Outstanding Wording Samples for Wedding Reception Invitations

Wording for Wedding Reception Invitations
Wedding reception invitations are made specially to inform your guests about the important details of the reception; venue and time, among other things. The wording for the invitations can be formal or informal, sometimes even humorous or out-of-the-box.

If you are hosting both the wedding and the reception at the same venue, then the wording may consist of a line added to the wedding invitation, stating that it will immediately follow the wedding. If however, the venue of the wedding and that of the reception are different, then a separate reception invitation card would need to be made accordingly. The wording should ideally be crisp, clear, and to-the-point, leaving no room open for doubt or befuddlement.
Some guests may have trouble finding the venue - if the place is hard to locate, providing a road map would be quite helpful, not to mention, thoughtful. Instead of getting lost on the way to the reception, guests will be able to easily make it on time, and not reach red-faced and frustrated. The little details count, so work it out accordingly. Also, be sure to get the timings right; you don't want guests walking in too early, or too late.

It is wise to mention a landmark in the address of the venue. This is helpful for those who may be unfamiliar to the place. Above all, if you have the slightest of doubt about the wording, then do not mind rewriting it all over again.
