Wedding invitations are one of the most important aspects in arranging a wedding. Not only in a design sense, but also from a content perspective. You and your soon to be husband or wife need to decide what wording will go in your wedding invites. Many newlyweds often decide to use poetry or meaningful excerpts in their invitations. Some take another route and decide to write their own thoughts. Finally, we have those hosting a more informal event, who use quirky and creative wording to give a more fun feel to their invite.
So where can you start drawing inspiration for your wedding invite? How about from you or your partners past experiences? If that idea doesn’t appeal to you, you can also draw from where your wedding will be located or how it will be styled. There are literally hundreds of different things you can draw your inspiration from. The few we’ve mentioned above are just some ideas.
To give you a bit of a head start, we’d like to remind you that most invitations begin by directly addressing a particular guest and asking him or her to be present the wedding. Various wordings can be utilized for such a request. When addressing the person, you need to avoid using slang terms and try your best to use high diction. You really don’t want to sound like an illiterate.
One thing you need to take into consideration when wording your invite is the caliber of your wedding. By caliber, I’m referring to whether your wedding is a formal or more casual wedding. In the case of the latter, you have more flexibility and can get away with a lot more things – such as using a more lax diction.
Once you’ve completed your invite, don’t forget to mail it with the proper additions. Typical invites are mailed out with some sort of RSVP card. You can add some additional items, such as directions.
