The way that you word wedding invitations can clue guests in to the type of nuptials that you’re having as well as the dress code for the event. Therefore, it’s important to take the time to really figure out the best way to word your invites. After you’ve decided on the theme and style of your big day, you’re ready to start wording. Here’s how to word wedding invitations based on your custom affair:

How to word wedding invitations

A vintage wedding
After you’ve found the perfect vintage wedding invitation, you’ll want to find the best wording to match. Consider including a quote from your favorite piece of romantic literature, which would blend well with your antique theme. Your wording doesn’t have to stick to a traditional format – instead, look for text that evokes who you are as a couple. Take this block of text for example:

“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.” – Sarah Dessen.

A destination wedding
If you’re lucky enough to be tying the knot on a beach in some tropical destination, why not have your wording reflect that? The text on your invitations should be just as calm, serene and beautiful as the waves crashing behind you as you say “I do.” For example, this Starfish – Invitation featuring two starfish hand-in-hand reads, “Friends forever we will be whether walking on the beach or sailing on the sea.”

A sports wedding
For the couple who is as obsessed with sports as they are with each other, you’ll want invitations that speak to that passion. It could be something as simple as “Wedding? Game on!” Or you could choose to feature a play on words like “Swing in for cocktails.” My favorite has to be this Chevron Charm – All in One Invitation that reads, “Diamonds are forever … especially when you share a love for baseball.” Aww!
