Invitations: What will you say? PDF Print

_MG_8271.jpgThe wording of your invitation sets the tone for the entire affair. So, what will your invitations say?

Your wedding invitations will be the first inkling your guests have as to what sort of wedding they will be attending.  Of course, the main purpose of your invitations is to ask your friends, family, co-workers or other individuals to help you celebrate one of the biggest days of your life.  However, there is a slew of different ways to say the same thing – so, with your invitations, what will you say?

If your wedding will be very traditional, you probably want to go with the traditional wedding invitation.  The variation in wording depends on who is paying for the wedding.  The accepted rule is that the person paying for the wedding is mentioned first on the invitations. If the bride and groom are paying, their names come first: “You are cordially invited to celebrate the wedding of John Groom and Jane Bride.” If the bride or groom’s parents are paying, their names come first: “Mr. and Mrs. Bride request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter, Ms. Jane Bride…” Of course, this information is followed by the date, time, location and reception details.  While it’s perfectly fine to use the accepted and traditional wedding invitation wording, more adventurous couples may prefer wording with a twist.

If your wedding will be very relaxed and casual, you will probably want to soften the wording on the wedding invitations.  By following the traditional outline, but your own casual message – you can provide the necessary details and still put some of yourself and your future spouse into the invitation wording.  For instance, for a very casual, laid-back wedding, it may go something like this: “John Groom and Jane Bride ask that you share the celebration of love and happiness at their wedding…” Of course, for a casual wedding invitation, the wording is entirely up to you. Keep it fun and light, humorous but most of all – allow it to reflect a bit of you and your sweetheart!

The simple word “invitation” is somewhat misleading for a wedding invitation is often more than just a single card or piece of paper.  An invitation set or ensemble, as they are called, might include the main invitation, a separate card with reception or ceremony specifics, some form of reply card for guests to post back, and an envelope or two, not to mention assorted enclosures bearing various bits of information regarding anything from special seating to travel arrangements.  For presentation’s sake, all of these elements are generally printed in a coordinating style using the same method, paper, type, and ink color.  Each item is not always essential for every wedding, and your individual needs will be the driving force behind determining exactly which of these pieces are required.  To help you decide, keep in mind whether you plan on inviting your entire guest list to both the ceremony and the reception, and whether you will need to provide anything beyond the invitation basics such as maps or accommodation cards. At Precious Invitation, we hope to provide for all of your wedding stationery needs.

 

 
Wedding Invitations Etiquette PDF Print
Saturday, 12 September 2009 13:22

These days, most of us no longer have the time - nor the inclination-to seriously memorize etiquette manuals to learn rules on how to live our lives. Edicts such as whether a man should guide a woman by the elbow when they are walking down the street seem almost quaintly out of date and have little to do with most people's everyday lives. That being said, there is an established etiquette for wedding invitations and it is worth following. Designed to communicate various bits of information (both directly and subtly) surrounding the wedding, this specific etiquette extends to the wording on the invitation as well as the wording on the envelopes and response cards. Etiquette also offers guidance with regards to the timing for the sending of invitations, and, thankfully, etiquette can also help you address any sticky situations that may arise with your guests. Visit our wedding invitation etiquette for a complete guide.

 

 
The Importance of Wedding Invitations PDF Print

_MG_8743.jpgTucked among the usual contents of the mail-bills, catalogs, flyers, magazines, perhaps the old postcard or letter-is something special. Judging by the pretty envelope, the shape, or maybe even the handwriting or return address, it is unmistakably an invitation. And though birthdays and dinner parties are fun, it's even more wonderful if the invitation occasion is something as joyous as a wedding. Now when you are the one getting married, chances are your close friends and family know all about it long before you post the invitations. Good news travels fast! So why is it necessary to carry on the tradition of sending them?

At its most utilitarian, this document presents the facts of time and place so your guests know when and where you want them to go. On another level, it sends the message to your family and friends that they are so dear you wish them to be present at one of the most meaningful events of your life. Besides, who could deny guests the pleasure of receiving a beautiful invitation in the mail? A wedding is a celebration like no other, and the invitation heralds the event and helps build the excitement leading up to it.

By sending invitations you are joining other brides and grooms in tradition throughout the ages. Wedding selection of your invitation is an important step as the invitation sets the stage for the event for your guests and directs the look and feel on many other elements of the day. Know to that not only are you providing guests with the details and giving them a hint of what to expect, you are making a bold and very public first statement about who you are as a couple. What will your wedding invitation say about the two of you?
