Introduction

Sending out an invitation for anything can be stressful, but even more so when it comes to wedding invite wording. Many couples find themselves stumped and unsure of where to begin. Not to worry; here is everything you need to know to craft this important invitation perfectly. 

Getting Started

Before you start designing, it is essential to write down all the logistics so you don’t forget any information after you hit print or send.

  1. It is good to start by asking yourself what type of wedding you are having, as the wedding invite should try to match this aesthetic. For example, vintage, garden, modern, or maybe more casual.
  2. Next, ask yourself who and how many people you are inviting. This is also a good time to set a budget, keeping in mind each wedding invitation can cost anywhere from €2-8+. 
  3. Write down everyone you are inviting, this is also a good time to ensure and start collecting all of your guest’s mailing addresses to send the invites to.

Wedding Invitation Structure

Now that the groundwork is been laid, here is all the information that should be worded in a simple manner on the wedding invites.

The Opening

Most importantly, start with the name of the bride and groom at the top!

The Details

Next, make sure to include the start time, date, and location (a specific address is best to limit confusion) of the ceremony and reception.

RSVPs

If you would like people to RSVP to know the exact numbers, leave a phone number or email where they can reply yes or no with how many will be in attendance.

Fine Print

Any other important information that may be specific to your wedding such as a dress code, preferences on children attending, dietary warnings, parking instructions, and so on.

Wedding Invite Wording Examples

Short & Sweet

One of the most popular ways to go with wedding invites is the short and sweet route. If you play it safe and keep the invite simple it will avoid confusion and tons of questions from the guests down the road.

A short and sweet wedding invite wording could include:

Christine & Thomas Allen invite you to celebrate their wedding

Date: Saturday, 27 August 2022 starting at 2 o’clock p.m. 

Location: Barberstown Castle, Barberstown Castle, Straffan, County Kildare W23 CX40 Ireland

Reception will be held after the ceremony

Kindly RSVP to [email or phone] by 15 August 2022

Elegant

Opting for a more fancy wedding invitation is a great choice if you have a bigger wedding invite budget and are looking to really impress your guests. If you are hosting a glitzy wedding, an elegant wedding invite is a perfect addition.

An elegant wedding invite wording could go like this:

Christine & Thomas Allen request the pleasure of your company to celebrate their wedding

Saturday, 27 August 2022 starting at 2 o’clock p.m. 

Barberstown Castle, Barberstown Castle, Straffan, County Kildare W23 CX40 Ireland

Reception will be held after the ceremony

Dress code: black tie

Kindly RSVP to [email or phone] by 15 August 2022

Sappy

Some couples may be inclined to take the sappy route with their invites, which is understandable as a wedding is a very special and emotional day. A good way to increase the sappiness could be to include a romantic photo of the bride and groom on the invite which is sure to pull on the guest’s heartstrings.

Here is the best way to word a sappy wedding invitation:

Christine & Thomas Allen request your presence at the ceremony and celebration of their marriage

Saturday, 27 August 2022 starting at 2 o’clock p.m. 

Barberstown Castle, Barberstown Castle, Straffan, County Kildare W23 CX40 Ireland

Affordable

While people typically send printed wedding invites to the guest’s home addresses, a more affordable option is to send a virtual invite. Evite is one of the many online platforms that provide free and premium options that you can design and send to your guest’s email addresses which avoids the headache of mailing. Virtual invites allow guests to RSVP after viewing the card which makes counting the final numbers much easier for a bride and groom. 

Evite has templates in place but the wedding invite wording could include:

The Allen’s are getting married Saturday, 27 August 2022, 2 o’clock p.m. 

Barberstown Castle, Barberstown Castle, Straffan, County Kildare W23 CX40 Ireland
