We know you’re stressed, we know that getting everything ready for a wedding is hard. But we’re here to help you relax and let us get you on the right track with our guide to wedding invitation wording. Unique wedding invitation wording can be tough to pin down. Our exclusive, free wedding invitation guide will make quick work of striking the perfect, personal note for your one of a kind wedding invitation wording.
First let’s go over some of our best tips for brides looking for inspiration for their wedding invitation wording:
Before starting on your invitation wording, map out what elements you want to include. For example, do you want to list out the bride’s and groom’s parent’s names? You may agree with many couples today who feel that listing out parent’s names is a great way to honor and pay respect to the people who brought you up. Keep in mind that this can end up taking a lot of real estate on your invitations. If either of your parents have divorced and remarried, you will need to consider the extra space needed to accommodate all of the names. But this is a great way to show the love and support you and your future spouse have received from your families!
Do you need your guests to RSVP so that you have a total head count for ordering food, party favors, etc.? Do you want to include any special instructions for guests? Where is your gift registry? Think through what information your wedding invitees will need and nail down exactly what needs to fit on your invitations and insert cards.
One of the best ways we have found to prep for writing your invitation wording is by looking at new wedding invitation samples from other recent weddings. This can give you lots of ideas and help you find what type of wording you do and don’t like. Do you want an elegant formal style? Or would you prefer your invites to be more casual, or even including some elements of humor to create a light, playful vibe for your wedding? The Invitation Maker has many examples for you to browse when looking for invite word inspo. Get your creative juices flowing by seeing what other brides just like you are doing with their wedding invitation wording.
Be open-minded. Take your time writing and rewriting your invites in different styles to see how they look and feel to you. Resist the urge to sit down and write and finalize your invitation wording in one day. Write some ideas down first and then mull over them. Look for inspiration in a variety of places, spend a few minutes doing Google searches to see what other brides have come up with. If you are feeling adventurous or have a favorite movie star, try a Google search for “celebrity wedding invitations” or by the celebrity’s name to see what some of the world’s biggest celebs have done for their wedding invites. You will find that there is a wide variety of everything from unique fun invites to classic traditional styles from the stars. Once you have some ideas written down, ask friends and family for their feedback, and of course ask the groom if he wants to help!
Unlike some of the other drudgery involved in a wedding (coming up with, and then whittling down, a guest list, anyone?) writing your invites can and should be fun! With The Invitation Maker, you will have endless examples and a supportive team to help you get everything right. Check out our free Ultimate Guide to Wedding Invitation Wording.
