Are you looking for wedding wording ideas to use on your personalized wedding invitations? You’ve arrived at the correct location. It doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming to word your wedding invitations in a tone and manner that complements your event.

There are many wonderful wedding invitation wording alternatives for your invites, whether you’re planning a formal or informal occasion. Some weddings aren’t strictly traditional or informal, but rather fall somewhere in the between.

Many couples like to employ a mix of standard and non-traditional terminology in their wedding vows. You might use classic wedding invitation wording like “The honor of your presence is requested at the wedding of,” “You are cordially invited to celebrate the marriage of,” or “We invite you to participate in our joy and request your presence at the wedding of” on the more formal side. Try something easy and casual for more informal wedding invitation greetings and phrases, such as “You are invited to the wedding of,” “Kindly join us at the wedding of,” or “Please come help us celebrate our love.” If you and your partner have a catchphrase or slogan, include it in your invitations if it makes sense.

What should I write on my wedding invitation?

The first line of the wedding invitation is dedicated to the host of the wedding, also known as the party covering the expenses. Don’t forget to provide the following information:

  1. A first sentence
  2. Groom’s name and
  3. Bride’s name
  4. A statement that takes action
  5. The date of the wedding
  6. Time Year
  7. Select a place
  8. The location’s address
    If the wedding and reception are held at the same location, the reception will be held after the wedding.

Don’t Forget to Write Plans for After the Ceremony

Make it clear to your guests what they may expect following the ceremony. It’s a terrific method to establish clear expectations for your reception. It’s a good idea to specify whether there will be a cocktail hour, dancing, or supper, or to offer a link to your wedding website that has all the details. If the reception will be hosted at a different location, you should also mention the address.

The first thing visitors see when they open their wedding invitation is your overall design. Adding creative design elements to your invites is the most enjoyable aspect of the process. There are many different invitation styles to pick from, such as artistic, whimsical, and vintage.

10 Creative Wedding Invitation Wordings Ideas

In reality, there isn’t much of a distinction between formal and informal wedding invitations. If your wedding is formal, classic wedding invitations with the script, foil components, and a lot of shine are a good choice. If you’re planning an informal celebration, though, you might want to consider one of our rustic wedding invites, which have subdued hues, Barnwood designs, and simple typography. The “who, when, where, and why” details of your wedding should be very clear and easy to read, regardless of how you style it. Additional things to include in your invitation, as well as how to address wedding invites, are included below. The names of the hosts (so guests know who to thank! ), the couples’ names, detailed data on the location and venue, and any post-ceremony plans that guests should be aware of should all be included in your wedding invitations.

In case any RSVPs are lost in the mail, don’t forget to include RSVP cards and use RSVP functions on your wedding website. Remember to save a couple of invitations for scrapbooking, crafting, or incorporating into a shadow box or photo book. Send thank-you notes to your guests after the wedding to show them how much you appreciate their love and support.
