Humorous Wording - Wedding Invitations

You and your future spouse love to laugh, and everyone who knows the two of you knows it. Why not add your sparkling humor to your wedding invitations?

While many couples adhere to the traditional invitation format, you have more freedom if sticking to tradition isn't your cup of tea. Humorous wedding invitations allow you to express more of your personality, and are generally very memorable to your guests.

A few things to consider:

  • Even the most creatively worded wedding invitations should include all pertinent information, so that guests know it's a wedding, and when and where it will be.
  • Keep it classy when wording your invitations. You may need to experiment with various wording examples to make sure your invites don't offend anyone.
  • If you're getting married in a religious venue, a humorous invitation may not be considered as appropriate.
  • When opting for unique wording, there's no need to stick with traditional formalities. However, your invites may still be more formal when you spell out dates and times in lieu of using Arabic numerals.

Here are some specific formal and casual examples.

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.
