Groom’s Parents Hosting

When the groom’s parents are hosting the wedding, just change the formula for invitation wording slightly. They invite you to the marriage of the bride “to their son.” The groom’s name may or may not be listed first. You’ll want to include the bride’s surname in addition to her first and middle name on a formal invitation.
