Wedding Invitation Wording

By Ashlea

Wedding Invitation wording can be so daunting. What do you include? How do you say it? We have all the answers right here!

Wedding Invitations Wording


The invitation traditionally begins with an introduction indicating who is hosting the wedding. Which may be the brides parents, grooms parents, a combination of the bride and groom and their families or the couple themselves.


Request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter


Request the pleasure of your company

One set of parents:

Mr. and Mrs. James Ford
Request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter


Both sets of parents:

Mr. and Mrs. James Ford
along with Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Bradbury
Cordially invite you to attend the marriage of their children

Divorced Parents:

Ms. Taylor Ford Guessler
Mr. James Ford
Request the presence at the marriage of their daughter


Couple + Family/ Bride + Groom:

Together With Their Families

Anna and Alexander
invite you to share with them
in the joy of their wedding

Anna and Alexander
Request the pleasure of your company


The Bride and Grooms name will appear after the introduction and is usually larger in type. There are several ways to write out your names. If it’s a formal invitation and/or both set of parents are hosting, then the Bride and Groom with have their first and middle names with no last name. If the couple is hosting, then both first and last names are used – middle name is totally optional.


The month, day, year and time are all included in the details as well as the location. Traditionally, everything from the month to the time is spelled out.

Saturday, August Eighth, Two Thousand Fifteen
Six O’Clock in the Evening

Belhurst Castle
4069 W Lake Rd – Geneva, New York


The last line of the wedding invitations indicates what is to follow the ceremony. To keep things short and sweet, couples tend to add “Dinner and Dancing to follow”. If the reception is at a different place, a small or large enclosure is used for all of the additional information.
