I like the response card.  Seems quite clear.

I prefer the Names option over M______________.  Especially for a non-fancy wedding.

On the invite the only part I don’t really get is the listing of the parents at the end.  I think you should either leave that out (won’t most people know who your parents are?) or incorporate it into the text.

AWESOME INVITES…I would too leave off the parents names.

@CountryBee: I don’t think it’s wrong.  It just seems odd.  Like you have all the pertinent info, and then the parents names are just kinda there at the end.  I don’t really understand why. 

Like I said, I would either leave them off, and stick with the ‘together with their families…..” or include them in the text.

Sorry for two posts in a row, but also just wondering, are you having kids at the ceremony and then they have to leave for the reception?  Otherwise isn’t it implied that extra kids aren’t invited to only the reception portion?

The phrase “Adult reception to follow” makes me think that there will be drugs, sex, hookers, and dirty music at the reception.  Which is I assume not what you are intending.

@CountryBee: I don’t see slapping their names at the end to be very honouring.  If you want to honour them then include them in the text.

If they are paying, then it may be nice to list them as the hosts of the party.
