Unique Wording - Wedding Invitations

You're planning a unique event that's as much about celebrating your nuptials as it is about making the day unforgettable for everyone. Instead of going the traditional route, you want something more modern and in fitting with your personality.

You have many options when choosing unique wording for your wedding invitations. This is a wonderful way to express your creativity and to set the tone for the big day to come.

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.
  • 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 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.
