Wedding Invitation Wording Etiquette Guides

Finally have got your adorable wedding invitation style? Next step you need to do is wording your wedding invitations! It might seem simple but actually you will fell a little tricky because of the etiquette rules and a couple of situations. Here we’ve put together some practical guides to help you headed in the right direction and pick the words that will set the perfect tone for your wedding day.

BASIC ELEMENTS FOR AN  WEDDING INVITATION WORDING

1. HOST LINE

The first line of the invitation is dedicated to the host of the wedding, also known as the party covering the expenses. Traditionally, the bride’s parents are the hosts of the wedding, and are named at the top of the invitation, even for very formal affairs. These days, however, more and more couples are either paying for the wedding themselves (in this case, you can omit the host line entirely) or receiving financial contributions from parents on both sides—in this case, you can list all parents’ names or opt for something simpler like, “Together with their parents” or “Together with their families.”

2. REQUEST LINE

There are many ways to ask for the pleasure of your guests’ company. The British spelling of “honour” traditionally indicates the ceremony will be held in a church or another house of worship.

3. COUPLES LINE

When listing the names of the couple, the bride’s name typically precedes the groom’s. Most commonly, the bride’s first and middle names are used while the groom’s first and last names are used. This is, of course, all up to personal style. Whether you’re opting for formal or casual invitations will determine how you display your names.

4.DETAILS LINES

The details are the most important part of your wedding invitations. Keep them simple and stick to the basics! You’ll need to include the date, time, location, and address. In many formal invitations, couples will spell out the date and time.

5.RECEPTION LINE

Very formal invitations include this information on a separate card. Otherwise, it can be printed on the wedding invitation itself if there is room; if the ceremony and reception are held in the same location, you may print “and afterward at the reception” or “reception immediately following.” When the reception is elsewhere, the location goes on a different line.
