Creative Wording for Wedding Invitations

Wedding invitation

If you are having a traditional wedding in a church, ballroom, or other customary location and it's a formal or semi-formal event, then traditional wedding wording is the way to go. If you are hosting a theme wedding or a casual affair, then you can go more to the creative side when writing your wedding invitation wording. The wording might rhyme, include light humor, or include romantic notions beyond just offering important details.

Short and Sweet

Keeping your wording simple and understated lets your invitation shine.

Interests or Hobbies

You and your groom have hobbies and things that interest you. For example, you might love to travel, or go on adventures together. Maybe you've already traveled some of the world together and you want to incorporate this into your wedding. Start by weaving your favorite hobbies into the wording of your invitation.

Free Creatively Worded Printable Invitations

The wording for your wedding invitation should stand out, but it should still complement your own unique style and coordinate with the theme for your ceremony and reception.

Fairytale Wedding

If you like the idea of a fairytale wedding without all the formality, reflect your lighthearted, romantic style with the wording in this invitation.

Medieval Wedding

A medieval themed wedding can be great fun for all while still being quite romantic. This is an ideal theme for couples who enjoy taking part in historical recreations or Renaissance Faires. The invitation should reflect your love of the time period, but it can be as formal, traditional, or as casual as you'd like it to be. Consider printing the invitations on a parchment-like paper for a really great medieval look that will match your wedding theme.

Outdoor Wedding

If you're a couple with a love of nature and are planning an intimate, simple outdoor ceremony in the woods, an invitation printed on recycled paper in an earthy color provides a wonderful way to set the tone for your wedding.

Keep It Simple

Make sure your invitation is simple to understand since some guests tend to skim the invite information. It's usually best to avoid long, drawn out wording that can lead to confusion. An eye-catching design and the right amount of information can produce the right wedding invitation that fits the style and tone of your ceremony.
