Trying to decide on wording for our invitations and keeping it short! My parents are currently going through a rough patch…and are not sure whether they are separating or not, so they have told me it’s fine to go with the wording of Mr. and Mrs. First Last – so that will be used instead of “Together with their parents”. Also, it’s important to Fiance to include his late mother’s name…but let me know if you think there is a better way to do this. 🙂
Also – do you have any creative ideas or short verses for a winter wedding – it’d be neat to tie that in but I’d still like the wording to reflect that it’s a church wedding. No big deal but any suggestions are super helpful!

Your wording sounds lovely… I can’t give you any creative ideas, and I went with traditional wording that reflects that my parents are solely paying for and hosting the wedding.
This website has some winter/ holiday wedding ideas. http://www.invitationconsultants.com/samplewording.aspx?p_subcategory=211
Hope that helps

@Ms.Meghann: thanks! I’ll check it out now 🙂 I’m just worried it will be way too wordy for the invite space…lol

@jlc3: I dont think it’ll come across as too wordy. How big is the invitation/ “printing space”?

This is the invitation I’m talking about (it’s metallic silver paper but we would use a dark blue ink instead of the pink). The font can also be a bit smaller, and we can re-arrange a bit of the layout. I’m not sure the exact measurements though.
This is our 1st choice but we have another one we like too that has a bit more space for type.

Looks like it’s at least 5×7… so you’ll have enough space… not too wordy at all.
