Wording your wedding invitations can be tricky, especially if many members of your family are included in the planning process. No matter what your family situation is, here are a few samples of how to word your wedding invitations. With examples for traditional mother & father announcements from including one (or both!) step-parents, Wedivite has a wedding invitation wording sample for whatever your situation! Perhaps you & your fiance are throwing the celebration yourselves, or your siblings are heavily involved. Read on for how to word your wedding invitations.

In every couple’s planning process, comes the point of writing an invitation. But what should you put in? Will you go formal traditional style, or make it a little bit more fun? In the end, it comes down to what kind of wedding are you having. If you have a lot of older/traditional guests, you might wanna go the traditional path. If you have a mixed crowd with a less formal event, you can feel comfortable sending a fun, informal invite. Think of the invitation as the face of your event, so maybe try to connect the entire wedding concept in the invitation as well.

When it comes down to it, the wedding invitation needs to have all of the essential wedding information on it. Whatever type of invitation you choose, we’re here to help you out with some traditional and non-traditional wedding invitation wording formats.
