Once you’ve found “the one” and the perfect wedding locale to match, you want your invitation wording to be exactly right. Below we’ve listed several options from formal to casual to help you inform your family and friends of your impending nuptials so they can help you celebrate your special day. Verses are divided into the following categories: both parents hosting, bride’s parents hosting, bride and groom hosting, and reception only. The stationery above was created by Yelley.

Note: The words in bold are tidbits of information you are meant to fill in accordingly.
