PARA VUESTRAS INVITACIONES
PASO 1: ¿QUÉ INFORMACIÓN DEBE CONTENER NUESTRAS INVITACIONES?
When it comes to wedding invitations and their accompaniments, what to say and how to say it has left many couples wringing their hands in bewilderment. But the process doesn’t need to be stressful or complicated. Remember, each piece in your wedding invitation suite is designed to communicate a specific set of information to your guests. Below are a few simple rules of thumb that will get you headed in the right direction:
The Wedding Invitation
The names of the hosts should be listed at the top of the invitation.
The invitation should include:
- Names of the bride and groom
- Names of the hosts (traditionally, the parents of the bride)
- Ceremony date, day of week, time and location
The word “and” in between two names traditionally implies that those people are married. Names of unmarried hosts or guests should be stacked.
The phrase “request the honour of your presence” is typically reserved for a church or place of worship.
If the wedding ceremony and reception are being hosted in the same location, there is no need for a reception card. At the bottom of the invitation, you can simply state “Reception to follow” or “Dinner and dancing to follow”.
For the wedding collection, try not to use abbreviations. Traditionally, middle names, street information and state names are spelled out. If you do choose to list the date or any other information in a more casual manner, be consistent across all pieces of the invitation suite.
