Stuck with what to write on your wedding invitations? Take a scroll through these ideas, with everything from fun to formal to inspire you
“By using first name only this feels like a more relaxed, laid-back wedding, in keeping with the floral design,” explains Holly Chapman at Papier. “Perfect for couples who are organising the wedding themselves and aren’t fussed about traditions.”
“Increasingly, I find that clients are choosing to be the invitees – they want the invitation to come from them,” says Origami Fox’s Anna. “If couples are still looking for a nod to their families, we’ll often include ‘The parents of’ or ‘Along with their families’. Here, sans-serif typography gave Hadleigh and Steph the modern, clean, bright and fun vibe they were after.”
“Leanne and Simon asked for contemporary stationery with a vintage twist,” says Michael Melvin at Beautiful Wedding Stationery. “The language has a slightly formal, traditional overtone without being too wordy. The modern condensed font married with traditional serif helps balance the old and the new.”
TIED TO YOUR THEME
“Michael and Katherine were looking for Victorian-meets-psychedelia, so I chose a vintage typeface and flourishes, styling it like an 18th-century advert. Their wording also followed this theme, albeit more tongue-in-cheek than serious,” Anna of Origami Fox says.
PERSONALISED TO YOU
“Lynn and Hammy wanted very informal invites, incorporating a black and yellow colour scheme,” recalls Two Tabbies’ Jenni. “They were after basic and straightforward wording to avoid clutter, and the main focus of the stationery was to be the ‘long story short’ of how they met.”
