Invitation Wording

 

Use these samples as a starting place for your invitation wording. Remember to include all of the important details. The address line is only necessary if you are not including a direction card. In some situations you can include reception information at the bottom of your invitation if space allows and you want to avoid a separate reception card.

There are many pitfalls to avoid in wording your invitation. You may want to consult an etiquette book or offer a first draft to all parties involved before printing your invitation order. We are happy to offer advice but our opinions are only guidelines. Avoid including quotes or passages on the invitation as a more appropriate place would be your wedding program. Keep it simple and elegant. Your choice of language on your invitation sets the tone for your event. If you are very formal in your wording choices your guests will know to expect a white gown for the bride and tuxedos on the groomsmen.

Most of the invitations shown on this site are the final version of past invitation orders from real brides and grooms. Many of them are unconventional but were printed the way our customers preferred. You are the boss when it comes to what your invitation says and when your sense of style or taste does not need to fit with modern convention.

Below the invitation text you will see a few response card wording examples. To save paper you can consider using a wedding web site to collect this information.

Our handmade papers are formed one at a time with a mould and deckle. They are made with 100% post industrial waste and are 100% tree free, acid free paper. Embedded in this stock is our unique North American Wildflower seed blend. The seeds will need four hours a day of direct sunlight with constant watering until established. The plants can grow to as tall as three feet. The seeds include Spurred Snapdragon,Tussock Bellflower, Creeping Thyme, Lilac Godetia, Foxglove, Catchfly, Monkeyflower, English Daisy, Red Corn Poppy and Showy Evening Primrose. This blend is specifically designed to allow us to print directly onto the handmade seed paper and for safe propagation across North America.

This card has the text printed on the textured side of our stock, on the reverse is a smooth surface that feels luxurious under your fingertips.
