    In this case, it is a difference in American and British Englishes and a difference in the phrase. I would not strenously object to "I invite you to my marriage with John", but I would use "to". If one uses "with" there, it might read as though John was being invited to come with you to the wedding. I would, however, strenuously object to "I am married with John." :wink:
