Wedding ETIQUETTE

Deciding how to word your wedding invitation can be a little overwhelming. So to make things that little bit easier, we have compiled a selection of wording ideas to help along the way.

These days you can word your order completely as you wish. Please just be sure that you have included and double checked all the important information;

venue, date, time, etc. You would be surprised how often the big details can be forgotten!

The most important thing to remember when writing your wording is that you get the main information across, four key points to remember and we will do the rest!...

who - Are you inviting, parents, as a whole family or Mr & Mrs?

when - Day, month and year

where - Location of wedding, church and reception if different

what - This can include personal details like accommodation, directions, dietry requirements, song requests the list is endless!

Below are some examples of wording for both day and evening invitations.

When to send out your invitations;

Save the dates

Traditionally, save the date cards are sent out between 4 – 6 months before the wedding, 6-8 for overseas weddings, giving your guests plenty of time to request time off work, book accommodation, arrange child care and save money.

Invitations

Traditionally, invitations go out six to eight weeks before the wedding -- that gives guests plenty of time to clear their schedules and make travel arrangements if they don't live in town. If it's a destination wedding, give guests more time and send them out three months ahead of time.
