Bride's Parents Names at the Bottom of the Invite?

Hi All,

Somewhere in all of my online research about invitations and wording, I saw bride's parents names at the bottom of the invite, which is something my mom would prefer over a more traditional Mr. and Mrs. Jones request invitation.

Has anyone else seen this and/or know where to put their names?

Here's our wording so far, I'm not sure where to put it?

Because of the love and friendship

we have shared with you in our lives,

together with our families,




would be honored with your presence

as we begin our lives together

on Saturday, the twenty-second of October

two thousand and eleven

half past three o’clock in the afternoon

Raritan Inn at Middle Valley

Califon, New Jersey

Reception to follow

  • If your parents aren't hosting then I wouldn't put them on the invitation. Also, your invitation is in the 1st person and it should be in the 3 rd person. Honor of one's presence is reserved for weddings that take place in a house of worship. If you're getting married in a hotel then your invitation requests the pleasure of the guests' company.
