Word For Word
When choosing your invitation take into consideration the formality of your wedding as well as your color palette and theme. There are a number of ways you can express to your guests the feeling you want for your big day.
Tip #1: The wording you choose is very important. The text will convey whether the wedding is formal or casual. For example a wedding invite that reads: "The honor of your presence" invokes a formal feel, especially when accompanied with "black tie or black tie optional" at the bottom.
A casual or less formal wedding invite may read: "request the pleasure of your company" or "share in the celebration".
You may even decide to write something about festive attire, such as "Beach Chic" if your wedding will be on or near a beach.
