There are numerous ways to word your wedding invitations. While some couples choose to go the traditional route, others want to inject their personality into the cards. Consider creative wording that will give your guests a hint of all the fun to come. Here are some tips on how to do it:

Creative invitation wording ideas

Love story
If you and your loved one are sentimental, you could start the invitation with a bit of background on how you met or got together. For example, you could write "John and Ashley met in a quiet library in college... For the rest of the story, join us on ... " then write the date, time and address of the nuptials.

Some couples opt for a comical wedding invite. You could include a joke to lighten the mood or add a pop culture reference in the wording. For example, the invite could read "He asked, and she said yes. Or was it the other way around? However it happened, Jason and Beth are getting married!"

If you are hosting a themed or destination wedding, make sure your invitations are tied into the locale. For example, if the nuptials will take place on beach, you could write "Before Peter and Jessica set sail on their new life together, they would like you to join them for an evening of food, drinks and friends."

Expressing friendship
A relationship is between two people, but the friends of the couple take part in the experience by attending parties together and providing an open ear. Some brides and grooms like to take a moment to thank their buddies directly on the invitation. For instance, you could write,"Your love and unwavering friendship has helped up become who we are. Come join us as we exchange vows and continue on our journey."

Other tips
If you're taking a casual approach to your invitations, there are no set rules on wording. Just think about the message you are trying to convey and the mood you want to set for the upcoming ceremony and reception. Apply these tips to your save the date cards, which you send out in advance of the actual wedding invitations. These small wedding date reminders can be lighthearted - just stay true to the overall theme of your upcoming nuptials.
