Hi, I'm Becky Sosa with, and I'd like to talk to you today about versing your wedding invitation. These are the words that are going to go on your invitation. You may be trying to figure out exactly what wording you want to use. Things to consider are how formal or how informal your wedding is, and who is going to be paying for your wedding. There are lots of resources out there that'll have exact wording for your invitation. Emily Post has some very strict guidelines, but this is 2009 and we don't have to follow those directly. Just make sure that if you list anybody, that you don't leave anybody else out. Many couples these days are paying for their weddings themselves. So you may want to do something as simple as just having your names. Something like, "With joyous hearts we invite you to our wedding celebration." This way you don't have any parents worried about, "Well they paid for this, and they paid for that." If you're having a more formal wedding you may want to step it up a little bit, use slightly different font. But at the same time, just have your names on there, but use words such as, "requested," and "your honor." This way people will be able to know that things are going to be a little more formal at your wedding. These are the ways you're going to want to verse your wedding invitation.
