Invitation wording

We are paying for our wedding but would like to include both of our parents names on the invitations. FI's dad is a retired Master Sergeant in the Marine Corps and FI is a 1st Lt. In the Marine Corps. Would this be correct?

Mr. and Mrs. Gregory -------
Master Sergeant and Mrs. James ------
Request the honour of your presence
At the marriage of their children
Megan Justine -----
Timothy James ------
First Lieutenant, United States Marine Corps

Re: Invitation wording

  • I'm not entirely certain about the title for his dad, since he's retired, but the way you did your fiancé's title is fine. Personally, my fiancé and I chose to put his rank before his name, which might be a better option for you, only because you put his dad's rank before his name. I think it's fine either way, you just might want to do them both the same, in the interest of uniformity :)

    P.S. Congratulations and Semper Fi!! ;)
