Must-Have Wedding Invitation Guide For 2023

The wedding invitation is one of the most important parts of your wedding. It gives your guests a sense of what to expect from your celebration and lets them know how much they will enjoy being part of your day.

Here are some must-have elements for your wedding invitations:

Show them the address

A map showing where you will be getting married. If you have a venue with multiple locations in mind, include a map for each location that shows where guests need to go for their seating assignments. This will help guests feel like they know where they’re supposed to be.

List the happenings at the event

A list of what time each event takes place and where the events are happening. This helps guests plan their day so they can get there on time without missing anything important (or getting lost).

Communicate the theme of the wedding

The theme of our wedding is all about celebrating our love for each other and for the people who make up our family and support us in our relationship. We want to celebrate with them, and we want them to feel like they’re part of this special day too.

Provide info about gathering point

If you are hosting your wedding reception at a different venue, include this information in your invitation. Also include information on whether transportation will be provided or if guests should make their own arrangements. If you are inviting guests to the evening celebrations, make sure this is clear on the invitation.

Now you have gathered all the details to write in your wedding invitation; the next step is to start writing or typing the wedding invitation.

Steps to Write a Wedding Invitation

Writing a wedding invitation can be hard. You want to make sure the invite is beautiful, of course, but you also need to make sure it gets sent out on time and that everyone has enough time to RSVP. Also, to get some inspiration of nice wedding invitations, you can take a look at BeFunky templates and even design online before creating your own on a paper.

Here are a few tips for how to write (or type) your wedding invitation in a way that will make you look like a pro:

  1. Make sure you’re using the right kind of paper. This is important because you don’t want it to look like you’re trying too hard or that you didn’t care enough about the details, but you also want it to feel special. You can find paper in many different colors and patterns, so pick one that works with your theme and colors!
  2. When it comes to choosing colors for your simple save the dates wedding cards, there are so many options out there. Choose the colors according to your wedding theme.
  3. Make sure there’s plenty of space between the lines so that people can easily read them. If you have any long names or words, try breaking them up into two lines – this will help prevent them from being too crowded together on one line!
  4. Check for grammar mistakes before sending out invitations so that nothing looks unprofessional or embarrassing!

When your wedding invitations are ready, send them to guests at their earliest convenience. We suggest sending your solicitations 2-3 months before your wedding, yet to give your visitors somewhat more opportunity to get ready for their movement, then we recommend 3-4 months.

You can always send out early save the dates and let everyone know that they’ll be getting their formal invitation soon, then wait until closer to the event date to send out the formal invite. If you’re having a destination wedding or expecting guests who need to make arrangements for travel and accommodation, we recommend giving them as much notice as possible.
