Information for Wedding Invitations

Who's Hosting the Wedding?

Traditionally, the bride’s parents host the wedding.  That being said, you can name whoever who wish – both families, you and your other half, step parents, or even your children.

The request to come to the wedding

Traditional and religious ceremonies call for formal wording e.g. ‘request the pleasure of your company…’. Modern and civil services lend themselves to more casual language like ‘Join us to celebrate….’

The names of the couple

Usually, the bride’s name comes before the groom’s. Names on same-sex invitations can be arranged alphabetically or in which ever order has the best ring to it!

The location of the wedding

Formal invitations tend to list the entire address, including postcode. But with Google at our fingertips, it’s becoming a trend to simply put the venue and city – your guests will figure out the rest.
