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. But nowadays with the change in time, hosting the marriage is like a honor and anyone can host. There can be the names of your singles parents, set of parents, stepparents, or all of them together.
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.
Next is Invitation Line which comes below host line and defines how you invite the guests. While considering the way of talking, different folks use their unique way of talking and inviting someone. Same applies here as well, where different types of phrases can be used to convey the same message. Some of the sample phrases include “Invite you to share their joy”, “honor of your presence”, “pleasure of your company”, “Want you to come party with us” and many others. This section can contain anything in any tone according to your requirement.
Further comes the Names Line, which obviously contains the names of two tying the knot.
