Another invite wording question, since I’m so indecisive. Does this sound weird?
“With joyful hearts we invite you
to share in celebrating the marriage of
QuidditchQueen and QuidditchKing”
I think it sounds kind of awkward grammatically, but that arrangement looks the best on our invites. We initially had “You are cordially invited” but I don’t like how that sounds as much.
Also, I put our names in a different, fancier font, and I think it looks best not to have those as the first text (so the “Me & Him joyfully invite you to share in celebrating our marriage” wording doesn’t look good.)
Here is the invite I modeled mine after:
Thanks for your help, Bees! 🙂

how bout “with joyful hearts you are invited….” IMO, ending the first line with you just is off to me…

I agree with the “with joyful hears you are invited…”

I don’t think the “With Joyful Hearts you are invited” works either… WHO has joyful hearts? Plus in general you should try to avoid passive tense. What about
With Joyful Hearts
QuidditchQueen and QuiddithKing
invite you to celebrate their marriage
Of course that moves the fonts around which you may not want to do…

@LGenz: that’s why I didn’t think it sounded right – esp. the use of “We”
@MamaHusky3: I must have weddingbrain, I have no idea why I didn’t think of that, haha.
Thank you everyone! 🙂
