Wedding Invitations Wording

When it comes time to come up with the wording for your wedding invitation it is best to start with the basics and go from there. A typical wedding invitation includes the following information: 1) the hosts 2) the request line 3) the names of the bride and groom 4) date 5) time 6) location 7) reception information 8)R.S.V.P. information. It sounds so easy but step 1 – just naming the hosts can be tricky for many couples.

I thought that Minted had some great tips on invitation wording and some great samples too.

I also found that just reading the text on the sample invitations and jotting down little phrases or words that you like it really helpful.

Wedding Invitations Etiquette

Wedding etiquette has certainly evolved over the years. With more and more blended families, people getting married later in their life, and people getting married more than once, there are often those sticky situations you just aren’t so sure about. I hope these resources help you with your wedding invitations and beyond. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you that any family drama will be kept to a minimum!
