Autumn Wedding Invitation Wording
Wedding invitation wording can be a tricky process.
Finding the proper etiquette for phrasing your invitations
may be the most complicated part of creating them. There are,
however, some simple tips that will take some of the intricacy
out of writing your invitation text.
The first thing to remember for proper wedding
invitation wording is simple courtesy. Always use full names,
not nicknames. Never use abbreviations for times, dates or
places in your wedding invitation wording. For instance, if
your wedding is located on Church Street, make sure you spell
out the word “Street” completely. The only exceptions
to this rule are the words Saint (St.), Mount (Mt.) which
can be used either way. It also common practice to use titles
(like Mr., Miss, Ms., or Mrs.) whenever appropriate. When
in doubt always use a title. Formal wedding invitation wording
is always in third person, and lists the name of the hosts
(whether they be the bride’s or the groom’s family)
first. An example of this wedding invitation wording is as
Mr. and Mrs. Todd Elders
request the honor of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
Mr. Geoffrey Gene Feldman
A less traditional wedding invitation wording could replace,
“honor of your presence” with “pleasure
of your company”. The latter wording is often used for
smaller, more intimate weddings – such as those that
take place at home. If you’re the kind of person who
prefers an alternative style, wedding invitation wording can
take on any aspect that you would like. Just remember to tell
people where and when the wedding is, and let your heart do
the writing. If you’re still unsure of just what you
want to say, professionals are readily available to help you
with your wedding invitation wording
