries.”  

 

You and I have the same first and middle names!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚  Our parents did a good job.  πŸ™‚

We just went through this with my Mom trying to change our invite wording–I think the problem might have to do with the “person pov” in terms of first person and third person. Potentially using words like us and we with your names might be throwing it off–we elected to go with third person.

I think it is fine… noone is going to think that hard about them… if it makes you feel better I had invites professionally printed and after getting a online proof that WAS correct I sent out 200 invites that stated I was getting married at half past four O’COCK instead of o’clock… only a handful noticed… I did get a refund of 50% and a great laugh… don’t sstress it could be worse Smile

It will be fine.  πŸ™‚  Unless it will stress you out – don’t worry about it.

Ours almost went out with “Handcock” instead of “Hancock”…. πŸ™‚ I think yours are great! Stick with them.

I’ve read this like 10 times trying to figure out what you think is wrong. I still don’t know. No one else will notice I think they are just fine. πŸ™‚

@Mrs. Blocker:  Bahahaha… that is awesome. Glad you weer able to laugh about it!

And like PP, I can’t figure out what is wrong with the invitation wording. It’s fine, don’t overanalyze!

Leaving your last name off the invite is really only “traditional” if your parents are listed as the hosts. 


Mrs. Lucy and Mr. Jack McDougal 

invite you blah blah blah of their daughter

Evelyn Lucille [MacDougal omitted]  to 

Luke Gerald Jones

son of Priscilla and Edmund [Jones omitted].


The assumption here is that you both have the same last name as your parents.
