Note:

  • Be sure to list the bride's parents and groom's parents on separate lines, starting with the bride's.
  • Because both last names are included in the greeting, you don't need to use either the bride or groom's last name.
  • Whether it's a religious ceremony or nondenominational wedding ceremony, the request line can say anything you wish, so long as you are welcoming guests to the wedding.
