The Groom's parents are issuing the invitation: Use the wording as above but include the bride's surname: i.e. Mr. & Mrs. Peter Brown request the pleasure of your company at the marriage of Sally Smith to their son John The couple are paying for their own wedding: They may still wish to issue the invitation on behalf of Sally and/or John's parents or if not, they use their own first and last names.
Many couples experience a lot of pressure when choosing invitations. There are many elements to remember and making a mistake is a waste of money and can hurt someone's feelings. There are a few things that need to be considered before ordering invites. The more wedding invites weigh, the more they will cost to ship. Make sure the names on the invitation are spelled correctly and decide which names to include on the invite. Parents are typically on the invite, but can be difficult for multiple step parents or other awkward family situations.
