From the above, you can see how you should plan for the wordings in different cases. When you are reading verses A to D, you may also realize that the first two are more casual while the other two are more formal. You can choose the one which will suit your preferences and theme of the event.

Tips To Announce The Engagement

In fact, you will send the invitations to your friends even before you start planning for the wedding. In the past, engagement could be something very formal and the engagement invitation wording will also be very formal. Yet, the case can be different these days. It is also common to make the engagement part a more intimate and informal event.

There are people who want to give their friends a surprise when they announce the engagement. In this case, the invitation wordings will totally be different from the above samples. You will not talk about the engagement in the invitations. Instead, you will just try to invite your friends to a normal part. Then you will announce your engagement in the party. It is just a matter of preferences. You can certainly choose something you prefer. The only thing is that you have to remember that you may not really need an engagement invitation if you are going to announce it in the party without letting your friends to know that before the party.

Engagement Invitation Wording Etiquette

Without any surprise, there is some etiquette you need to know when you are planning for the wordings of your invitation. In fact, there is no fixed rule when you are planning for the wordings. You can go for the idea of a formal wording if you are not planning to surprise your guests.

Of course you may not go for the idea of formal wordings if you are going to have something more casual in your party. To this end, you can try to write something more interesting when you are planning for your engagement invitation wording. For instance, you can write “You’re invited to hear Amy and Tony’s Big News!” This can be something interesting. If you still want to give your guests a bit of surprise, you can just say that there will be big news without mentioning the engagement. You will only announce that in the part in this case.
