INVITATION TIPS

 

The Bride’s name traditionally includes her first and middle names but not her title. The Bride’s surname is usually only included if it is different to the hosts or if the Bride and Groom are hosting.

The Groom’s name traditionally includes his title, first and middle names, and surname. However if the Bride and Groom are hosting or hosting with their families then often the Groom’s title is not included.

The Bride’s name should always be written before the Groom’s. For same sex marriages we suggest they are written alphabetically, unless one family is hosting, in which case their child should be written first.

For a formal invitation always use the full names of those hosting and their formal titles such as Doctor or Professor.

On evening invitations some couples choose to only use their first names for a less formal approach.

Reflect the formality of your evening reception on your invitations. If it's a fun party then keep wording relaxed, for a formal affair stick to traditional wording.

Include the address of your reception in full without any abbreviations. The postcode is not essential, but if you do include it just include the first part, for example London W1. 

Only use capital letters for names, dates and titles. Words such as; at, on, to, and, request, invite, etc should always be written without capitals. Full stops are not usually used and commas are generally only used as part of addresses if necessary, or for dates and times.
