"Any help deciphering what this says? On Catherineís marriage certificate. In brackets under the brideís name, and again in the witness box. Invited? Think I see witness as the end?"

Is it possible to post a wider & taller snip to compare letters please?

I don't think the word is 'Invited' as it has a superscript 'd'?

I've seen many 100s of Scottish marriages but I don't think I've ever seen 'Invited' on any?

Could the word be Init'd (Initialled)?

Where are the witnesses names on the other entry?

I'm not sure it says 'witness' either as it doesn't seem to have a capital 'W'?
Could it be a title before his name?
It does look as Monica thought McGuinness?

We need context here.  You see a notation after the name Catherine McLEAN, bride, and we see that image.

You see the same notation after the name of a witness?. We need to see that image....image of the witnesses name with this same notation.
