Wedding invitation wording?

Is this good for the wording?

Our daughter, Jade Marie,
and our son, Brandon Joseph
will be united in Christ
on Saturday, the fourteenth of October
Two thousand and six
At half past three in the afternoon
University Church
Address

Mr. and Mrs. Ramon Cloud
Mr. and Mrs. Kirt Case

My mom's first reaction was, "It doesn't say they are invited."
I love her though!

Btw, here are the invitations we've ordered: http://www.paperelegance.com/wedding/blue/wj9125-83.htm

Actually, at first I thought your mom was nuts, but now that I re-read it, I think she may have a point...

This sounds more like an annoucement, rather than an invite. You may want to say "The honor of your presence is requested as our daugher, Jade Marie, and our son......" or something like that.

I think I found a better one:

God has led two lives
to take one path
__________ (Bride)
and
__________ (Groom)
together with their parents
invite you to witness their vows
as they begin their joyful journey
on ___________ (Date)
_____________ (Year)
at _____________ (Time)
______________ (Location)
____________ (Address)
______, _______ (City, State)

yes it does sound like an announcement not an invitation.

Also, it does sound kind of like an inbreed wedding... our son and our daughter will be married?? I understood when at the end I saw it was from both parents, but I think most people may have the same reaction! The invitation is traditionally sent from the bride's parents and mentions the parents in the wording.

This site gives examples of several situations, depending on who is hosting the wedding...
