Wedding tips and Wording ideas

How do I word my invite? Invitation wording help from Rodo Creative

One of our most frequently asked questions for wedding tips is about how to structure invitations, what to include and what sort of wording to use. People always worry about how they will invite their guests without offending anyone.

We believe that wording should be personal to you. If you’d like to add humour or
keep things traditional, make sure your guests know it’s coming from you. As long as you include all of the essential details i.e. date, location, time, then there will be nothing to worry about.

Many people do choose to go down the traditional route of having their parents inviting the guests – this used to be the case as the brides parents often contributed significantly to the cost of the big day. However, nowadays, many costs are covered by the bride and groom themselves.

To keep things simple, here are a few starting lines which will help keep the family peace!

If you are looking to include families in the invitation, but wanting to avoid the traditional way…

Together with their families [bride/groom names] would love you to join them in celebration

Together with their parents [bride/groom names] invite you to celebrate their special day


If the invite is just from the bride & groom…

[bride/groom names] would like to invite you to join them for their wedding day[bride/groom names] would love you to join them at their wedding[bride/groom names] are getting married!

The traditional way…

Mr and Mrs [brides parents name] request the pleasure of the company of [guest name] at the
marriage of their daughter [bride/groom]


Above all, it’s your wedding, it’s okay to be playful with wording, don’t be afraid of creating
something unique! We are sure that your guests will love to see something different and shows off your personality.
