Invitation Wording

There are no right or wrong way to word your wedding invitations in our opinion. Your wedding is your own, and we don't really subscribe to the standard wedding etiquette rules around here! Want to put a URL link on the front of your wedding invitations - awesome! Want a QR code on your details card? No trouble at all!

Invitation Wording

Need a few more pointers? Here are just a few ways in which you can personalise your invitations

Who goes first on the Invitation?

It's traditional for the Bride to be first on the Invitation as back in the old days, as her parents would have been hosting (financing) the event. But times have changed, and it's really up to you. Our LGBTQIA+ friends have free range in this department!

I tend to stick with who's name looks best first - shorter names first, followed by the longer name below does tend to look more aesthetically pleasing - but there are no rules!

First Names or Full Names?

Depending on the style of your invitation, you might like to have first names only. But, if you're having a more formal affair, you might choose to go with your full names.

How should we format the date?

It's super important to state the day of the week, especially when the wedding day is not falling on a Saturday (as your guest may assume).

You are welcome to have just the date in numbers, or written out in full text. This might depend on if you're having a casual style invitation or a more formal affair.

How to write the ceremony time

There are a few ways to go about this.
Here are a few popular options;

- 3 o'clock in the afternoon
- Ceremony to begin at 3pm
- Guest arrival at 2:30pm for a 3pm Ceremony
- Three o'clock in the afternoon

What's the go with RSVP Cards?

There a few ways to get RSVPs back from your guests. The most popular style is the RSVP postcards that we offer in our ship. No envelope required, just a stamp!

You could also opt to have your guests email or sms their RSVP and simply list the details at the bottom of the invitation which is a great way to keep printing costs down!

If you do opt for a RSVP card, it will need to have a date advising when your guests should reply by.

Do we need a details card?

If you're not having an out-of-town wedding or offering transportation etc then you might not need one at all. But they can be a great way to inform your guests of all the little details that might not fit onto the invitation - especially during this uncertain COVID era.

You can also opt to print the details on the reverse side of the invitation to keep costs down too.
