How To Write The Wedding Invitations? Let’s talk about how to do this right: First of all, there should be some introduction that explains who is invited and who isn’t.
Nobody wants to feel left out or uninvited, so tell your guests what you expect from them: good behavior and making sure their outfits are modest and comfortable enough for an afternoon wedding at a rooftop. If you’re unsure if they can handle standing up for four hours, include tips in your intro text, like wearing comfy shoes with support or bringing a sweater in case they get chilly outside.
This way, they’ll know exactly what kind of event they signed up for before showing up late.
You can also give your guests some background information about the wedding or even play a game with them! Tell them that there’ll be trivia questions during the ceremony and whoever gets it right gets an extra gift.
Or you can let them know that there’s something fun waiting for everyone who arrives on time – like snacks, goodie bags, or bonus points in the trivia game.
There are so many ways how you can make this work for you! The important part is always to put yourself first and take care of your needs above all else. This way, both you and your partner will enjoy themselves instead of feeling awkward around certain people or family members.
When inviting your guests, always make sure to include the date of the event, where it’s taking place, at what time, and how they can get there if needed. Need help with the wording?

Dear family and friends,
I am pleased to invite you to attend our wedding ceremony and celebration on [date] at [time].

I’m writing to invite you to my wedding ceremony and party on [date] at [time]. It’s going to be held in [place] so everybody needs to get ready for an afternoon filled with trivia questions, presents, and snacks! This isn’t a formal event since we’re all family after all so don’t worry about your clothes. Please just try not to come drunk because only the best man is allowed behind the bar for now.
If you can’t come, please do let me know because people are coming from far away and I don’t want to make anyone feel bad by not telling them about the change in plans ahead of time. As for other details, they’ll be included in the back of this invitation along with my cell number!”

Hi everyone! I’m writing to invite you to our wedding ceremony and party on [date] at [time]. We’ll be having the event in [place], so please make sure your clothes match and your shoes can handle standing all afternoon long. Since we’ve already been together before, we don’t need to remind you about good manners or that drinking is allowed but only for those old enough (and responsible enough) to handle their alcohol.
If you can’t make it, please reply as soon as possible because people are coming from far away, and I don’t want to upset anyone by not letting them know about changes ahead of time. As for other details, they’ll be included in the back of this invitation along with my cell number!
So it’s a few weeks before your wedding, and you’ve got the list of people who are going to make up the party for you. You know everyone, or thereabouts, but sometimes there can be a couple of guests on the list that haven’t been a part of a group gathering since a certain someone from their circle said ‘I do.’ They’re not members of what one might call an unfortunate club – ‘people who have been unlucky in love, or something like that – they don’t tend to chat with others as often as everyone else.
Inviting people you haven’t seen for long
Family is easier because family tends to think about weddings more than most, and you’ll probably see them at least once every six months anyway. There’s nothing worse than getting invited to your sister’s wedding and then thinking, ‘oh… we hadn’t really spoken for a while when you realize it had been about three years, not six months. What’s wrong with us humans? In fact, there’s nothing worse than talking to someone at a party who hasn’t seen any of their family in X amount of time. Come on, people, get together more!
It’s hard to catch up with everyone, though, no matter how often they see each other or how close they are. So what do you do if you’re going to be the lucky couple getting married? How do you make sure that all your guests feel special and loved by being invited into this new chapter of yours without them feeling out of place or?
Here are some tips that have worked for us in the past to drag people out of the ‘singles only’ section of their lives to join your big day.
It’s always awkward when someone who isn’t expecting it is invited, but they’re not exactly alone either. They might have come with an established partner or even with a friend, but you want everyone there to feel like they are part of this new chapter too.
With that in mind, plan some kind words ahead of time to say or messages to send along with the invitations or on the invite itself if possible. Get everyone together and make up a quiz about yourselves where each question is about both partners in life instead of just one person. And make sure to tell everyone about the quiz before it happens, so they don’t feel like someone is questioning their relationship or feelings towards their significant other.
The joint party
We’re past ‘the awkward stage’ of knowing that there are people on the list who haven’t seen each other in a while but want them to be part of your special day regardless. So how do you make sure that nobody feels left out when they get invited? It’s easy; offer everyone (or at least all those who might be feeling like they’ve lost somebody) an invite to something else too.
One way to solve this problem would be if you had some kind words printed next to the RSVP option on every invitation, reassuring everybody that even though they weren’t going to be a part of the wedding itself, they were invited to something else too. This could be a joint party or ‘get together’ the night before your big day, a meal out for everybody the day before, breakfast at your hotel after you say ‘I do,’ etc.
