One of the most popular questions we are often asked is ‘how should I word the wedding invites?’, so consequently here is an article that reveals all!


First things first, a wedding invitation should always be sent from whoever is actually hosting the wedding. This is not to say that (if it is the Bride’s parents for example) they need to buy, address, attach stamps and post each wedding invite (although if you could swing that, you’re on to a winner!), but simply to say that it will effect how the wedding invitation is worded.


The second thing to know is what details need to be included in a wedding invitation. Essentially, there are seven key things to include on any invite, and these are:

  • The names of those being invited (include children if you want them there – parents ‘should’ assume that they alone are invited if their children’s names are omitted. If the children are not to be invited, a short polite note or telephone call explaining your reasoning is courteous).
  • The name of the host(s).
  • The names of the Bride and Groom.
  • The name of the wedding ceremony venue.
  • The day, month, year and time that the proceedings will commence.
  • The name of the wedding reception venue.
  • RSVP details.

Other details such as directions, menu options, dress code, parking and gift details are not essentials for the invite but will need to be communicated to the guests somehow. Suggestions for doing so are covered in the article entitled Issuing Additional Info.
