Day invitation wording

 

The actual invitation wording is the most important part of your invitation. Wording can vary depending upon how formal your celebration will be and also who is ‘hosting’ your wedding.

Your invite is sent from whoever is hosting the wedding; traditionally the bride’s parents, in more recent times it is quite common that the hosts are the bride and groom themselves.

There is no set rule for this, but we have shown some examples of formal and informal wordings below (these samples just show the wordings, when creating your invitations we will use the layout and fonts from your chosen invitation design). You do not have to stick to these and we are more than happy to use any alternative wordings.
