So I got the proof of the wording for our wedding invitations… and I’m not sure if the wording flows correctly. Fiance doesn’t think his parents names need to be on there. Aren’t the names of the grooms parents typically included? Should it say two thousand and ten? Should there be a “with” after celebration? (The venue is listed at the bottom but I didn’t show the name). I am such a failbride with this kind of stuff. 🙁

As far as I understand it, the “hosts” are listed on the invitation, so if the groom’s parents aren’t really contributing to the wedding financially, they don’t have to be put on the invitation. It’s a nice gesture, but etiquette-wise I don’t think it’s required.
I believe there was another post recently about the “and”.. and I think it is proper to not have the “and”. If you have the “and” it denotes a decimal point.
I’m not really sure about the “with” after celebration.. it sounds better to me to have the “with” but I have no idea 🙂

Its up to you if you want your FI’s parents names to be on there. I had my FI’s parents because we wanted to and they were contributing the wedding stuff. Are his parents helping financially?
I think etiquette wise its supposed to be “Two Thousand Ten” but I had “And” on mine and it didnt matter to anyone 🙂
I would put a “With” after Celebration. Or you can eliminate the whole thing and put “reception to follow at half past six with dinner and dancing….etc”

Without the with it sounds more like two separate sentences, which is fine, just different.
I think it reads well and I agree lemilie about the names indicating hosting and not including and.

Thanks ladies! I am going to remove his parents names because they are not contributing to the actual wedding/reception (they are paying for the rehearsal dinner), and Fiance doesn’t really want them on there anyways. I’m going to leave the date the way I had it, and add a “with” after celebration.
This is why I love this place, so many helpful people!
