There’s a lot to think about when it comes to creating your wedding invitations. You’ll want to avoid spelling and grammatical errors, and ensure all formalities are considered. Your wedding will be one of the most important events of your life—and your guests will be a huge part of it—so you’ll want to make sure the invitations are perfect.
The number one thing to consider when creating your wedding invitations is the theme of your wedding. The wording should suit your style, and the design should set the tone of the occasion for your guests. It will be the first look into the colours, fashions and vibes to expect on the big day.
Spell it out
Whether your wedding will be casual or a formal affair, every word on your invitation should be spelled out. Titles like ‘Mr.’ or ‘Mrs.’ are fine to use, but the event time, date and year should be spelled out in full. The same rule applies to writing out addresses—spell out the street number.
Know how to use commas and periods
While some wedding invitations may have each line of text punctuated, this isn’t the norm! Instead of using commas and periods, use line breaks. They’re less harsh, and make your invitations sound more, well, inviting! You may, however, use commas within sentences to separate information.
Know when to use last names
For the bride and groom, last names aren’t needed if their parents’ names are included on the invitation. Doing so would be considered redundant and repetitive. And for wording, remember—if your parents are hosting the wedding, the invite should read accordingly.
Request attendance appropriately
There are a few options for requesting your guest’s attendance on the invitation. Requesting ‘The Honour of Your Presence’ or ‘The Pleasure of Your Company’ are common choices. These two options have distinct meanings. The first is typically used for weddings held at a place of worship, while the second is used for secular wedding venues. Choosing the right option will help your guests know what to expect.
Consider a custom wedding invitation service
Custom wedding invitation services provide an excellent starting point for creating invitations to suit your style. If you’re not sure what words to use, and how to set out your invitation, personalised invitation services typically offer a variety of templates available to build upon.
