Wedding Invitation Wording

Getting the wording just right on your wedding invitations is critical – not only does the language you use communicate the facts, it also sets the style and tone of the occasion. There is a certain etiquette; however, nowadays there are a variety of formats to follow, ranging from the more formal to the casual. Whearas traditionally the bride’s parents hosted the wedding celebration, wedding invitation etiquette now encompasses the different household arrangements of today’s society. So, if you’re stuck for words, check out the samples we’ve provided here…
