You're Invited!



Sending out wedding invitations can be a tedious process, especially if you are a DIY bride who is considering printing at home. Your invitations should be a preview of the style and tone of your wedding. Guests can learn if they should expect a casual or formal setting and catch a glimpse into the unique motifs you are designing for the big day. If you’re feeling hung up on some of the formalities of traditional wedding invitations, here are a couple of formal invitation wording templates to help ease the pain.

When the parents of the bride are issuing the invitations:
Mr. and Mrs. John Jones
request the honor of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
Mary Ann
and
Mr. Christopher Blake Daniels
on Saturday, the eighth of September
two thousand and ten
at three o’clock
Southeast Christian Church
543 West Broadway Road
New York, New York

When the couple is issuing the invitations:
Mary Ann Jones
and
Christopher Blake Daniels
request the honor of your presence
at their marriage
on Saturday, the eighth of September
two thousand and ten
at three o'clock
Southeast Christian Church
543 West Broadway Road
New York, New York

When the parents of both bride and groom are issuing the invitations:
Mr. and Mrs. Randolph Daniels
and
Mr. and Mrs. John Jones
request the honor of your presence
at the marriage of their children
Mary Ann
and
Christopher Blake
on Saturday, the eighth of September
two thousand and ten
at three o'clock
Southeast Christian Church
543 West Broadway Road
New York, New York

There are several ways for DIY brides to attain a professionally-printed look on invitations done at the home office. Sticking to more traditional elements, like black ink or a script or contemporary font helps create a classic look which is clean, refined and always in style. For a sophisticated finishing touch, many coupled seal their envelope with ornate, monogrammed or single-initial seals. A good tip is to order extra of these to use as wedding favor labels at your reception! For an even more personalized addition to your wedding invitations, try pressing your stationary or envelope with a custom-made embosser. A return address richly embossed on your invitations well evoke a professional and distinguished aesthetic.
