Once you have decided on who is hosting your wedding then you may want to have a think about the wording for the official attendance request. Please see below some examples for you to consider :
1. Kindly request the pleasure of your company ....
2. Kindly request the pleasure of the company of ....
3. Are delighted to invited ....
4. Would be delighted for you to attend ....
5. Invite you ....

7. Request the honour of your presence ....
8. Invite you to share in the love and happiness of the marriage of ....
9. Invite you to join us at the celebration of our marriage .....
10. You are cordially invited to celebrate the marriage of ....
Getting the Wording correct on your invitations is very important. You need to consider your personal circumstances, who may be “hosting” your wedding and the information that your guests need.
The following list is the suggested order in which an Invitation is prepared :
The Hosts of the wedding.
The official attendance request.
The first (and middle) names of the bride and groom. & the groom’s surname
Date and Time.
The Ceremony location.
Time and Location of the Reception afterwards.
Further information (eg dress code / adult reception).
Please have a look through our selection of wording examples and decide which best suits your wedding, circumstances and preference. These are purely samples and can be adjusted to suit you. Some of our invitations are available with extra inserts which means that not all of the above information needs to be on one page (for example : cheque books and pocketfolds).
Traditionally the bride’s parents would issue the invitations as they would be hosting their daughters wedding. However, today costs are split differently and family situations are a lot more diverse. If you need any help with your Wording then please contact us.
All of our wording samples have been prepared using Century Gothic font > please see our Font selections document to choose a Font to suit you. We are happy to send you a copy of your chosen words in a Font style so that you can see what it would look like.
Numbers or Words?
The next part of your invitation includes dates and times. Some people like to use numbers and others prefer to use words. This is a personal choice and can be used to fit in with any wording choices.
