Wedding is a kind of stressful event because many people think that it should be perfect. Thus, any details must be thought critically and mistakes cannot be accepted. What about invitation card? Although you want to show your artistic taste via invitation wording, it’s purpose still giving information about ceremony. Thus, you should keep it formal at some point.
For an ordinary invitation card, we have some online outlines. For example, you should start with host line. Here, you need to write who is hosting the wedding. The crucial point the hosting family is divorced or not because if they are separated and remarried with another partner, you should include these names too. However, if you do not want to make it long, you can write “Together with their families”. Second line is invitation line that you actually invite people. This part depends on your taste if you want to denote a religious service you can use a sentence like ““The honor of your presence”. On the other hand, if you would like to use more secular tone, you can prefer “The pleasure of your company”. In the action line, you can be more poetic but if you want more casual, you can say “at the celebration of their marriage”. Then, you should move to information part. You have to write time, date and place of wedding.
Lastly, there is a party line and if you are planning to have a party after the wedding, you can write it down here. For instance, you can write that party to follow at 8pm or dinner and dancing immediately following. This part is up to your type of party.
