If you are only inviting certain people from the family (no kids or something like that), you might want to add a line that says ___ of _2_ attending or something like that so you avoid any confusion.  Also, if you don’t have inner envelopes this would help too.

I’d say it’s honored in the US, it’s honoured this side of the pond though.

Yeah I believe the “u” is a British commonwealth thing. We spell it “honoured” in Canada, but in the US I think it’s usually “honored”! Hope that helps 🙂

We used “Honor” instead of “Honour” since the u is a british thing. My Mom actually looked it up in the dictionary to confirm. I think either is technically fine, but if you want to be appropriate use Honor.

Ours said:

Mr. & Mrs. Parents of Moderndaisy

Request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter



Mr. Moderndaisy

actually, it indicates if your wedding is in a church or not.  In normal vinacular, the “u” in honoured is british, but in wedding land, it indicates that the wedding is in a church.
