Wedding Invitation Wording

Updated on March 23, 2015

Finding The Right Words for Your Wedding Invitations

The wedding invitation wording is simply the words that simply say, “can you come to our wedding?” However, the wedding reception invitation wording is not that simple. There are traditions to follow if you want your wedding to work out as you have planned. You may consider a unique wedding invitation wording, but you have to consider that these words that you will give to your friends and relatives will be the kick off point to your wedding. It will become the tone of your celebration until the end of the reception.

If you have already seen a wedding invitation wording sample, you might notice that the invitation is often formal and the words are very specific. Tradition would suggest if you are planning a formal wedding, your invitation should also be formal. The wedding shower invitation wording could be loose since it will be a party, but wedding program and invitation wording should reflect what your plans for your wedding could be.

For example, the destination wedding invitation wording should reflect the island you are going to, or the place and atmosphere where you will be staying.

Be specific as to who you are inviting by including all the names of the people you want to attend. If you want only the parents in the family to attend, don’t mention “and family”. In fact “and family” should never be mentioned. Instead write all the names of the people you want to attend.

Free Wedding Invitation Wording Samples

You can always look online for free wedding invitation wording. Card invitation sample wedding wording is always there, and you will be taught the proper things to write for your wedding. A wedding invitation wording example is all you need to set the tone for your perfect dream wedding. Proper research and preparation can never go wrong, and it is important to have preparation for any wedding. The preparation will ensure the success of your wedding and kick off your life successfully as a couple.

Also, you can ask for a company that can give you all the things that you need for your wedding celebration. From gifts to ideas to wordings, they will be there. In doing wedding invitation wording, it is a great help for you to remind your visitors of the things that will happen and the tone of celebration that you will have. You will have inputs and advice on what are the best words to place and how you are going to place them.

      It's true that the wording in the wedding invitation card will set the mood and theme of your wedding. And if you are not good in coming up with the right words to write in your wedding card, going online will solve the problem.

      These are some gorgeous examples of wedding invitations. I love the pink and white 'we do' invitation. It seems that more parents seem to be left out of the invitations these days when it comes to wording - I've noticed that since the age of the bride/groom is older, they tend to pay for a lot of it themselves and maybe that's why? I'm not quite sure, but these are some excellent examples of what to write on wedding invites. Thanks for sharing this lens!
