Wedding Verse - Wedding Invitation Wording

You want your wedding invitations to have a little something extra, something that makes them memorable while still being elegant. Adding a unique verse to your invites is a simple way to truly personalize this very important part of your big day.

The perfect verse will:

  • Fit into your overall wedding theme
  • Give your potential guests an idea of what to expect

Tailor your verse to fit you as a couple. A bride and groom who are known for their over-the-top style should choose a big and flamboyant type of verse. Likewise, if the couple is artistic, choose a verse that reflects that.

A few things to consider:

  • If your wedding will take place in a religious venue, this is a great opportunity to use a religious verse on your invites.
  • Brides and grooms should consult with one another when coming up with unique verses. They may choose a poem together or song lyrics. What’s most important is that the wording is meaningful to both of them.
  • 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.

Make It Yours
  • Omitting middle names is an easy way to make an invitation more casual.
  • Include the location address unless it is being more clearly detailed in another enclosure with your invitation.
  • Keep the verses on the shorter side. Your invitation should still fit on one page.
