It is quite right: your wedding invitations text should reflect the details of your wedding, those related to date, hour and location, but also your requirements associated with the presence of your guests to this special event, if it is the case. There are weddings where couples need to point out to their guests that there is the need for certain attire or the need to attend the event without presenting any wedding gift or any other sort of request wedding couple need to address to their invitees. All these must be learned by the couple in question.

One other aspect that you should settle for is who is the one sending these wedding invitations, as this aspect will help you figure out better the way of writing your wedding invitations text. In several cases, there are parents who guarantee to take care of this detail, and thus they will be the ones to look for the wording as well as finding the invitations in co-operation with you, of course. Once the decision is taken, you should further find out the write way to do the wording. After finding  the one that suits your wedding style, you should focus on the way to have the text written: will it be the  printed format or would you go for the hand written text?

It is true that the printed format is more official, but when you come to think of the more intimate and personal style, the hand written one is always the choice to go by. There are several fonts that you can borrow in order to create your hand writing in a more calligraphic manner, but you must be also very gifted and patient enough to perform this demanding task. If there is no time for you to do this, considering the other tasks you need to achieve with the planning and all, have someone from the family do the thing. You can ask one of your bridesmaids to do this ‘job’ for you if she is skilled enough to help you with this.

Before going deeper into the matter, make sure that you write on a separate piece of paper, the wedding invitations text to be sure that you haven’t left aside any important data that your guests must know of. Look also inside the online wedding invitations wording to have the certainty that you won’t go wrong with the wording and addressing these important cards. Other sources of inspiration could be for instance, famous quotes about love, marriage and other alike. They should give you a pretty good idea on the way you need to complete the rest of the wording besides the general informative data (date, hours, locations for both the ceremony and reception).

Make sure also that you introduce the detail of the driving instructions if there are guests coming from another city who are not familiar with the places. If there are guests coming by plane, you should organize also a way to have them brought over to the wedding celebration. Let them know also the details of their arrival, to reassure then that they won’t be forgotten by the airport, but rather have a driver sent to fetch them.

After the wedding invitations text is already created, do a proofreading for several times. Have also some other eyes from the family checking on this as in  this way you are sure that you haven’t missed anything. It is very important not to forget including the locations of the ceremony and reception if they are held in separate places, along with the hour they should start and the accurate description of how to reach there. Just imagine what would happen of any of these details is missed? Wouldn’t it cost a lot of money and time your guests when needing to attend to your special event? Apart from this, driving instructions will be a sign of respect and consideration paid to your invitees, who will more than certain appreciate your efforts in this matter.
