Common Format Of The Wording

You may wonder about the formats when preparing such kind of bridal invitation wording. Since the bride’s parents are going to invite, the name of the parents will usually put at the very beginning of the wording. In some cases, you may want to write a poem or a short sentence before the names. The name of the bride will follow the names of the parents. Next, the name of the groom will be put.

After the groom’s name, there are two choices. Some couples will put the names of the groom’s parents after the name of the groom. No matter these names will be put on the card or not, the next part will be the date and time of the wedding.

It is common to ask if the names of the groom’s parents should be put on the card. There is no definite answer to this question. Again, it is essential to discuss with your spouse-to-be and also the parents. Communication is always the key when preparing the invitation wordings.

Ideas To Prepare The Bridal Invitation Wording

As a matter of fact, it is always important to consider who is going to invite. You need to consider this issue very carefully. Other it will be difficult for you to make the wedding invitation etiquette right. This issue is probably the first thing you need to consider when you are preparing the wording of your invites.

There are in fact some cases it will be natural for the parents of the bride to invite. One of the reasons will be related to the financial issue of the wedding. If the bride’s parents are going to finance the whole wedding, it can be a good idea for them to invite. On the other hand, they may also become the ones to invite if the parents of the groom are decreased. Of course there can also be other options in this case. The bride and groom can decide to invite on their own for example. Usually, you can make this decision after you have discussed with your family members and your spouse-to-be.

At this point, you may ask if there is some information that is unique to this type of wording. In fact, the information should be similar to other types of wording. Not matter who is going to invite, it is important to include all the necessary information such as the date and venue of the event. Of course you may also need to see if you need to prepare other stationery items such as the RSVP cards.

Casual, Fun And Informal Wedding Invitation Wording

Without any surprise, casual wedding invitation wording will be different from a formal one. It will be more informal. You can even make it interesting. You do not need to follow the standard and formal format while you are preparing your fun wedding invitation wording. You can let your creativity fly.

Here are some examples if you want to make the wording of your invite casual:

Verse A

Amy and John are Tying the Knot Soon!
Join us as we Exchange our Vows,

Let us Drink a Toast
And Dance with Fun

June 13, 2013
at 19:00
Happy Together Bar and Restaurant

Verse B

the Rest of the Story?

Join us on August 20, 2017
at 20:00
Homey Lover Hotel

as Kate and Derek
Celebrate their Commitment

Let us Drink, Dance and Have Fun!

As you can see from the above, there is virtually no restriction when you prepare the wording. However, the wording should match the design and style of your wedding card design. If the design of it is a casual one, the text and message on the card will certainly be informal.

The above are some of the examples of informal wording you can consider. It is possible to make it something funny.

Fun Wedding Invitation Wording Ideas

In order to make your invitation message funny, you can try to make some jokes. This can be something interesting and your guests will love it.

Verse E

We are Getting Married very Soon!

Date: June 18, 2014
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Venue: The Avenue Pub

Come and Join us
or We will Unfriend you on Facebook (Just Kidding!)
We Hope to See you Coming!
Sandy and James

If you think that the above joke is a bit offensive (some people may think that), you can go for something a bit mild. Yet, you will still want to make fun out of it.

Verse F

Mary and Bob
are Legalizing their Relationship

You are Invited to be the Witness
on 27 March, 2015
at 18:30
Sunny Cafe

Verse G

Jeremy is going to have a new life with Kitty.

He knew that there will be some changes.
He did not know that he would need to pay for the Vera Wang dress.

But he is happy to accept the changes.

We would like to invite you to join us
and see the moment of change together.
on 30 April, 2016
at 13:00
Seaside Cafe and Restaurant
Help! Please reply!

The above are funny wedding invitation wording ideas with the use of jokes. A sense of humor is always needed. There is also another way to make it fun. However, more design skills will be required in this case. You can take a look at this example.

Verse H

The above sample shows that you can make it like an info-graphic, instead of creating normal wording!

Some More Consideration For Your Informal Wedding Card

Should My Wedding Be Informal As Well

A short answer to this question is a YES. Of course you can still make the event formal. However, the invitation will not match your theme. As a result, it is better to have a casual theme if the wording on the invites is informal. Your guests will not expect a formal event when they receive your invitation cards. They may not have their formal dressing on when they come to your party. To make everything consistent, you are always suggested to have an informal event. The party can be full of fun and your guests can really enjoy.

Let Your Creativity Fly

As discussed, there is no concrete rule when you prepare the message on the card. You can just create anything you want. You can write your own poem and incorporate it into the wording. The poem can be funny. You can write whatever you want as long as they are not something offensive.

Remember To Include The Basic Information

No matter you are creating fun, casual or informal wedding invitation wording, you must include all the basic information of your big day. This is the essence of your message. There is no point to make it funny if this information is not included. The date, time and venue should be written. This is probably the only rule you will have to follow!

Engagement Invitation Wording

There can be different variations when it comes to the engagement invitation wordings. In fact, this can be divided into three different scenarios – couple inviting, parents inviting and couple with parents inviting. Here are a few samples for your reference.

Patrick Price

dress code: smart casual

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 party in this case.

Tips Of Wedding Shower Invitation Wording

As discussed, there will be two different scenarios when you are planning for the wording of the shower. Remember, you will have to plan for them carefully. Brainstorming is very important. You can take the invitations of your friends as examples. You can also have a lunch with your friends and family members and ask for their opinions.

Information To Include

Usually, there is some information you have to include in your invitation. As in the case of the wedding invitation, you will have to mention the date, time and venue of the shower party. Besides, you may also include the topic and theme of the party.

The hosts of the party may not be the couple. If it is a couple’s shower, it is important to include the names of both the bride-to-be and groom-to-be. On the other hand, the name of the bride-to-be has to be included if it is a bridal shower.

If it is difficult to find the location of the venue, you may want to include a map as well. Be sure to put a contact number and the contact person on the card. If the guests cannot find their ways to the venue, they will be able to contact someone to seek help.

Make It Less Boring

You may think that it will be boring if you stick to some standard format of the wordings. It is very common to write phrases such as “You are cordially invited to”. However, you may find it boring when it comes to the wedding shower invitation wording. As a result, you can try to write something not so traditional. It can be something not so formal. You can certainly write something which is full of fun.

Besides, you do not need to make it wordy. Though you may want to write some interesting phrases, you will still need to make it clear and simple. You should try to keep it to less than 10 sentences. This will always be good for your bridal shower invitation wording. Another point to consider is the font to be chosen. Of course, it is essential to choose fonts which are not too boring. However, you have to remember that you need to choose a font which can be easily read.

Without any surprise, the above will be consider something relatively informal. Yet, it should be good enough when a destination wedding is concerned. Besides this sample, there are also some considerations while you are planning for the wordings of your destination wedding invitations. Let us discuss more in detail now.

Banking on Your Creativity for the Right Destination Wedding Invitation Wording

Choosing the right look and feel of an invitation card for that rare occasion like a wedding is no longer the hassle that it used to. No need to re-invent the well, so to speak, or hire the services of an art agency for the purpose. This can also be one of the services in a nuptial package offered by wedding consultants so the couples need not be bothered with the details of keeping the wedding smooth and a memorable moment for the guests, the families and the couple.

Your Thematic Choices

A simple online search on wedding invitations will turn up hundreds of sites that offer a wide array of designs under various themes for wedding card designs. There are designs themes for the seasons of the year or the closest holidays to represent the time of your wedding. There are designs falling under such thematic categories as cartoons, historic times like Baroque, Victorian, Colonial, etc., as well as nature, hobbies, movies and culinary specialties around the world.

But some of the most popular themes revolve around destinations and landmarks around the world. They include such picture perfect sites like the Roman Coliseum, the pyramids of Egypt, the game preserves of Africa, the waterfalls of Niagara, the monuments and edifices of history EU countries, the pristine beaches of tropical islands and the throbbing nightlife of many cities. Each design motif can aptly represent the location of your wedding or where the couples come from. Or it can be a tease on where the honeymoon will be held.

Choosing the Right Destination Wedding Invitation Wording

Whichever destination motifs you choose, the next thing to consider are the invitation wordings. Many online wedding invitation choices are simple. After choosing invite design, you simply fill out the form to personalize the card with the relevant details we’ve come to expect in a wedding invite – names and places for the church and banquet, along with the sponsors and the time and date.

Once done, the online site generates the final wedding invites and you only need to click the approval button to prompt the payment for printing and shipping. Many sites also ask for the kind of paper to be used or if there’s any die-cutting to be done. And that’s all there is to it.

But most sites will prompt you for the exact invitation wording you want to put on the invite rather than making it form-driven. This gives you a greater creative latitude to personalize the invite as you would not only put the details but compose the sentences yourself.

Like with other themes, destination wedding invitation wordings typically start with the header like: “You are cordially invited to be part of the celebration uniting the hearts of A and B.” The wordings often depend on who is inviting. The example is a dispassionate 3rd person doing the invite but it could be the parents of the groom or bride like “We, the parents of A and B request your presence to grace their conjugal union this Sunday….” The wording variations are as rich as your creative writing abilities can deliver.

How To Write Your Own Beach Invitation Wording

First of all, your personality is an important point to consider when creating your beach wedding invitations wording. You should try to create the wordings in a way that they will reflect your own personalities. In fact, this does not only apply to the wordings. It is also important for you to show your personalities in the design of the beach theme wedding invitations. By doing this you will be able to make the design original.

Information to be included

The words “sand” and “sea” are extensively used in this kind of wedding invitation cards. Besides, you should consider the main design of the card. Make sure that the design will reflect the ideas of being on the beach.

Fonts and typefaces

The fonts are important while you are designing the cards. Though this may not be directly related to the invitation wording, they are somehow correlated. The is no restriction when it comes to the typefaces or fonts. You can choose any font you want. There are brides and grooms who love to use fonts which are funny and relaxing. This will reflect the idea of being informal of the beach wedding.

There is no such thing as wrong wordings

Brides and grooms will worry that they do not write the beach wedding invitation wording correctly. The truth here is that there nothing will be wrong as long as you include all the necessary information. It is a relatively informal event at the end of the day. And this is also true for the wedding cards. You do not need to follow all the rules of wordings for traditional invitations. It is quite free when you are creating the wordings.

Write and plan it properly for your guests

As discussed, you have to express your personalities when you are preparing the beach invitation wording. You also have to consider your guests. Although you do not have to follow the traditional rules, you should not use some languages which are unsuitable either. This is especially true when you are sending the invitation to Your 90-year-old grandma.

Some More Tips On Wedding RSVP Wording

In fact, the wording on your response card can be quite simple. From the above example, you may see there is an M line. This line is for the guests to write their names. It is also possible for you to have wedding response card wording without the M line. Yet, this can sometimes be considered less formal. You will certainly want to stick to the M line if you want to make it more formal.

It is also common to ask guests to reply by going online. If you have a wedding website, you may want to arrange the guest list online. It will be good to ask the guests to reply online in this case. Even if you do not have a website, you can still ask your guests to reply by sending your emails. Usually, email RSVP card wording can be informal and simple. Of course you can also ask your guests to reply by giving you a phone call. Some brides and grooms may even put the email wedding RSVP wording on the main invite. This is because it will only be two lines of words. In this case, you do not even need to print the RSVP cards.

Mistakes to Avoid

There is a common mistake that can always be seen. There are brides and grooms who write “please RSVP”. This is something incorrect when it comes to the wedding RSVP wording. RSVP is in fact the short form of the French phrase “répondez s’il vous plaît” which means “reply please”. As you can see, the short form RSVP already bears the meaning of “please”. It will be strange if you add the word “please” before this short form. This is a mistake we must avoid.

Besides, some couples will forget to put the date on the card. When you are planning for the wedding response card wording, it is always important to let your guests know when they should reply you. You will ask your guests to reply before a specific date. If you do not set this date, you will find it hard to arrange the catering since you do not know the exact of guests who are going to attend.

Formal or Informal RSVP Card Wording

You may want to know whether your RSVP card wording should be formal or informal. The answer here is that you will need to consider your main wedding theme, as well as the style of the invitation card. If you are going to have a formal wedding, you will probably send a more traditional invitation to your guests. In this case, the wedding RSVP wording can be more formal. Of course it will be something less formal if your event is not something formal. As discussed, it will be something informal if you are going to ask your guests to reply online.

Ideas For Bridal Shower Invitation Wording

The above are some common examples and ideas you can consider when planning for the wording of the invitations. There are in fact a lot of ways to make the wording more creative. You can create the wording based on the foods to be served or the activities during the party. Of course the theme of the party can also help you to generate some creative wording. You should try to spend some time on planning for the wordings.

Important Notes About The Wording

No matter what kind of invitation it is, you will have to include some basic information. In the case of a bridal shower, of course it will be important to mention the bride-to-be. This is no doubt about it. Besides, you will also include the date and venue. Without any surprise, you will need to ask for the response from the guests. In this case, it will be important to include the name and phone number of the contact person. If it is possible, it will also be beneficial to put the email address on the card as well. Sometimes you may even include some clues of gifts on the invitation.

Make The Invitation Wording Creative

As mentioned, there can be a lot of ways to make the wording creative. Traditional, phrase such as “Please join us for a bridal shower honoring NAME OF BRIDE-TO-BE” will be put on the card. After this phrase, you will write the basic information of the party on the card. If you want to step away from such traditional bridal shower invitation wording, you can try something totally different.

For example, you can think about the hobbies of the bride. If she loves baking, you can certainly write something about it. You can write a phrase like “Love is just like baking and she finally gets the cake done”. This can make the bridal shower invitation wording a lot more interesting. Remember, this is only one example, you should try to think about some special characters of the bride and you will be able to get some nice and interesting wording ideas.

Some Other Thoughts

Traditional, the names of the people who throw the shower or party will not be mentioned in the invitation. Of course you will still mention the names if they are the contact person for RSVP. Yet, this is not a rule you have to follow strictly. You can certainly mention the names if you think it is appropriate to do so.

There are bridesmaids who want to make the shower party a surprise. There is nothing wrong to do so. The bride-to-be will certainly love it. Yet, it will be a good idea to mention on the invitation. This will make sure that the guests will not tell the bride-to-be about it. It will be a good idea to highlight phrases such as “It is a surprise” in this case.

Remember, there is no a single rule when you are planning the wording for the bridal shower. You can certainly be creative and create your own interesting wordings so that every guest, as well as the bride-to-be, will be amazed.

You can order the invitations when you are purchasing the main wedding invitations. This is certainly a very popular option. The prices of the cards will vary according to the number of cards you need and the design you love. Besides, it is totally alright for you to order the cards online. This can be excellent if you are going to order the wedding invitations from an online shop. Ordering all the stationery together can help you to save money. This is because the shops will usually offer some discounts when you order all the items at the same time.

You can also consider printing a quick and simple invitation if you want. This means that you can even print the cards yourself at home. Yet, you will still need to make sure that you will print an elegant card.

Usually, it is unexpected to receive an invitation for the rehearsal dinner. As the host of the dinner, you will need to send the invite a bit early so that the guests can prepare. So, it is also important that you start thinking about the invitation wording early so that you will be able to finish everything in advance!

Without any surprise, you will probably order the thank you cards when you order the main invitations. Yes, ordering all the stationery is always a good option. There are brides and grooms who may ask the vendor to print the notes on the cards. You should never do it. There is no point to pre-print the messages on the cards.

Wording of Wedding Announcements – The Basics

You can make the message on your announcement card personal. This is why you can make it quite casual. However, there are also some basics you have to include. Depending on the tone and formality of your cards, different types of information will need to be included. If your parents are going to announce the event, their names have to be mentioned. Some couples may decide to include the address of their new home. At the same time, there is information that must be included. It is a must to put your names and wedding date on the card.

When you prepare the wording for your invitations, you will usually include the detailed address of your wedding venue. Yet, you do not need to be so detailed for the wording of your announcement card. People who receive the cards are not invited. As a result, you do not really need to include the detailed address of the venue. If your wedding is a destination wedding, you may only need to let your friends know the destination. You do not even need to tell them the name of the resort or chapel in this case.

Some More Tips About Your Announcement Cards

Your friends may still send you gifts although they are not invited to your wedding. They may send you the gifts even before you send them the announcement cards. In this case, you can write some thank you notes on these cards. These means that the announcements will also be thank you cards. You may have to blend the wedding announcement wording with your thank you message. Alternatively, you can also have your separated thank you message handwritten on the cards. If your friends send you the gifts after they receive the cards, you will send them Thank You Cards as soon as you get the gifts.

More Tips To Plan For The Invitation Wordings

wedding invitation wordingThe above are the samples of wording you will want for your invites. Of course you do not just copy these example, you need to make some alterations and write your own wordings. At this point, you will want to know how you can make the alterations.

Here, there are some tips you have to know in order to write the wording! With all these tips, it will be a lot easier for you to write your invitation. So, make sure that you will read these tips. They will certainly help you in order to prepare the best wording for your invites.


When you write normally, you will use a lot of punctuations. Here, I would like to talk especially about the use of periods. Normally, you will use periods at the end of each sentence. However, the case is different when it comes to the invitation wording. If you have ever seen some wording samples, you will certainly find out that there is no period after the sentences. In fact, periods are seldom used even when the wording looks like a whole paragraph.

Of course, you may still see the periods. Yet, they will be used after abbreviations such as Mrs. and Mr. etc. Though there will not be periods after each sentence. You will still use commas. Usually, you will see them between the date and also the address of your event.


As discussed, you will not see periods at the end of the sentences. Yet, you will still use capitals from the first word of each sentence. As a matter of fact, it is not necessary to capitalize the first letter of the first word of each line. You will only try to capitalize the first word of each sentence. Besides, the first letter of title abbreviations will be capitalized. This is also true for the names and date of the wedding.

The above ideas usually apply to some traditional wedding invitation wording etiquette. The case can be different when you are planning for the wordings for a more modern design. In this case, there are usually two options. The first option is that none of the letters will be capitalized. This can help to make the invitations unique. On the other hand, some couples will choose to capitalize the first letter on every verse line. You should consider these two ideas if you plan to have some modern designs.

Numbers and Words

When you see some the wording samples, you will see that the date is usually written in full, this means that you will not write something like “12, Aug. Instead”, you will need to write things like “the twelfth of August”. Yet, you may use numbers when it comes to the street address.

You may have seen wordings like “request the honour of your presence” when you receive an invitation. You may wonder why “houour” is used. Usually, this will be used for more formality. Of course you can also use “honor”. Yet, you should go for the former if you want to make the unique wedding invitation wording really formal.

Wording For Wedding Invitations – Informal Wedding

Last but not the least, the above ideas are usually for invitations which are more traditional and formal. In this case, the etiquette is very important. Again, if you want to go for something more modern or you are the kind of person who is more casual, you can create your own unique wordings.

It can be very flexible. You can write in any style you want as long as the wedding invitation verses include all the information of your wedding. You may even try to create something funny if you want. Although you will be creating less formal verses or wording for wedding invitations, you will still have to think about the design theme of your invitations. For example, the wedding invitation verses can be related to Halloween if you are going to have a Halloween themed wedding. of course the design card will also be related to this theme.

As a matter of fact, you can even try to blend the wording to the design style of your invitation card. If you are going to use the flip-flop invitation design for your beach wedding, you may want to write a verse which is related to the idea of flip-flops. Again, the baseline will be that you will include all the necessary information of your wedding. If you can really do it, you will be able to make your invitation totally special because both the design and wordings are unique.
