We’ve the perfect guide to help you pick the right words and choose what to say that will create the perfect tone for your wedding day.

There is one questions you need to ask yourself before deciding on your invitation wording:

  • Is your wedding going to be a formal and traditional day or a more informal affair?

The style of your wedding will set the tone for your wedding invitation wording. More formal and traditional affairs are best kept to formal language in the invitation. It gives guests an idea of what to expect on the day.

If it is a less formal occasion, you have scope to be a bit more cheeky or inventive with your wording – in fact, the possibilities are endless.

Whatever you do, make sure you include the following items on the invitation:

  • What does the invitation cover? Include whether the invite is for the wedding ceremony and reception, reception only or evening reception only.
  • Name & Location of the Ceremony & Reception Venue – you want people to be able to find you!
  • Date and Time. It can be an idea to word the time as “3pm sharp” for civil ceremonies where the bride is not allowed be late.
  • RSVP – this should include details of where the reply should be sent. If you are not including an RSVP card, then an email address & phone number for RSVPs is becoming the most common option.
  • RSVP deadline – usually 4 weeks before the wedding. It will depend on your venue or caterer when the final numbers are needed.
