Hey, you’re invited! Wait… that didn’t really sound right did it? Oh, sorry let’s backtrack! It’s time for wedding invitations! 

You picked the place, and you set a date. Time to make the invites! Wording is always a little tricky for some people. You have a battle between sounding elegant and classy, but modern and different as well. Here are some cute and classy wordings that will fit any couple:

You are cordially invited to [inset name’s] wedding

_____Request your presence on [insert date, place, and time]

[insert name’s] Kindly request your presence for our wedding day

If your parent’s are hosting the wedding:

[Insert name’s here] respectfully request your presence at the wedding of our daughter, and soon to be son-in-law [insert name’s here]

Once you’ve figured out your wording for the invitation decide on how you want to write and attach the RSVP slips, and also how you want your guests to RSVP. Here are some clever ways you can write out your RSVP slips:

Count us in! Sitting this one out

Gladly attend! Regretfully decline

Can’t wait to party! Sorry, we can’t make it

Yes, we will attend! We’ll be there in spirit 

The bags are packed! Sorry, we can’t find our passports

Ready to celebrate! We’ll be missing the fun

If you don’t want to add RSVP slips you can always provide a website that entails the details of your wedding, and also where they can kindly accept or decline. Modern technology has made it so fun easy to create your own little wedding website!

Remember to send out all invite about six to eight weeks in advance, and even sooner if you have guests coming from out of town. This gives you plenty of time to work out the kinks, and to figure out your amount of guests.

Thanks for reading, see you next time!
