Today anyone can foot the bill, and with modern familial arrangements often anything but nuclear, there is no straightforward rule for wording invitations. Below is wording samples for some of the most common arrangements.<br /><br /><b>Bride's Parents Host - traditional</b><br /><br />Mr. and Mrs. John Doe Smith<br /><br>request the honour of your presence<br /><br>at the marriage of their daughter<br /><br>Jane Marie<br /><br>to<br /><br>Thomas Allan Johnson<br /><br>Saturday, the sixteenth of July<br /><br>two thousand and eight<br /><br>at six o'clock in the evening<br /><br>Peachtree Presbyterian Church<br /><br>3434 Roswell Road<br /><br>Atlanta, Georgia<br /><br /><b>Bride's Parents Host - <a href="http://www.serendipity01.com/samples-of-wedding-invitation- wording.htm" title="Samples of wedding invitation wording">Samples of wedding invitation wording</a> variation mentioning groom's parents</b><br /><br />Mr. and Mrs. John Doe Smith<br /><br>invite you to share in the joy<br /><br>of the marriage uniting their daughter<br /><br>Jane Marie<br /><br>to<br /><br>Thomas Allan Johnson<br /><br>Son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe P.
