Figuring out how to word your invitations can be tricky. With all the etiquette rules and customs, it can seem overwhelming. But don’t worry – we are here to help you! Read through this post to find all the information you will need to write your invitations.
What Information Do You Need?
- Bride and groom’s names
- Bride and groom’s parents’ names
- Date, time, and location of ceremony
- Date, time, and location of reception/open house
- Registry information
Once you have this information, it is simply a matter of plugging it in. You can change the wording based on how formal or casual you want your invitations to be.
Formal Invitation Wording
- The invitation should be issued by the hosts i.e. “Dwayne and Mary Smith are pleased the announce…”
- Include all formal titles, such as Dr., Mr., and Mrs.
- Spell the date out, i.e. “Monday, the fourth of July two thousand thirteen”
- Do not include registry information on the invitation.
Informal Invitation Wording
- Feel free to play around with the placement of names. You can put both sets of parents together or omit them, it’s up to you.
- Keep it casual. No need for fancy descriptive words, keep it short and too the point.
- Include registry information to make it easy for guests to find the perfect gift.
- Mix up the order of information
