5 New Ideas For Wedding Invitation Wording

WeddingForward

Are you a contemporary bride that believes the rules of wedding etiquette are overrated in the invitation department? Relax, you are not alone and we have a great list of ideas to enhance your wedding invitation wording. Addressing the wedding invitations don’t have to follow a particular protocol. There is more than one way to address the invites and all that really matters is that it arrives in style. The important factor is that the full names of the bride and groom, host(s) of the event and the “request line” are all included on the invitation. Now that you know the basics of wedding invitation wording, here are a few ideas to give your invites the wow factor.

1. Relax The Parents’ Names

Omit to add proper surnames to the names of the parents. This is a very formal method that isn’t a requirement on the invites and it’s okay to not address the parents as Mr. or Mrs. Many parents find this to be appropriate in a casual wedding that is more relaxed or semi-formal.

2. Request Line Formality

Adjust the “request line” to accommodate the style of the wedding ceremony. A lot of couples are choosing to have their ceremonies in non-religious venues. They are opting for more casual and contemporary wedding venues. Consider wording the invitations with “pleasure of your company.”

3. Contemporary Request Line

Some brides and grooms are simply omitting the formal wording of the request line with a more contemporary type of wedding invitation wording. This style eliminates “the honor of your presence” and “pleasure of your company” completely. Instead, it is replaced with a more contemporary clause that gives the invitation a different appeal.

4. The Couples Clause

Many contemporary couples are assisting their parents in hosting their weddings and choose to omit the parents’ names altogether. The extra space is often utilized to display their emotional and financial support of the ceremony.

• Those couples who are hosting their wedding ceremony entirely on their own may choose to leave their parents’ names off the invitation. If the names of the parents aren’t included, it is always honorable to thank them with a toast during the reception.

Consider using the font that compliments the theme and doesn’t be afraid to have fun with the designs. There are several ways to enhance wording on the invites and this is also a great way to help guests remember the wow factor of the invites. Remember that the invitations can appear on a variety of types of paper, tri-fold, banner style, and even digital invites are making their mark on the wedding to-do list.

5. Personal Invites

Make your wedding invitations personal by reflecting your style through the wording. If family and friends know you as a carefree and fun person, reflect that with the wording style of the invites. It’s okay to sound excited and full of cheer when asking guests to attend your ceremony.
