Wedding Invitation


If the bride's parents are divorced but both want to issue the wedding invitation, her mother uses her maiden name with her divorced husbands name, and the following wording is used:

Mrs. Johnson Disney
and
Mr. Walter Disney
request the honour* of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
Minnie Ann
to
Mickey Matthew Mouse
Saturday, the first of April
two thousand four
at five o'clock in the evening
St. James Cathedral
Orlando, Florida


PLEASE NOTE: If the couple are getting married in a church, the word "honour" is used instead of "honor".
