Wedding Invitation Wording

When it comes to your wedding invitation, the most important elements would essentially be the wedding design and the wedding invitation wording. The wedding design can be anything you want it to be, according to your wedding theme and vision, but when it comes to the wedding invite wording, there are norms to follow, as well as etiquette. Many of us are confused as to what should be included, but we shall make it cleared to you, with the following information.

Traditionally, the wedding invitation wording can be broken down into several sections and segments, which include the following in that order;

  1. Proper Name of the Hosts
  2. Request Line
  3. Relationship of the Host to the Bride
  4. Bride’s Name (Middle Name if she has one)
  5. The Groom’s Name
  6. The Date in written form
  7. The time of the day and wedding
  8. The Name of Wedding Venue
  9. The Reception Line RSVP Information

Bride groom wedding invitation wording

If you look at each section or segment individually, there are various ways in which you can phrase them, to make up your wedding invitation wording.

Proper Name of the Hosts

The Hosts can be anyone, but if the parents of the bride and groom are either divorced, separated, remarried or widowed, it gets a little more complicated, especially when phrasing your wedding invitation wording. You may have any of the following, and by doing so the respective sample for the phrasing should be put to use;

Bride’s & Groom’s Parents are Hosting

Mr. and Mrs. John Smith

And

Mr. and Mrs. Mark Jones

The Bride & Groom are Hosting

Ms. Jane Smith

And

Mr. Joseph Jones

Bride, Bride’s Parents, Groom, Groom’s Parents are Hosting:

Ms. Jane Smith

and

Mr. Joseph Jones

together with their parents

Mr. and Mrs. John Smith

And

Mr. and Mrs. Mark Jones

 

The rest of wedding invitation wording would include the likes of the following:
