Wedding Invitation Wording Samples to Use When the Bride and Groom Are Inviting


By JoDitt Williams 

One of the most important steps in the process of ordering your wedding invitations is writing the wedding invitation wording.

Formal wedding invitations should follow proper wedding invitation etiquette. All invites, whether formal, casual or traditional or non-traditional should include the following:

  • Bride's and Groom's full names (including middle names for formal invites)
  • Day and date of the wedding
  • The year should be written out on the next line following the date
  • Time of the wedding
  • Location of the wedding (formal wedding invitations usually just include the name of the church or building, while less formal or casual wedding invitations might also include the street address)
  • City and State (do not include zip code)

Those are the essentials, the things that you absolutely MUST include in your wedding invitation wording. Other than that, you can be very creative with the rest of the wording. If you are having a non-traditional wedding, do not feel like you must follow all of the rules of etiquette. You can add a favorite poem, scripture or verse. Or you could write something to reflect your own personal story of how you met and why you are getting married. You could even use a verse that relates to the season in which you are getting married.

Some other things you must think about when writing your wedding invitation wording are things like:


* Who is doing the inviting. (Bride's parents, Bride's and Groom's parents, Bride and Groom, Children of Bride and Groom, etc.)

* If the Bride's or Groom's parents are deceased
* If the Bride's or Groom's parents are divorced
* If it is a second (or third or fourth) marriage
* If the wedding is being held in a Church or at a Home or other non-church location

Here are some samples of wedding invitation wording where the Bride and Groom are doing the inviting:

Again, these are just samples of wedding invitation wording. Brides and grooms can get creative and create their own unique wording for their wedding invitation. But these are the basics.

If the wedding is more casual, rather than formal, the wording on the wedding invitation can be more casual as well and does not necessarily have to follow all of the proper wedding invitation etiquette rules.

One thing to keep in mind though, is that most people are constantly in a hurry and tend to skim whatever they are reading. So, you might want to keep your wording fairly basic.

Tip: Make sure to get someone who has never seen your wedding invitation before to proof read the final copy. They will often find errors which you have missed because you have become too familiar with the wording. Ask them to check the date with a calendar to make sure the date is correct. They should also check for spelling errors as well as grammar. Have them read it out loud to see if everything flows and makes sense.
