Wedding Invitations Wording

Wedding invitations wording made easy if you are stuck on what to write on your wedding invitations. On this page you will find wedding invitation text for a formal invitation and ideas for wording wedding invitations when the wedding is hosted by the bride and groom themselves.

How you word your invitation is something you need to consider very carefully as it sets the tone of your event. My wedding was very informal and so my text was quite casual.  On the other hand,  if your wedding is to be an elaborate affair you might want the wording to reflect this.

Don't worry, there are many ways of phrasing your invitation wording. It all depends on who is hosting the wedding of course. Nowadays it is quite modern for the bride and groom to be the hosts rather than the bride's parents.

Whether you go for formal, informal, or creative wording for wedding invitations really depends on the type of invitation you have chosen. Obviously if your invitation is very modern then the wording needs to reflect this.

Below you will find wedding invitation wording samples for you to use.

Remember, there is no right and wrong way. Choose what you feel comfortable with. Another suggestion would be to add love quotes or poems.

Remember to make your invitations well in advance so that you can send them out six weeks before the day. Your save the date cards can be sent out up to 6 months in advance.
