What Wording Should I Have On My Wedding Stationery????

Brides are often unsure what their wedding invitations should say and with different invites often needed for full day and evening only guests, ‘complexities’ of modern families, ‘formal’ or ‘informal’ options and the happy couple often wanting the invites to be from them instead of the more traditional invites from parents it can be difficult to know where to begin.

We asked our registered supplier Grace & Brambles from our Berkshire site to share with us some of their examples to help you ……

We will start with the more traditional invite from the parents – these come from the brides parents inviting guests to join the for the marriage of their daughter. Don’t worry if you parents have different last names it doesn’t have to make your invites complicated as we demonstrate below.
