Creative Wording for Wedding Invitations PDF Print
One of the major decisions that should be made when deciding to do an event, particularly a wedding, is deciding how the wedding invitations should look and how your message should be relayed. In addition, creative wording for wedding invitations should be utilized. This is very important since all brides want to set a romantic tone in wedding invitations instead of stilted, cryptic language or slang words.
It is not easy to find the right creative wording for wedding invitations. It is therefore appropriate that a soon-to-be-wed couple should become resourceful in finding and formulating creative words for wedding invitations. There are many ways to obtain invitation wording examples where one can get inspiration from. A person can explore his creativity in wording the invitations by developing unique wedding invitation ideas online.
The words that are used in wedding invitations should reflect the personality of the couple who are to be wed. Also, it should express the sentiments of the persons from whom the invitations are from. Most often, the creative wording for wedding invitations reference life and love. Romantic words such as ‘dream come true’, ‘our ceremony of love and life’ and similar others are incorporated in these invitations.
Furthermore, a wedding invitation gives guests an idea about how formal a wedding is, what theme or setting could be expected from the occasion and the hosts for the wedding and the reception. For formal wedding, certain rules are observed when making, addressing wedding invitations. First, there should be no periods at the end of the line. Second, only proper given names of guests and members of the bridal party should be used. Their full names should be spelled out. Third, there should be no abbreviations in the names aside from Mr., Mrs., Dr., and Jr., and other salutations. Fourth, all the first letters of each line in the invitation should not be capitalized except if the first word is a proper noun. Fifth, the time and date when the wedding will be held should be spelled out in full.
While many people try to come up with innovative wording on their own, others utilize resources already available to them via books and the internet. Below are several examples of creative wording for those who have made this their stop for creative inspiration.
  • Who’s Hosting?
Typical wedding invitations state the hosts of the wedding, whether it be the bride and groom or a set of parents. While the wording is usually very formal and concise, this portion of the wedding invitation is a perfect place to infuse some joy and creativity. Some examples:
       The parents of (bride’s name) and (groom’s name) are elated to announce the upcoming union of their children.
       With joyful anticipation, Mr. and Mrs. (insert name) request the blessing of your presence at the wedding of (names).
       Our family is growing! With happy hearts, we invite you to the wedding ceremony of (names).
  • Fun Location?
If your wedding is at an exceptional locale or someplace meaningful to you as a couple, consider including that in your wedding invitation as well. Getting married at the same church your parents did? Is your ceremony at the site of your proposal or where you started dating? Use the symbolism your wedding day holds to bring some excitement to your wedding invitation:
       Going back to our roots, we invite you to attend a ceremony to witness our family’s next generation of “I do’s.”
       Going back to the beginning, join us at a celebration where we began our life together.
       Come experience the magic! (Bride name) and (Groom name) are getting married at Disneyland!
  • Adding Some Art with Words
If you would prefer to keep your wedding invitation traditional but are a fan of poetry or a famous quote or Bible verse, you can add a small blurb onto your wedding invitation before or after the pertinent information is given. Again, consult with a writer or special friend/family member if you are interested in putting a personal touch into your wedding invitation.
