Ours were definitely not traditional. I got mine from Pinterest. They said:


Dave & Lindsey

would be honored if you’d be at


at 3:30 pm on Saturday, July 28th

to celebrate what they will refer to from now on as their BIG DAY.


Here’s a picture:

I’m in the same boat….my Fiance and I have been together 9 years and lived together 6 and owned a house for 4……we’re so not “starting a life together’….so finding perfect wording is hard….AND I don’t want it to sound TOO informal since it IS at a golf club…mind you, saying that it’s at “The b— Golf and Country Club” should clue people in, right?

It started with this:

“This day I will marry my best friend; the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love.”

Then the rest of the blah-blah-blahs…

@iheartsquishy:  I love the wording you used! I wish we could go that route because it fits our off-beat personalities, but our families are very conservative and anything too out-there would confuse them. We’re going with something like:

Together with their families,

R and A 

Joyfully invite you to celebrate with them as they exchange wedding vows at

@RockStar33:  Thats great, I love those!!

My FI’s family would have flipped at that, though.

@LuluInLove:  Our wedding is far from formal. And we’ve told everyone that. We’re only having about 20 people, so it was easy to spread the word. And nobody cared about the lack of traditional wording. We just had a bbq today and kind of gave a quick rundown of the plan.

@LuluInLove:   Nope because they know it’s who we are.  They were probably more shocked that there wasn’t actually a swear word on it lol.
