I’m going to break down each line that makes up your wedding invitation wording. This way you will know the actual reason behind them so nothing gets left out.
The announcement line is an optional line of wedding invite wording that is being used less and less often. This line consists of a phrase such as “with great joy” or “with joyous hearts”. You can use it to show your pure joy and excitement.
The host line is where you state who is hosting your wedding. Who is the one throwing the reception? Who is doing the inviting? You will list the hosts names here. This may be one set of parents, both sets of parents, the couple, or all of the above! In this case, you would use the phrase “together with their families”.
After the host line, you will use the request line to do the actual inviting! “Request the honor/honour of your presence” is the most traditional for ceremonies taking place in a house of worship. “Request the pleasure of your company” is a common option for ceremonies not in a house of worship.
