    Help with wedding invitation wording

    How to word wedding invitations? Here is a sample:

    Mr & Mrs J Sultana together with Mr & Mrs P Allie
    request the pleasure of
    Joseph Greech
    to celebrate the wedding of
    Michael & Mandy
    on 25th March 2017 at 1pm
    St Matthews Church
    12 Tebbutt Street, Windsor
    then afterwards at 6pm
    The Grand Roxy,
    Level 1, 128 The Grand Parade, Brighton Le Sands
    RSVP: 13th January 2018

    In this case the parents are hosting the wedding, so they are the one’s inviting the guests. If both parents are hosting the wedding, the traditional way is to have the groom’s parent’s names first. If the bride’s parents are solely hosting the wedding, their names are only listed, or appear first. (Many modern bride’s, prefer to have their names appear first on the invitations, regardless of who is hosting the wedding and if this is the case, then the bride’s parents would appear first, too).

    Another example includes:
    Samuel and Charlotte
    You are invited to help celebrate the marriage of
    Andy Gibbs to Haley Spark
    on Saturday the 15th February 2014 at 1:30pm
    Our Lady Of Victories Church
    1788 The Horsley Drive, Horsley Park
    Followed by the reception at 6.00pm
    Curzon Hall – Sir Phillip Lounge
    53 Agincourt Road, Marsfield
    RSVP: 03rd March 2018

    In this example, the bride and groom are hosting the wedding and have included their names only.

    Inviting the guest can be worded in many different ways: “request the pleasure of…”, “request the pleasure of the company of…”, ‘’have the pleasure of inviting….”, ‘’invite…”, ‘’you are invited to help celebrate the marriage of…’’.

    Other details that go on the invitation, listed in order, are:
    – The date and time of the ceremony.
    – The address of the ceremony.
    – A line saying ‘’followed by reception”, “then afterwards”, ‘’reception to follow’’
    The time of reception, if it is not immediately after the ceremony.
    – The address of the reception.
    – The RSVP date, if you are supplying an RSVP card, for guests to send back. If there is no RSVP card, then write the RSVP date along with an email address, website or phone numbers.
