- Wedding: October 2012
I am in the process of making my wedding invitations and am struggling with the wording. I was told if it was a religious ceremony there were certain words that should be used. I’m not sure how I feel about the formality of ‘request the honour of your presence’ but I also don’t want the invites to sounds too casual like it is to a bbq.
Here are the details about my wedding:
Religious ceremony in a church followed by banquet hall reception.
Technically a traditional wedding, however I am going for a more intimate vibe as opposed to grand and fancy. Think cozy garden wedding feel (but indoors).
My parents are contributing a considerable sum towards the wedding, but are ok with wording the invites in a way that doesn’t suggest they are ‘hosting’.
So… how does this sound? All input is appreciated. Apologies if the formatting is off… I copied and pasted from word.
