There are literally thousands of different ways to ‘invite’ your guests to your wedding. Traditionally it was the brides parents who invited guests to their daughters wedding as they were the ones paying the most for the wedding and more often the not the grooms parents were featured as hosts as well. These days it’s a very personal choice and almost anything goes. You may have difficult family situations or don’t feel the need for a specific person or people to be ‘host’ of your celebrations. Below is a small selection of invitation wording examples we commonly use. Feel free to use these, or a simple search for ‘wedding invitation wording’ will yield thousands of results to look through.
