Wedding Announcement Wording

It’s sad, but it’s the truth: you just can’t invite everybody to your wedding. Maybe you had a small destination wedding, an intimate elopement or maybe your families are so huge you had to stop the guest list at aunts and uncles.

Don’t worry, there is a way to share your news with everyone you love — and we’re not talking Facebook and Instagram. How? By sending professionally printed wedding announcements. Everyone will know things are official when they receive THAT in the mail!

There are plenty of designs to choose from for wedding announcements but you may also revise your wedding invitations to be announcements. It’s all in the wording!

Wedding Announcement Wording

Here are some examples of wedding announcement wording:

If you’re formal
Mr. and Mrs. Richard Thompson
and
Mr. and Mrs. Jules Venetta
have the pleasure of announcing
the marriage of their children
Elizabeth Anne
and
Martin Jules
on the twelfth of November
two thousand sixteen
at the Church of the Holy Trinity
Boston, Massachusetts

If you’re informal
We tied the knot!
We’re happy to announce our marriage
on the twelfth of November
two thousand sixteen
in Montego Bay, Jamaica
Thank you so much for your love and support
that brought us to this day!
Elizabeth Anne Thompson
and
Martin Jules Venetta

If you’re hosting a reception
Elizabeth and Martin Venetta
request the honor of your presence
at a celebration of their marriage
on the nineteenth of November
two thousand sixteen
Country Inn & Suites
Mankato, Minnesota 56001

You might be wondering what the difference is between elopement announcements and wedding announcements. Not much, really. The biggest difference would be mentioning location. Couples often elope to a fun destination and want to share where they were married on the announcements. If the couple eloped to the local county courthouse, they may forego mentioning location and just use wording that celebrates the marriage. Read Elopement Announcement Wording for some great options.
