Wedding Invite Wording

You want your wedding invitation to give the right impression of your big day. It's the first glimpse your guests will get into your chosen theme, style and colouring. Are you having a large formal wedding or a small knees up in your local with your nearest and dearest? You want your invitation to reflect you as a couple and the flavour of your big day so deciding how to word your wedding invites can be trickier than you first imagined.
On top of injecting personality into your wedding invitations, you need to think who you want them addressed by? Would you and your fiance like to personally invite your guests or follow tradition and have your parents send out the invitations and invite your guests on your behalf?
Are you inviting all of your guests to the ceremony and reception or will you need separate day time and evening wedding invitations?
You also need to consider the design of the invitations you are ordering and how much space you have to layout your text. Typically the more text and information you include on your invitation, the smaller the font will get. This is where separate RSVP cards, money poems and the like come into their own.
To help you we have devised some examples of wedding invitation wording and layouts below that you may find handy as a guide.
Remember to include the vital pieces of information such as names, date, time, venues and how to RSVP.
