I actually just read somewhere if everyone is paying, including both of you, then you put you and your FI’s name first, then go bride’s family and then groom’s family. I like that idea! Oh and usually, "request the honor/honour of your presence" is normally used for a ceremony conducted in a house of worship. Hope they help!

Ms. Bride
Mr. Groom
together with their parents
Mr. and Mrs. Bride’s parents &

Mr. Groom’s Mom
Mr. and Mrs. Groom’s Dad & Stepmom
request the honor of your presence
at their wedding
Saturday, the seventeenth of May
two thousand and eight
at half past four in the afternoon

(Not sure why there is an extra space between bride’s parents and the line for Mr. Groom’s mom–shouldn’t be!)

Ideas for other than "honor of your presence": 

request the pleasure of your company;

invite you to their wedding;

invite you to share and celebrate at their wedding;

invite you to share in their joy at their wedding.

Just make sure that line invites them to your wedding. Of course 😉 Really, you can do whatever you want. Some people put fancy quotes before the top of the invite, some people keep it simple, some people had a lot of info. Do what you want to do 🙂

Another thing that I have seen is:

request the pleasure of your company at 

the marriage of their daughter

Miss Bride


Mr. Groom

Son of Mr. and Mrs. Groom
