Wedding Invitation Wording




wedding-invitationsWedding invitations are one of the most important elements in wedding preparations. One needs to make sure that the proper etiquette in writing wedding invitation wording is observed. Details of the wedding must be clearly stated in the wedding invitation including the hosts, bride and groom, venue, time and date of the wedding. One can also include the theme of the wedding in designing the invitation.

Wedding invitation wording may vary depending in the situation. Also, the wording of your wedding invitation may be different depending on the theme you choose, whether casual, traditional or modern. Most of you might get confused on writing the proper wedding invitation wording since your situation may be different from others.

That’s the reason why it’s the bride’s parents who are requesting for the pleasure of having your company in the wedding of their daughter.

Wedding Invitation Wording Etiquette

As mentioned earlier, there are some considerations to put in mind when writing an invitation. Here are some tips and guidelines that will help you keeping yourself right in the track.

  • No punctuation should be used with the exception of courtesy titles such as Mr. and Dr.
  • Numbers, dates and time must be spelled out. For example, instead of March 21, spell it out as the twenty-first of March. You don’t have to add the year but if you must, spell it out as well, such as two thousand thirteen for 2013.
  • You don’t have to capitalize each word every line. Remember, capitalized words mean that they are the start of the sentence.
  • Limit the use of abbreviation. If you need to include commonly abbreviated words like days of the week, or street, make sure that you write it in its full spelling.
  • Limit the use of contradicting words like “Don’t”, Can’t” etc. If you must, write it as “Do not” or Cannot.
  • The RSVP must be the address of the hosting party.
  • Send the letter ahead of time to give the guests preparation time for the wedding.
  • Always consider who will be hosting the wedding and start from there
  • Make sure that the details are completed before sending out your invitation.
  • In writing dates for the RSVP, include some time allowance. Make it at least 3 weeks before the wedding. This will give you enough time to finalize the number of the guests. Finalizing head count is usually about one week before the wedding
  • If you must to include the dress code for the wedding, you can write it in the bottom right corner of the wedding invitation. You can include whether it will be “casual attire”, cocktail attire, etc.
