The intricacies of text on a wedding invitation can be a big debate. Let’s take it from the Kenyan perspective. A wedding involves the whole family and community. In most Kenyan traditions, the groom’s family hosts the reception. However when it comes to the wedding invitation, both family’s names are included. Therefore when considering the text to use on a Kenyan wedding invitation, it is best to include the parents names. They are always are proud to be acknowledged and included in every aspect of the wedding celebration.
