The Who’s of Wedding Invitation Text

Last week we listed the specific questions that need to be answered with your wedding invitation text.  The first two questions deal with ‘who’…

  1. Who’s hosting the wedding?  The name(s) of whoever is paying for the wedding should be listed just before the line ‘invite you to share with us’ or ‘request the honour of your presence’, depending on how you choose to have it worded on your wedding invitations.  This may be you and your fiance or it may be one or both sets of parents.  It may also be both you and your parents combined meaning all of you should be listed as doing the inviting.
  2. Who’s getting married?  This may seem obvious but how will you and your fiances’ names be printed.  Only the first and middle names of the bride and groom need to be printed if their parents’ names will also appear revealing their last name.  For instance, if only the bride’s parents will be listed, she simply needs to list her first and middle name but the groom should include his last name since his parents names won’t be printed.  In some cases, it is chosen not to include middle names.

In next week’s post, we’ll cover the ‘when’ and ‘where’.
