Hey there..
Thank u for the response.
Here is the full sentence - I cordially invite your esteemed presence with family to ..
My doubt is if the usage is correct? Or can u only invite a person?

The usual way to say this formally would be

The pleasure of your company is requested at [name of event].

OR

Mr and Mrs xxxxx request the pleasure of your company at the [name of the event]

More informally, it could be

I would like to invite you to join the family in order to [whatever it is - for instance: celebrate the wedding of our [son/daughter, name,]]

Yes..thank u ...
The trouble is the cards have been printed and the words used are :
Cordially invite your esteemed presence with family on the auspicious occasion of the marriage of our daughter:
I wanted to know if the entire sentence was wrong.
I did some grammar checks online..that seemed fine...:cry:

It is not how we would phrase it here, but it is fine.

Next time - it might be better to ask before you give the order to the printers! ;-)

OH!!! I can't say how glad I am to hear that!!
Didn't muse too much over it earlier..saw the words on many other cards and went along with it..was havin a panic attack now.. :-D
So as long as the sentence isn't wrong-wrong...
:):):)
So it IS ok to invite one's presence. Was happy when I found this : invite - Wiktionary .. had to confirm though..
Thanks a lot for your help!!
:-D
