We know that wording your wedding invitations can be tricky,
so here's some advice, hints and examples to help you along the way!
Traditionally in the UK, wedding invitations are addressed from the
Bride's parents, but these days anything goes in terms of wording!
However, whether you're planning formal affair or a more relaxed soiree,
here's a few things that you'll need to think about ...
If someone other than the Bride and Groom are funding the wedding,
for instance the parents, then it's a nice idea to include them on the invite.
If you're planning a more relaxed day then informal wording may be best.
Similarly, if you're wanting your day to be more traditional or formal then
you'll want to choose wording to match.
Of course, we know that it goes without saying that it's very important
for you include things like your date, location and names, but we thought
that we'd make a list of all the very important details so that you won't
be missing any of the really important details!

daytime invitation or an evening invitation
