Posted on 18 January 2012
Wedding can be fantastic moments for all the girls,it will never be forgotten in the whole life. Therefore ,every vital part of the wedding means a lot to him or her, including the wedding invitations.
Writing a wedding invitation may seem to be easy. But when you have to use the formal style and rules of etiquette to ensure you give the right tone to the right person, it turns out to be a massive task. Here are some tips that can help you with your wedding invitation.
Traditionally,the content of a wedding invitation may consist of Hosting,Request,The Couple,Date &Time,The Location and Reception.
Firstly for the Hosting part, you need to write who is hosting for the wedding, either the bride’s parents or the couple themselves.
Secondly, request your guests’ attendance in the Request part.
Thirdly, write the couple’s name in The Couple part,traditionally the bride is listed first.
Fourthly, the date and time of the wedding for the Date & Time part.
Fifthly, give the address of the location.
The last but not the least, give the address and time of your reception for the Reception part.
Besides, at the top of the wedding invitation,you can write some wordings. It is true that marriage is a ceremony where all your family and friends get together to witness the bonding of two people in love.The wordings are generally preferred to be conventional.
It is allowed if you want to add some information to make your guest more clearly.For instance,when you want to notice your guest what to wear in the wedding ,you can use wording like black tie,semi-formal,cocktail attire, festive attire,white tie, dressy casual, informal,etc. You can also add the wording ’adult reception’ if you don’t want to have children at the reception.
Note that it is not polite to mention gifts in the wedding invitation.
