Q: How should the invitation be worded if the bride's family is paying?
A: Here is the traditional wording which lists the bride's parents as hosts:
Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan Rogers
request the honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
You can also reverse this format if the groom's family is paying. Additionally, many couples opt to include the names of the groom's parents—even if they are not contributing financially. This would appear below the groom's name [son of Mr. and Mrs. John Clark].
