Pastor Invitation?

Did anybody send a wedding invitation to the person who is/was marrying you?. I thought about sending it, and then i thought about not, but i wasn't sure the exact etiquitte to sending one.

When I looked online, it said to write it "The Reverend John Smith" (example).

But our Pastor ALSO has a wife, so i was wondering how to word that on the invitation.

I also didn't know if i should send him a wedding invitation or just the reception invitation .

Since i'm asking for the responses back by February 10th at the latest, the invitations are going out today!! . That way i'm giving them a little over a month to get the responses back to us, make the seating chart, give reception venue head count, ect.....

Thanks SO much for your help!!

um i think you should send the whole thing instead of taking it apart. usually you invite your pastor to do a blessing and sending the invite is more formal. im not positive on the addressing part but i would assume it goes like this
"The Reverend and Mrs. John Smith" i could be wrong though

Most pastors don't stay long. They will usually eat dinner with you....Depends on the relationship you have with your pastor. at cousin's wedding, pastor came a while later (had to do church service) had a little to eat, mingled with guests and then left...didn't stay long enough for the wild stuff.

If they have the same last name, they would be 'The Reverends Smith' or Revs. Smith, like you would if they were doctors. (drs. smith)

Good question. Alot of the information tells you how to address it if both are doctors but not both pastors. What I did was made my own rule based on the doctors rule. For the outer envelope I put: The Reverends John and Jane Smith/ Inner envelope: The Reverends Smith. I went through all of that trouble and researching and agonizing over that decision. I later found out that the lady reverend prefered "mrs." lol!
