What purpose does the “we” serve. Looks/reads much better without.

  • Wedding: June 2010

I’d probably go with something more like this:

BRIDE
and
GROOM
are happy to announce
their marriage
on DAY
YEAR
CITY, STATE

Please join them
for a celebration
on DAY
YEAR
TIME
LOCATION
CITY, STATE

 

And totally ok to use your married name if you’re planning to change, since the legal wedding has already happened!

If you would like to use first person what about:

We

Bride Name

Groom Name

Invite you to share in a celebration of our marriage.

 

*if the invites are going out after your marriage use your new name. If they will be going out before your wedding then your maiden name would be the proper way to go.

@MichelleLisa143: It doesn’t sound right without the “we” either with the way it’s worded. To keep it first person you would need the “we” and to change the wording to reflect that the wording is all part of the same “sentence” or thought.

@MichelleLisa143:  It depends on your crowd. My cousin just put something on hers stating that they were getting married in a small private ceremony with only close family and friends. I don’t think I know anybody who’s up in arms about it. 

I think it would also depend on how long after the wedding your celebration is taking place. My cousin’s is about a month after her wedding. My Fiance and I are having some invitation only invites (it’s actually common and acceptable around our families), but our wedding and ceremony are same day. Since that is the case we left off our ceremony information because I think that would cause more problems.

@MichelleLisa143:  Psht then add away! 

I like what Americano suggested. It’s informal and fun! I think it would get your guests excited.
