Evening Invitation Wording | Wedding Wording Examples

PinterestRedditStumbleUponShare

Welcome to Special Day Invitations’ definitive guide to evening invitation wording for your wedding.  We have collected together an excellent set of example wordings for you to use as templates for your own evening invitations.  Evening invitations are issued to guests that will be invited to attend the evening reception but who are not invited to the earlier parts of the day (generally the wedding ceremony and following reception).  We have pulled this list of wording examples from our database of in-house templates and from some past orders.  We cover both formal and informal styles, bride/groom inviting, parents inviting, deceased parents, divorced parents.  If you are looking for invitation text related to civil partnerships then try this.

Remember : In the unlikely event that you do not find the wording you need, leave us a message (bottom of the page) so we can suggest some wording for you and add this to our database for the future.  We want to build the ultimate guide to evening invitation wording, and with your help we can make this the best resource on the internet.

  1. Hi,

    My partner and I are going to my sisters wedding aboard, as it has cost us so much we have booked a day of the holiday to get married ourselves, all the family and friends I would have invited leave 2 days early so we intend to do it on the quiet and hold a party on return. So the invitations that I would like to send out need to say …. Surprise! Look what we did, we will upset alot of people by doing it this way, but they have to accept that this is our choice. I have framed cards and will be adding a wedding picture of us into the card which will be the invitation. Please help!

    • Hi

      Yes, that is a tricky one. I think you are right, some people will inevitably be upset it’s just a matter of minimising the upset as much as possible. They will understand in time.

      I have posted a few examples on our Blog in a new post, about invitation wording for eloping

      I hope that helps!
