The top most section of any wedding card is Host Line, which basically defines who is hosting the event. Generally it was considered in early days that the parents of bride are only responsible for all things.

In other case, bride and groom are also found hosting the event by their own. In such a scenario, their names can also be used at host line. If you don’t want to specify any name, but still want to include everyone, you can use it in general way like “XYZ with their families”. Going deep into host line, the mentioned names are all about the honor and not about promotion of something. Their should be genuine names of living person who can bestow the honor in a perfect way.
