instead of have chosen, what about “request the honor of your presence as they…”

or is that not casual enough? 

“invite you to celebrate…”

Or maybe “begin their new life together on Oct. 20 … please join the celebration as they exchange marriage vows …”?

I like the second one. And my fiance’s name is Dara – weird! Lol. He’s Persian, but even in Iran it’s usually a girl’s name. It makes me smile when I meet girls named Dara ๐Ÿ™‚

We were going for something a little more laid back as well and we settled on “Together with their parents, A&T invite you to join them in the celebration of their marriage”

@FreckledFox:  It’s also Celtic – usually a woman’s name, the male equivalent is Daire. It means “oak tree,” which was a sacred tree in ancient Celtic culture.

My FH and I wanted something very similar to what you’re wanting.  We said 

‘together with their families

[my full name]


[FH’s full name]

request the pleasure of your company

at the celebration of their marriage

sunday, the seventh day of October

two thousand twelve

eleven o’clock in the morning

[venue name]

[venue address]

[venue city and state]

reception to follow’


We chose to go with families because my parents are divorced, my grandma has helped a TON, his sister took our engagement photos, his parents were a huge help, my sisters are bridesmaids, baby sis is a flower girl.

I just wanted to make sure I had everyone covered.  So, that worked out nicely for us but together with their parents is nice too.  And I think this sounds laid back but isn’t too casual either.  Works for us =)

good luck!

I’m getting married on the 6th of October. My invites aren’t going out until the end of July. I think you still have plenty of time.
