Your wedding is one of the biggest moments in your life, so it’s no surprise that many people dedicate ample amounts of time, money and resources to making sure it’s as perfect as possible. While there are many aspects to a wedding, your wedding invitations are one of the most important because they are likely the first impression people will have of your upcoming marriage. The wording you choose will let guests know whether you are having a traditional wedding, a destination wedding or something more laid-back and relaxed, as well as if you’re hosting the wedding yourself or if your parents are the ones who are hosting. These 18 blog entries will give you some sample wording to help you create the perfect invitation.
In a traditional wedding invitation, the wording will reflect that the parents of the bride are inviting the guests. This typically also signifies that they are the ones who are paying for the wedding. Wording can become tricky if your parents are divorced and are both hosting the wedding, as well as if your parents are divorced and remarried and both couples are helping pay for the wedding. Figuring out how to navigate these complexities is explained on the following six blog posts.
