How to Word Your Wedding Invitations With Just the Couple’s Names

How to Word Your Wedding Invitations With Just the Couple’s Names

Featured wedding invitation: Vintage Garden

When you’re customizing your wedding invitations, you may find yourself asking questions about how to craft your wording. We get lots of questions about who to list on wedding invitations, as it can sometimes be tricky.

Wording your wedding invitations always begins with one key question: who is hosting your wedding?

The host of your wedding is typically the person(s) paying for the majority of the celebration. It’s traditionally the parents of the bride, or both sets of parents. But, more and more commonly, couples themselves are shouldering the majority of wedding expenses.

If you’re paying for your own wedding, wording your wedding invitation is simple.

Below, we’ve listed a variety of invitation wording ideas written for couples hosting their own wedding. But hold up – if you’re sharing financial responsibility with your parents (or anyone else), be sure to include them on your invitations. Not only is it proper etiquette, but it’s so important to recognize their support.
