Choosing the Right Wording for Your Wedding Invites

When creating your wedding invites, some people may just focus on the colour and appearance and not give much thought to the actual wording of the invite. The words you use to invite your family and friends to your wedding are just as important as the design of the card itself. For example, did you know that there is different wording to use depending on whether it’s yourselves or the parents of the bride who are hosting the wedding?

The wording of your invites could be either formal or informal depending on the personality of the bride and groom or the theme of the wedding. There is standard information though that you should include no matter which style you go for and this includes:

  • Names of the hosts if it is someone other than yourselves hosting the wedding
  • Names of the bride and groom
  • Location and date of the wedding ceremony
  • Venue for the evening reception
  • RSVP address and reply date

There may be other additional information that you wish to include such as details of any dress code or theme, what time guests can expect the different parts of the day to begin and end, any dietary requirements and whether guests can bring children to the event. All of this may over crowd your invite so a good option is to include an additional information sheet containing all the extra details.
