What to Write On Your Wedding Invitation

(With Plenty of Examples!)


Finding the right wording to write and print on your wedding invitations can be a stressful task for all brides to be. But choosing the right wording doesn’t have to be a problematic process.


It's best to remember that every detail of your wedding invitation should be selected to communicate something effective to your beloved family and friends.


With our handcrafted material and designs providing you the perfect canvas, here are a few simple guidelines you could follow when deciding what to write on your wedding invitation.


Your wedding invitation should contain:


X) Full names of the bride and groom.


X) Names of the hosts of the wedding and reception (if not the bride and groom).

X) Date of the Ceremony date, along with day of the week, time of the reception, followed by location and location address.

X) The names of your guests.


Always use the accurate names of the guests on the invitation and accompaniments. If you are unsure of the names, always double check with your partner, family and triple check if you are working with a wedding planner. Using the right name will make your guests feel honored and more welcome at your wedding.


It is recommended not to include wedding gift registry information on the invitation. It is best to communicate the gift registry details on a wishing well card or gift registry card, which is designed as an accompaniment to suit the wedding invitation design.


Keep the invitation wording simple, with a beautiful quote that binds the bride and groom’s tale of love. Long wedding quotes can take up space and leave the invitation looking small and compressed.


Here's an example.


"From this day forward

Love fills a lifetime

And this our life, our beginning

One Love that is shared by two"


<Name of Guest>


We cherish the roles you play in our lives and would be honored if you would join us, as we enter into the journey of marriage


<Bride’s Name>


<Groom’s Name>
