Wedding Etiquette Tips 14

 
 

Writing format for wedding invitation wording
There are myriad of designs of wedding invitations in stores nowadays, so many that you are spoilt for choice. But many wedding couples would prefer to hire a designer to design their very own wedding invitation cards, their services range from $200 to $400, depends on the intricateness.

A simple wedding invitation card will have spaces leaving the bride and groom to fill in, there may be a tear off slip for reply.

The RSVP reply is important to the one paying for the wedding, as knowing the number of wedding guests attending will allow him or her to budget properly. Normally, invited guests are able to reply a few days after they receive their wedding invitation, but there will still be a few of them that are not able to reply so soon because of busy schedule or simply because they have forgotten about it; this can spell disaster to the one hosting the wedding as he or she may not have enough time to fill in the empty seats. To counter this problem, it is a good practice to print a cut off date right after the RSVP, and if some guests still did not reply when the date draws near, you can have someone to give them a courtesy call to confirm if they are coming to grace your wedding or not.

Designs of wedding invitations are not restricted to cards only, some wedding couples will even go out all the way to get wedding favors with their names and date printed to act as an invitation, creativity is the name of the game!

A simple example of a wedding invitation wording from groom’s father will be as follows…

Mr and Mrs XXXXX
Request the pleasure of the company of
______________________________
at the marriage of their son
YYYYY
With
Miss PPPPP
At Church of Our Saviour, Brookesville

And at a banquet at the Regency Hotel.

Your address RSVP (by 20th May)
