Looking for some lovely examples of informal and unique wording for your wedding stationery? You’ve come to the right place.
Traditionally you wedding invitation would be a formal announcement from your parents requesting the pleasure of your friends’ company to your special day (yadda yadda yadda). This wording format still works well for a certain type of fancy country house wedding, but if you’re planning a laid-back get-together at the local village hall it can look, frankly, a little bit ridiculous.
So before you start putting your name on something that sounds like it was written in the 18th century STOP, there are plenty of other alternatives…
Keep it simple
First things first, there are really only a few things your invitation needs actually NEEDS to have: your names, the date, location and time – and if that’s all you want to include that’s fine.
However, it’s also a good idea to include a call to action and ask you guests to RSVP and give them a cut off date so you can get your numbers sorted.
Add some personality
Now you’ve got the bare bones in there it’s time to start adding in some fun phrases and wording to give your guests an idea of what to expect on the day. A few cute touches promising food and fun can do the trick.
Take this wording even further by taking away all the formal elements of an invitation and make it much more conversational. We love this cheeky typographic wording example.
If you’re both romantics at heart how about writing out your fairy tale? This literary love letter cleverly includes all the details your guests need and stands out from the crowd.
