Wedding Invitation Wording Templates, Tips and Etiquette
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
