Traditional Wording
A couple of tips: If the bride's parents are hosting, it’s customary to leave off the bride's last name. But in the case of a bride having a different last name than her parents, her full name should be used. If the groom's parents are involved, the bride's last name should be included. In its simplest form, this is the standard wording template.
 
 
 
Mr. and Mrs. John L. Smith
 
request the pleasure of your presence
 
at the marriage of their daughter
 
Heather Marie
 
to
 
Michael Francis Jacobson
 
Saturday, the seventeenth of May

Reception to follow
 
If one set of parents is hosting:
Since you’re including the bride's parents’ names on the invitation, you do not need to list the bride's last name (unless she has a different last name than her parents). On the following line, the groom’s entire name should be written out.

If both sets of parents are jointly hosting:
List the bride's parents and groom's parents on separate lines, starting with the bride's. Since both last names are included in the greeting, you don’t need to use either the bride’s or groom's last name. Of course, the same exception we mentioned above would apply here if either the bride or groom has a different last name than their parents. In that case, list out the full bride’s or groom’s name, in addition to the full names of the parents.
