Note:

  • Please note, if the bride would like all parents listed on the invitation, you may list the nonhosting parents (as well as their relationship to the bride and/or groom) below the request line.
  • It is not customary to list the bride's last name; but in instances where more than one parent is hosting and the last name is not obvious, it is best to list to avoid confusion.
  • 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.
