Wedding Invite Wording

When searching for wedding invites, I think it is very important to pick the correct wording. I broke this down into two camps: Traditional and Modern. The Knot has a ton of articles that will break down all the different situations you could encounter when designing your wedding suite.

Traditional.

Mr and Mrs Bride’s Parents Name
Requests the Honor of your Presence
At the Wedding of their Daughter
Bride’s Name (First and Middle)
to
Groom’s Name (First, Middle & Last)


Wedding Date – Spelled Out (Saturday, the 21st of July)
Year – Spelled Out (Two Thousand Nineteen)
Time – Spelled Out (Half Past Three O’Clock in the Afternoon)

Ceremony Location
City and State of Ceremony Location

Examples: Minted is my favorite vendor for paper goods, so obviously all of my examples are from there 🙂

Modern.

Bride & Groom
Along with their parents, invite you to celebrate their marriage
Wedding Date
Ceremony Time
Ceremony Location
City and State of Ceremony Location
Formal Reception to Follow

Examples:

Surprise, surprise – I lean towards the traditional approach, a wedding is a formal event and feels fitting. My favorite (and what we used) invite verbiage is:

Mr and Mrs Bride’s Parents Name
and Mr and Mrs. Groom’s Parents Name
Invite you to the wedding uniting
Bride’s Name (First and Middle)
and
Groom’s Name (First and Middle)

Wedding Date – Spelled Out (Saturday, the 21st of July)
Year – Spelled Out (Two Thousand Nineteen)
Time – Spelled Out (Half Past Three O’Clock in the Afternoon)

Ceremony Location
City and State of Ceremony Location

No matter which wording style you select, information you should always include:
1. Who’s hosting the party
2. Names of the Bride and Groom
3. Date, Time and Location
4. RSVP Card (or a call to action to receive RSVPs back)
