Wedding Invitation Wording Examples


These are a few samples of what you might write on a wedding invitation. There is something called Wedding Invitation Etiquette that applies more to super formal wedding invitations, I don't know much about it except I remember reading that if your wedding ceremony is going take place in a church or similar then you write "request the honour of your presence" otherwise you write "request the pleasure of your company" and writing the dates out in full.

I hardly think that if you're on a creative journey to making your own invitations, you should worry to much about etiquette. I like to aim for making sure the dates are correct, it makes sense and there are no spelling easy task. But if this sort of thing matters to you then you may want to Google a few sites about 'Wedding Invitation Etiquette'
