Casual Wedding - Invitation Wording

You're not one for stuffy occasions, and this includes your own wedding day. Whether just your venue is casual or you want a casual theme across everything, including your invitations, there are ways to get your message across about your big day.

A few things to consider:

  • If your wedding will take place in a place of worship, you may want to tone down the casual feel of the wording.
  • Secular locales invite more freedom when it comes to casual invitation wording.
  • If the casual theme includes guest attire, make a note of it on the invites.

Here are some specific examples to get your creative juices flowing.

To make these options fit your needs, just change the names, dates and location information. For additional help on creating your wedding invitation wording, be sure to look for the "Make It Yours" information blocks for additional tips.

  • Make your personality shine through in a casual wedding invitation. You have more freedom for creative expression, so be sure and use it.
  • If your wedding will have a specific theme, let your invitation reflect that by your choice of words.
