Wording: Informal Wedding Invitations

Less traditional wording still conveys the necessary information with wording that is both gracious and grammatically correct.

Unlike traditionally worded invitations, which use only "the honour of your presence" or "the pleasure of your company" to invite guests, less formal contemporary wording often reflects the couple's own personal style. Dates are sometimes more casually worded, titles omitted, and reception invitations may be issued more simply. However, the basic information common to all invitations still applies: who is hosting, the nature of the event, where and when it will take place, and how the guest should respond, if necessary.

 

Here are some samples of informal wedding invitation wording.
