We are often asked about Invitation Wedding Wording, so Compass Rose Studio compiled this guide to help couples. This is meant to provide examples for you and maybe even inspire some ideas. In the end, it's your wedding, and the wording you choose is entirely up to you!

➵ The Anatomy of the Invite, Who What When and Where
Your wedding invitation is more than just an invite, it's an informative itinerary for your guests. And again, it's ultimately up to you what you want to include.

Line 1: Identify who is hosting
Line 2: Requesting and inviting the invitees presence
Line 3: The couples name
Line 4: Date and Time of Ceremony
Line 5: Location of Ceremony
Line 6: Reception Location
Line 7: Anything else you want

➵ Optional Details
Attire: It's not always obvious to guests what is appropriate. The times have changed and sometimes a little guidance for your guests can really help them better understand how to dress. You can list black tie, white tie, semi-formal, festive, or whatever best describes what you expect guests to wear.

Website: A website is an excellent way to further communicate other wedding related details to your guests. Website links most often go near the bottom of the invitation wording.

Adults Only: Kids are great, but some occasions, venues, or circumstances are best for adults only. Simply mentioning "Adult Reception" on your invitation should be appropriate.
