Your wedding should be absolutely perfect and reflect who you are as a couple – yes, that includes everything down to the wording on your wedding invitations. When it comes to choosing your wedding invitation wording some brides go traditional, while others take a more modern wording approach.
Traditional Wedding Invitation Wording
If you are throwing a more formal affair, traditional wording is the way to go.
- Names of the bride’s parents or other hosts
- First name and last name of the couple including their titles: Sir, Lady, Dr., etc.
- Where the ceremony is to be held
- Date, month and year of the wedding
- Location of the reception
- Address to which guests should r.s.v.p
- An r.s.v.p. date
- Details of any dress code or theme
- Time guests can expect the day to come to an end
- Whether children are invited
Modern Wedding Invitation Wording
Modern wedding invitation wording is very short, sweet and to the point. This style wording simply announces your wedding and where you want people. Generally, there may not be a physical r.s.v.p. card included, but rather a website telling friends and family how to reply and stay connected with you. Like this cute wording:
Your love and friendship have
helped us become who we are.Together with our parents,
we invite you to share our joy
and support our love,
as we exchange vows and
celebrate our marriage.
Bride’s Name & Groom’s Name
