Trend Report: Invitation Wording


What most couples don’t realize about their wedding invitations is that its not the colours or the fonts that are important. It really is all about the wording. Your wedding invitation wording sets the tone for your guests. Having a casual wedding? Your invitation probably shouldn’t start with ‘The honour of your presence is requested…’ And a formal invitation should not show the wedding date as ‘September 26, 2014′. These are just small cues that let your guest know what to expect, even how to dress for the occasion.

Your wording should always include details like the date and time of the ceremony. Make sure you include the location information as well as whether it will be an indoor or outdoor event (this can be listed on a separate information card or on your wedding website). Will dinner be included in the reception or are you just serving hor d’oeuvres? Be sure to cover the Who, What, Where, and When.

After you have inserted those details, try to make the wording personal to you and your fiance. Don’t be afraid to have some fun with it if your wedding is going to be more casual. Even if you are having a formal wedding, insert some fun lines on your response card. Your guests will appreciate the extra effort.
