Wedding invitation wording????

I don't know how to word my wedding invitation. Me, my fiance' and my mom are paying for the wedding. My parents aren't together and my dad will not be there. I was thinking about

MY NAME
and
MY FIANCE'S NAME
together with
MY MOM'S NAME
Request the honor of you presence
for the exchanging of their vows
on March 12, 2011

Does anyone have any other ideas? I don't know if I LOVE this one and I would love other ideas. Thank you everyone

  • I personally wouldn't put my mom's name on the wedding invitation.

  • I have thought of that but I would feel bad as she is paying for about half the wedding.

    Your Name
    and

  • I like spotted pony's idea. Since your mother, as partially footing the bill, is hostess, then her name needs to be in a prominent position.

    Your mother's name,
    Your name,
    and Your fiance's name
    request....

  • Just bc dad isn't going to be there doesn't mean he's not a parent who would invite guests to your wedding. I am a mom who paid for a dd's wedding and I made their wedding invitations. I just put their names. It's not important who knows that mom helped pay for the wedding. It's assumed that the bride's family paid.

  • I've rethought my answer. My fiance paid for part of our wedding, and I did, too, but my parents covered most of it, so their name came first. My fiance and I took no credit for the financing that we did.

    Your mother's name
    requests the presence (etc)
    at the marriage of her daughter
    Your name
    to
    Your fiance's name... etc.
