How do you word a classic wedding invitation?

Once you’ve settled on a beautiful template that reflects the tone of your big day, we’ll start you off with formal sample wording to set the tone. Don’t worry—you’ll be able to edit all of your personal details and tweak it however you like. We have plenty of examples of wedding invitation wording to help you craft the perfect message. We’re also sharing our expert wedding invitation etiquette tips to get you started on the right foot.

Once you have your invitation wording down, it’s time to address the envelope. For married guests, the most traditional address is “Mr. and Mrs. [last name].” However, for unmarried couples or women that use their maiden name, listing both full names is completely acceptable (especially if you’re not totally certain what your guests’ preferences are). Don’t forget important titles like Dr. and the standard Mr. and Mrs. when addressing your invites.
