A little uncertain about how to word your wedding invitations? Our handy guide will help you to get started….

Choosing the right wording for your wedding invitations can sometimes be a little stressful. Your wedding invitations will give your guests an idea of the tone and style of your wedding so choosing the right wording is important. In order to get it right you really just need to be able to answer these two questions:

  1. Who is hosting the wedding?
  2. What is your invitation wording style?

Who is hosting the wedding?
The couple
The parents of the bride and groom
The couple and their parents
The bride’s parents

What is your invitation wording style?
Formal
Informal
