Las Vegas Wedding - Invitation Wording

Las Vegas weddings can be as wild and wacky as you like; they can also be quite traditional and tame. When wording wedding invitations for ceremonies taking place in this well-known city, make sure your tone matches the type of wedding you wish to have.

  • Theme weddings are a big thing in Vegas. This allows for a lot of creativity when creating invitations, whether your theme is Casino Night or All Things Elvis.
  • Poker chips, playing cards, lights and circus-themed items are all appropriate invitation embellishments if your nuptials will stick to a theme.

A few things to consider:

  • If your Vegas wedding leans toward a formal feel, make sure your invitations reflect that, so that guests know what to expect on your big day.
  • Since Las Vegas is known for many over-the-top performers and impersonators, ask guests to come dressed as their favorite artist.
  • Because gambling is such a big part of Vegas tourism, consider wording invitations with gambling-related phrases.

Here are some specific examples of formal and casual options.

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
  • Using Mr., Ms. or Miss is optional for the bride and groom, but expected for the names of parents.
  • You can tone down the formality by omitting the traditional English spelling of "honour" and instead use the word "honor."
  • Use Ms. or Miss for the bride, but a slightly more informal invitation can just use first and middle names.
