How to Word Wedding Invitations


Modern couples have so many options and etiquette rules to consider when it comes to wording their invitations that it can feel overwhelming. It’s no wonder one of the most common questions I am asked by my clients is, “how in the world do we word our invitation?” Well, my good friend Alexandra of Aerialist Press & Foiled Invitations is here to take out all the guessing. Don’t miss the pretty infographic she provides, making it all really simple!

If you’re reading along here, you’re probably at least in the beginning stages of your wedding planning, or maybe you’ve even gotten to the point of selecting a color palette and considering invitation styles. While the fun, design-related to dos are easy to check off the top of your list, nailing down final invitation wording is probably not a priority – especially when you aren’t sure about all those etiquette rules you’ve never had to think about before. Sound about right?

If you’re like most couples, you’ll find yourself asking all of the usual questions regarding proper wedding invitation verbiage but without a great starting place for answers.
