How to Word Your Invitation When You’re Paying for Your Own Wedding

How to Word Your Wedding Invitations – Couple Inviting

When couples are customizing their wedding invitations, the most-asked questions revolve around wording, particularly etiquette concerning who to include on the invitation.

Wording your wedding invitations always begins with one key question: who is hosting the wedding?

The host of your wedding is typically the person(s) paying for the majority of the celebration. It’s often the parents of the bride, or both sets of parents. But more and more commonly, the couple themselves shouldering most of the wedding expense.

If you’re paying for your own wedding, wording your wedding invitation is simple.

Below, we’ve listed a variety of invitation wording ideas written for couples hosting their own wedding. But hold up – if you’re sharing financial responsibility with your parents (or anyone else), be sure to include them on your invitations. Not only is it proper etiquette, but it’s so important to recognize their support. If this is your situation, read up on how to word your invitations right over here.
