if he had a middle name, it would be on there.  he just doesn’t have a middle name, that’s all.  you wouldn’t have to put your last name since your parent’s last name is on there.  i would keep it like it is.  🙂  unless you put

 mama and papa lastname

request the honour of your presence

at the marriage of their daughter

akimbo middlename

to

groom’s first name

son of mom and dad lastname

Actually they way you did it is the traditional way to do it! You usually don’t include the bride’s last name… just her full name without the last. As for the fiance, totally normal that he doesn’t have a middle name, so just keep it as is. My fiance has a middle name but we are doing it your way:

mom and dad last name

request etc, etc.

My First and middle name ONLY

to

First Middle Last Name of groom….

You can also put your last name if you want:

Mama and Papa LastName
request the honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
Akimbo MiddleName Lastname

It’s just that, as futuremrsbrown says, one would assume that your last name was the same as your parents, unless it’s not.

I would put his first and last name; it seems a little odd to just call him "groom" if everybody else has more than one name listed.

My invitations have our complete names… so if he or I didn’t have a middle name it wouldn’t look wierd…

We both have middle names, but I think our invitations look better without them! I’m considering leaving them out altogether – if you think it looks ok with just yours, go for it!
