SAMPLE WEDDING INVITATION WORDING

With all of the different styles and themes of wedding invitations that exist, there can be a lot of confusion over how to properly word your wedding invitation. While each case is different and each wedding situation is unique, there are at least a few standard guidelines that exist to point you in the right direction. The wedding invitation wording is typically based off of who is hosting (read: paying) for the wedding, and from there you can determine the level of formality used.
