Invitation Wording

~

Below is a basic wording template for composing your wedding invitations. Couples can choose to closely follow a traditional wedding invitation format or mix it up and add their own unique personal touches. The invitation can include information about just the ceremony or reception or it can include information about both. If you are planning to invite only a few people to your ceremony you can include the reception information on the invitation and include an insert with ceremony information.
