3 Things Not to Say on Your Wedding Invitations

Many things about the modern day wedding celebration have changed and evolved over the years. Even wedding invitation wording has become more casual but there are still a few rules of etiquette that hold strong to this day. Here are the 3 things you should never mention on your wedding invitations:

3 Things Not to Say on Your Wedding Invitation
  • 1. Gifts or Registry
  • Wedding registry etiquette is very clear about never making any reference to gifts or registries on the wedding invitation. This information may be shared on your wedding website, which can be listed on your wedding invitation or response card. You may also share this information via word of mouth. If you would like to ask wedding guests to donate to a charity in lieu of gifts, include a separate information card with your invitation.
  • 2. No Children
  • Under no circumstances should you say “no children” anywhere in the invitation ensemble. Address the inner envelopes to include the name of each person invited. This step tells your wedding guests exactly who is invited. You can also choose limited-seats wording for you response cards. Read How to Word Your RSVP Cards for an example.
  • 3. Pre- or Post-Wedding Events
  • Never mention pre- or post-wedding events on the wedding invitation. The rehearsal dinner information can be communicated by word of mouth or you can send rehearsal dinner invitations. For day-after events such as brunches and gift openings, include a separate information card with your invitation.
