Note:

  • Since you're listing the parent's name above, there's no need to list the bride's last name unless it's different than the last name of the parent who's hosting.
  • Whether it's a religious ceremony or nondenominational ceremony, the request line can say anything you wish, so long as you are welcoming guests to the wedding.
