Wedding Invitation Wording Guidance

The Main Invitation

Your main invitation needs to include your names, your wedding date and time, and your venue name and location. It should not include your wedding website, the exact address of your venue, or any registry information.

The below links are meant to be used as examples and spark inspiration. When creating your own wording remember to make it personal!
