Weddings are a crazed time of rushed to-do lists and moments that can make you go berserk for mishaps big and small. It’s a time where patience is tested and when fuses grow shorter. The easiest part though is choosing a design and the appropriate wording that will go into a wedding invitation.
It isn’t such a stressful situation to sit down and select a beautiful or even fun wedding invitation card.
How to Select and Word Out a Wedding Invitation
There are two ways to go about selecting a wedding invitation, one is to have someone specially design a card for you, and second is to of course sit down and choose from a folder of sample wedding cards. You could also ask the designer if he / she could use different elements from more than one card to infuse into one, making it stand out and come off as more unique. After you’ve chosen your design, the next part is the wording.
The wording in the invitation card has to mention all the important details that are obvious to include. Be sure to start off with the names of you and your partner in a font that stands out when the reader lets his / her eyes fall on the invitation. You can choose something classy, with an embossed finished. Fun fonts are also available but only if you’re card design is versatile with such a font.
Include the name of your parents, and if they are deceased you can mention this next to their name/s, in enclosed brackets. If you wish to leave out the names of your parents as many people do, you can always start off the main wording immediately after your names.
You can include in the body of the card a prayer, poem, quote, or personal message to the recipient. Keep it short, simple, and heartfelt.
The important part of the wedding invitation is to mention where it will be taking place. Is it going to be the traditional church wedding followed by the reception? Or is it an outdoor wedding followed by the reception in the same / different venue? Mention these two separately, so that people do not confuse the dates / venues of each event. Highlight the important parts like the venue name or event so that it stands out in the invitation, and is hard to miss.
The last part includes the RSVP section, where you need to include details like a home / an email address or phone number/s, that the invitee can get back to for confirmation of whether he /she is attending the wedding. Mention a date to confirm their attendance at least two months before the wedding.
