You're Invited...

A few months ago my mom, my sister and I were sitting on my mom's bed (our favorite place to congregate at my parents' house) discussing invitations. We pulled out my parents' wedding invitation and numerous samples from various magazines to come up with the perfect wording.

I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty picky about wording. I'm not really a "wordy" person, I like simplicity. I'm not a fan of "oclocks" and "two thousand nines," gimme 4:30 PM and 2009 and I'm happy. I guess its a product of being an accountant, I like things simple and numeric!

We thought we had it down to the PERFECT wording, but there a couple of small changes that could be made.

Option 1:

Small Town Dad & Small Town Mom

How do "Small Town Dad & Small Town Mom" feel about hosting a wedding for:

1. both their daughter and future son in law...

or

2. just their daughter?

(I agree about the numbers as opposed to spelling them out. If it takes me 20 minutes to figure out when the wedding is, then I have to cross it out and write it in numbers, it's too much work. I am always afraid I read it wrong!!!)
