There’s no ‘right or wrong’ when choosing your invitation wording, nowadays with all the various options your wedding invitation wording simply nee

ds to be personal, set the tone of the wedding and have to contain all the relevant info of the upcoming wedding celebration.

With the increased tendency that the bride & groom cover the costs of the wedding themselves, the mentioning of the parents names in the wording is of a personal preference.

Use your names that you are known by, even a nickname can be used if more than 80% of your guests know you by that name. For more formal wording full names and titles (eg. Mr, Mrs …) can be used.

Any verse eg. “If I know love it’s because of you” can be included at the beginning or end of you wording, to give it a modern and personal tone.
