Wedding Stationery Wording Examples

Hellooooo it's 2019… Wedding Stationery wording doesn't need to be as formal as it used to be if you don't want it to be.

Modern Times

Short sweet and to the point has become more and more popular over the years. There are many ways to ask for your guest's attendance at your wedding. Modern wording is popular for same sex weddings and those having a chilled less formal wedding day.

Here are few options:

• "The pleasure of your company"

• "At the marriage of their children"

• "____ would love for you to join them"

• "____ invite you to celebrate with them"

• "The honour of your presence is requested"

Not mentioning the parents?

With great pleasure

Stacey & Peter

invite you to join them at the celebration of their marriage

Saturday, July 9, 2016 at two thirty in the afternoon


Please join us for the wedding of

Henry Ahn & Steve Wright

Sunday 4th of December, 2018 at 2pm



If this applies to you, here is an example of an invitation of the most traditional kind (bride’s parents, as host, announce the wedding)

*Note that the parents are addressed by both of the brides’ father’s first, middle and last names.

Mr & Mrs Steve John Smith cordially invite you to attend

the wedding ceremony of their daughter

Mary Jane Smith to Andrew Scott Cross

Sunday the 2nd of October 2016


Modern Traditional

These days however, the groom’s parents appear on the invitation, even though they are not ‘hosting’. This is really a gesture of respect and love to recognise both sets of parents.

Mr John & Mrs Jane Smith

cordially invite you to attend the wedding ceremony of their daughter

Sarah Jane Smith To Andrew Scott Cross

Son of Mr Lance & Mrs Serena Cross

Sunday the 2nd of October 2016


Alternately, parents of both the bride and groom may host the wedding, in which case, they are each addressed appropriately, this is the most popular form of wording that we use.

Mr John & Mrs Jane Smith together with Mr Lance & Mrs Serena Lincon

request the honour of your presence to witness the marriage of their children

Sarah Jane Smith and Andrew Scott Lincon

Sunday the 2nd of October 2016


One Deceased Parent

Mr. Adam French and the late Iris French together with Mr. Camden and Elizabeth Mahoney, request the honor of your presence at the wedding of their children Sarah & Sam

Sunday 12th June 2016


Remember | they're you're invitations and you wont be hung for choosing exactly what you prefer and suits you as a couple or your wedding vibe.

Wishing Well Wording (The Part About Gifts)


Soon you will hear our wedding bell, As friends and family wish us well. Our household thoughts are not brand new, We have twice the things we need for two. Since we have our share of dishes and bedding, We’re having instead a wishing well wedding. But more important, we ask of you, Your prayers of love and blessings, too!

2 Our two families have come together as one. We really hope you can join in the fun. A wishing well we thought would be great, but only if you wish to participate. A gift of money is placed in the well, then make a special wish, but do not tell! Please do not be offended by our request, as our day is complete having you as a guest.

3 If you were thinking of giving a gift to help us on our way. A gift of cash towards our house would really make our day. However, if you prefer a gift, feel free to surprise us in your own special way

4 If finding a gift is hard to do, Perhaps our wishing well is for you. A gift of money is placed in the well. Then make a wish… but do not tell. If, however, a gift you’d prefer to find. Be assured we will not mind.

5 Soon we are to be Mr & Mrs

We don’t need a wedding list of dishes.

Our life together has already begun

We have almost everything under the sun:

Two kettles, two toasters, two microwaves

Though we also have dreams for which to save.

Our dream is to honeymoon in a foreign land

And walk along the beach hand in hand. If you would like to give us a gift

A contribution towards this would give us a lift.

We like to think of it as our ‘Wishing Well’

Which will be filled with your love, we can tell!

But the most important thing to say Is that you are there to celebrate our day!

6 So what do you get For the Bride and Groom,

Whose house needs things In every room?

When shopping for a gift, You needn’t be rash,

As there’s always the option, To just give cash!

We hope you don’t find, Our request to be funny

The decision is yours: To buy a present or give money.

Now you have the choice, Please do not fuss.

The most important thing of all, Is that you’re there to celebrate with us!
