Wording

We apreciate that it is often difficult to decide on wording for wedding invites. If parents have been divorced or re-married it can seem quite confusing to say the least.

You will have the final choice of wording to appear on your invites, we have produced some samples which may help.  

Below is a table of opening lines, depending on who the invite is to be from.
