That sounds good to me. I think whatever you choose to do will work out just fine.

I think it sounds good.  You incorporated everything you needed to put in there and it works.

My only issue is that it sounds like you’re saying that they’ve shared in your parents’ lives, not yours.  I imagine there are some people invited to your wedding who haven’t shared in your parents’ lives at all, and have only been part of yours and your FI’s. Obviously I don’t know that for sure!  If that’s what you intended, then go for it!  If you wanted to make it sound like they have shared in YOUR life I would do it like this:

Because you have shared in our lives 

with friendship and love, we,




Together with

[Bride parents names]


[Groom parent’s names]

request the pleasure of your companyat our marriage 

on Sunday, the fifth of September

Two thousand ten

at quarter past five in the afternoon 


address, city, state

Reception immediately following 


Just a thought!

ETA: Formatting is a little wonky, can’t fix it, but you get the idea!

Just a grammatical thing – if you say WE, parents and parents then it should be OUR children, not THEIR children, but if you take out the we it should be their.  Sorry for the caps, just wanted to make sure you knew what I was talking about 🙂

I agree with mrsmdphd’s thoughts…

And I think that your mother will have to get over it if she is upset. You should either include both sets of parents, or neither. But, I don’t think that your wording is wonky at all!
