You need wedding announcement wordings as perfect as the big day itself. Despite your desire to share your special day with everyone, you will not invite everyone. A wedding announcement can help you fill that gap. In addition, they are an attractive option for people who cannot attend your wedding or were not invited.

Personalized wedding announcements are a lovely way to let your loved ones know you have found your ‘one and only’. We have noted some important points you should review to ease your worries. We have compiled some sample wordings below to help you select the perfect wedding announcements. Before we get started, let’s go over everything you need to include and consider when you write it.

When it comes to writing a wedding announcement, there is a basic structure that needs to be followed. There are certain rules of etiquette to follow to make sure that the good news of your wedding is correctly shared with your friends and family. A wedding announcement card does not ideally have to say much. Rather, it just needs to get the message across in a courteous manner. And here is a template that you can follow:

  1. The names of the hosts (usually the parents of the bride and the groom)
  2. The announcement
  3. The names of the couple
  4. The date and time
  5. The city where the wedding was held
  6. Reception information (location and time) (optional)

Now, let’s look at a few samples of wedding announcement wording according to different situations.
