Your invitations are really important for your wedding – and that’s only natural, really. After all, these cards are the “preview” to your wedding and you want everything about them to be perfect: from the design to what’s written inside.
What are you going to say in your wedding invitations, though? What are the words you should use? We have gathered some suggestions, so read on if you want to find out more.
· Traditionally, the names of the parents of the bride come first, followed by the name of the bride, the request line, the names of the parents of the groom and the name of the groom. In very formal situations, Mr. and Mrs. are used before the names of the parents. However, these days it seems very old-school to do this and most brides and grooms choose to use their parents’ names as such (e.g. “John and Marry Jackson”).
· In some cases, couples choose to have their names written first on the invitations and add a “together with their parents” (e.g.: “Sally Johnson and Ben Smithson, together with their parents…”). This is usually done when the couple pays for the wedding on their own with little or no financial help from their parents.
· Your request line can be as formal or as informal as you want it to be. However, keep in mind that it should match the level of formality of the wedding itself. For example, a semi-informal way of inviting guests would be “request the pleasure of your company” and an even more informal way of doing it would be “invite you to share and celebrate”.
