OK wise ladies of TK, this is what we came up with. Your input is appreciated.
Notes: its a Jewish wedding in a beautiful city in the middle of Europe. Both my mom and his parents are generously contributing (we are covering about 50% and they are splitting the rest 50/50). We tried to convey that. Or does that sound weird and should we just change it to the parents are requesting the honor of everyone's presence ? (We do want to name the parents as opposed to using "together with their families"). Also do we need to say Chuppah Ceremony instead of just Chuppah? And, if the venue is a landmark, do we need to put the full address on there? Seems like that would look very crowded.
Should our website go on there? Or on a separate card?
Thanks in advance!
