INVITATION WORDING

Your wedding invitation is the formal announcement your guests have been waiting for, it sets the tone and should spell out all the essential wedding info they need to know. You can send out the most beautiful invitations but the truth is, they need to be informative.

In general, a wedding invitation will include a host line, name of the bride and groom, an invitation line and information regarding your ceremony and reception. Whether you want to stick to a traditional format or break the rules, the best way to decide on a wording style is that it should sound like you.

Wishing Well Wording
Example One

So what do you get
For the Bride and Groom
Whose house needs things
In every room?
When shopping for a present
Please, don’t be rash
As the option is there
To just give cash!
We hope that you don’t find
Our request to be funny
But the decision is yours
To buy a present, or give money
Now you have the choice
Please do not fuss
The most important thing of all
Is that you come celebrate with us!


Example Two

Example #2

To save you looking,
shopping and buying,
Here is an idea
we hope you’ll like trying!
Come to our wedding
to wish us both well,
And make some use
of our little wishing well.
Just put some money into a card,
Now make a wish….
See, that wasn’t hard!
Now that we have saved you all of the fuss,
We hope that you will come
And celebrate with us!


Example Three

Now we are to be Mr & Mrs
We don’t need a wedding list of dishes.
A holiday is what we need,
so your help with this would be a great gift indeed.
So should you wish to honour us with a gift,
we have registered a honeymoon registry
at Flight Centre where you can make a contribution
to help us make a honeymoon
a memory that will last a lifetime.


Example Four

More than just kisses so far we’ve shared
Our home has been made with love and care,

Most things we need we’ve already got
Like a toaster and kettle, pans and pots

A wishing well we thought would be great
(but only if you wish to participate)

A gift of money is placed in the well
Then make a wish … but do not tell

Once we’ve replaced the old with the new
We can look back and say it was thanks to you!

And in return for your kindness we’re sure
that one day soon you’ll get what you wished for!
