Since ours is really casual, we wrote: 

“join us for the marriage of 

Bride Name

&

Groom Name

Time

Date

Location”

 

we didn’t want too much frill to it.

we paid for ours with a little bit help from family so here’s what we wrote

“because you have shared in our lives

by your friendship and love,

together with our families

we invite you to celebrate our marriage”

We did something like, “please join us for the celebration fo marriage between Bride & Groom”

it was written more formally and i found it online, though.

Why not try: As we, Bride & Groom, join our lives in marriage, we couldn’t imagine celebrating without you.  Please share this joyous occasion with us on xx Month, Year, at yy ‘o clock.  Reception to follow.

We used the traditional wording, even though we aren’t paying for the wedding in the traditional way.  Both sets of parents contributed and FH and I are paying the rest.  You can word it anyway you want, but talk to your parents about it.  For mine, it was important to them that we use the traditional wording.

If you want something a little more formal, you can use the traditional wording, just leave out the part that indicates the parents are doing the inviting:

“The honor/pleasure of your company is requested

at the marriage of

ready4theday

and

ready4theday’s fiance

at this location

on this date

at this time”

Miss HunnyBear & Mr. HunnyBear

Together we live, we laugh, we love, and on this day we marry

Ours read (more to keep the family drama of divorced/remarried parents at bay, than because we’re paying ourselves):

Now Join your hands,
And with your hands your hearts
– William Shakespeare

My name
and His name
together with their parents
invite you to join them
in celebrating their marriage
on Saturday, the twenty-eighth of August
two thousand and ten
at four o’clock in the afternoon
