When you think about your wedding invitations, you want them to convey the tone of your upcoming wedding and reflect your personality and style. Choosing the right font and wording makes a big impact on the look and feel of your invitations, and the options are endless!
Pairing two complimentary fonts together is a great way to add interest and style to your stationery.
Traditional wedding invitations use formal, classic wording that follows stricter etiquette guidelines. Full names and titles are used, and dates and times are fully spelled out. For ceremonies in houses of worship, use the formal phrase "Request the honor of your presence," and use "Request the pleasure of your company" for secular ceremonies. Instead A.M. or P.M, say "in the morning" or "in the afternoon."
If the words formal and traditional don't describe you and your partner's personalities or vision for your wedding day, don't feel you have to use formal wording for your invitations. There are many ways to word your wedding invitations that feel more casual and modern, while still reflecting what a momentous occasion it will be! You can play with the phrases and layout to create a more relaxed look and feel to your invites.
