Invitations: Invite Wording for Both Sets Of Parents Hosting the Affair

Invite wording guidelines:


If one or both sets of parents are hosting, their names should also appear. If it's a joint effort and everyone is pitching in, you might have your names followed by "together with their parents."

Both sets of parents are hosting (formal):


Mr. and Mrs. John L. Baker &
Mr. and Mrs. Mark Franklin Jacobson
request the honor of your presence
at the marriage of their children
Derek Ryan
to
Charles Robert
Saturday, the seventeenth of May
two thousand and eight
at half past four in the afternoon

or

Mr. and Mrs. John L. Baker &
Mr. and Mrs. Mark Franklin Jacobson
request the pleasure of your company
at the marriage of their children
Derek Ryan
to
Charles Robert
Saturday, the seventeenth of May
two thousand and eight
at half past four in the afternoon

Knot Note: Be sure to list the parents' names on separate lines, in alphabetical order. Because both last names are included in the greeting, you do not need to use the last name of either Derek or Charles.
