My wedding is very non-traditional. I wrote, “You are cordially invited to witness and celebrate the union of MY NAME and HIS NAME on DATE/TIME at PLACE. We hope to see you there!”

It was really simple.

There are so many things that you can say to invite your guests – it should be to your style and to fit the occasion. I love this source of wording on invitations – TONS of examples:

that sounds nice 🙂

we’re going even more untraditional than that – our invites are inspired by these, but we’re changing (more than) a few things.

@marywil1:  my friend just used that one and no one understood what “because you have shared in our lives” even meant! it confused people for some reason.

Here are ours. Nothing too crazy, but I didn’t want the super traditional kind either.
