Spring or Summer Wedding - Invitation Wording

While June remains a popular month for tying the knot, weddings happen year-round. Some couples choose a particular season in which to marry because of sentimental reasons. They may set their wedding date around the time they went on their first date or to commemorate the proposal. If you're planning a spring or summer wedding, you can word your invitations to fit in with the season, thereby tying your invites more closely to the time of year.

A few things to consider:

  • Get as creative as you like, but make it clear that this is a wedding invitation. This means you need to include all important information so that guests know when and where your ceremony will take place.
  • Always start with the parents of the bride first.
  • Even the most casual wedding invitation still needs to include all pertinent information for guests, such as time and locale.

Here are some specific examples for formal and casual occasions.

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
  • You may list any additional details, such as "reception immediately following" or "followed by dinner and entertainment" at the end of the invitation.
  • If your wedding will have a specific theme, let your invitation reflect that by your choice of words.
  • Omit courtesy titles such as Mr. and Mrs. to keep your invitations very casual.
