Not sure where to start or what to include? Here’s a cheat guide to help you with your Wedding Invitation wording
When wording wedding invitations, it’s important to convey the necessary information clearly and politely. Here’s a traditional template for wording wedding invitations:
- Host Line: If the wedding is quite formal, begin with the hosts’ names. This can be the couple’s parents or the couple themselves if they are hosting the wedding.
- Request Line: Use a formal phrase to request the presence of the guests. For example, “Request the honour of your presence” or “Request the pleasure of your company” or for a less formal option “Would love you to join them”
- Names of the Couple: Include the names of the couple getting married. There’s no need for surnames unless the wedding is very formal
- Date and Time: Clearly state the date, day of the week, and the time of the ceremony.
- Location: Provide the name and address of the wedding venue.
- Reception Information: If the reception is held at a different location, mention it along with the address. You can also include details about the cocktail hour or any other events related to the wedding.
- RSVP: Indicate how and by when guests should RSVP. Include a separate response card or provide a phone number for texting or email address for guests to respond.
- Dress Code: This is an option but helpful for your guests in choosing their attire.
- Additional Information: Any other relevant details, such as directions, accommodation suggestions, or a wedding website, can be included on separate enclosure cards.
- Closing: Conclude with a polite phrase, such as “We look forward to celebrating with you” or “Join us as we begin our journey together.”
Remember to adapt the wording to your specific circumstances and preferences, whether you want a formal or more casual tone. It’s also recommended to proofread the invitations and seek feedback from others to ensure clarity and correctness. And, last but not least – There’s no need for punctuation!
