Wedding Invitation Wording For Your Invites

Selecting the proper wedding invitation wording is a difficult task for some us. Your invites play a major role in announcing the formality and mood of your wedding way before the guests arrive, so you'll need to get the wording just right, but to be able to do that, you first have to consider the technicality of whose paying the bill? Whether your parents are going to foot the bill, are divorced, deceased or perhaps you and your fiance are paying for the entire event. There are specific ways of wording every situation I've mentioned gracefully and with class.

I'm going to share with you several wedding invitation wording examples that you can use when you order your invitations or when you print them up at home. These examples conform to proper etiquette guidelines, from the most traditional to less formal, there is something here for everyone.



The Most Traditional Wording Lists The Bride's Parents As Hosts:

Mr. and Mrs. Michael Knight
request the honour of your
presence at the marriage of their daughter Cindy Jane
to
Kevin Anthony Johnson
Saturday, the tenth of May
Two thousand and eleven
At six o'clock in the evening
St. Patrick's Cathedral
460 Madison Avenue
New York City

When Both Sets Of Parents Are Footing The Bill (And Want Billing On The Invites), Try This Wording:

Mr. and Mrs Michael Knight
and
Mr. and Mrs. Eric Johnson
request the honour of your
presence at the marriage of
their children
Cindy Jane Knight
and
Kevin John Johnson

If You And Your Fiance Are The Hosts, The Wedding Invitation Wording Can Be Simple:

Cindy Jane Knight
and
Kevin Anthony Johnson
invite you to celebrate their marriage...

Dealing With Divorced Parents Is Often Difficult, Especially If Both Parents Want To Be Listed. Here's An Option That Will Accommodate Them Nicely:

Mr. and Mrs. William Davis
(your mother and stepfather)
and
Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Smith
(your father and stepmother)
request the honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
Cindy Jane Smith...

If One Parent Is Deceased And The Remaining Parent Is Hosting, This Wedding Invitation Wording Is Appropriate And Respectful Towards Your Departed Loved One:

Cindy Jane
daughter of
Michael Knight and Linda Knight, in blessed memory
and
Kevin Anthony Johnson
son of Christopher and Michelle Johnson
request the honor of your presence
at their marriage
Saturday, the twenty-first of June
Two thousand and eleven
at six o’clock
St. Patrick's Cathedral
460 Madison Avenue
New York City

If You're Looking For Something Less Traditional, You Could Try This Wedding Invitation Wording:

If The Parents Do Not Need To Be Listed On The Invitation, You Can Try One Of These:

their marriage...

If you're having trouble selecting an appropriate wording for your invites, I'd like you to know that generally speaking, when the wedding invitation wording reads as "the honour of your presence" this is normally used when a wedding is expected to take place in a house of worship, thus your guests will be expecting the ceremony to be held in a church, temple or synagogue. When the invite reads as "the pleasure of your company", this is often used for a ceremony that will take place in a secular spot, such as the beach, a park, ballroom etc.

Feel fee to use these suggested wedding invitation wordings and be sure to match them with the overall feel of your ceremony, personalities, and situations for the best customized fit!
