Invitation Wording- Catholic Mass

Posted on

Invitation Wording Decided.

Invitations have gone to press and are now done!

I wrote about our Invitation Wording Dilemma a while ago, and now it’s done!

Our conclusion:

Together with their parents

[ My Name]


[His Name]

request the honour of your presence

at the Nuptial Mass

where they will be united in the

Sacrament of Holy Matrimony

on Saturday, the ninth of June

Two thousand and twelve

at one o’clock in the afternoon

[Location of Church]

We are glad that we were able to incorporate the importance of our marriage being a Sacrament of Matrimony to our guests as well as inform them that this won’t be your normal “30 minute nuptials”.  Our mass is expected to take about an hour to an hour and a half and I think by informing them it’s a mass is just another way to give them a heads up.  Now that The Mr. is baptized, we are very honored to have it be a full mass as two active Catholics.

Also, although we are young, we are still living on our own and have been since we were 18 when we left for college (longer ago for him than me), so we thought it was more appropriate to say that we are the ones “hosting” it.  My parents have contributed financially, but we still consider to be the ones “hosting” the event.

What do y’all think?

Are y’all “hosting” your own wedding?
