Name of Bride and groom
Date and time
Traditionally, the bride’s parents host the wedding and their names appear on the host line.

If the groom’s parents are co-hosting the wedding along with the bride’s parents, it is customary for the bride’s parent’s names to appear first and the groom’s parent’s names to follow.
If the groom’s parents are not co-hosting the wedding but the couple wishes to acknowledge them, their name appears after the groom’s name.
In a situation where the couple is paying for their own wedding, I suggest the following:
Together with their families
