Tying the knot is always a dream moment for everyone. Folks love to enjoy and cerebrate this moment with all their loved ones, friends and relatives. It is in traditions to request people for their kind presence on your special day and wedding cards have been used from years for that. Although there are several experts and online guides these days to help people choose a perfect invitation card design for their wedding, but it is not easy to choose right wordings for the same. Are you aware about different sections of any invitation card? Do you know which sections are more important over others? Are you looking for some special elements to impress your invitees?

Here we bring some tips and information about wedding invitation wordings.

Although there are several types of invitation wordings available in the market, but these are categorized in two different types, including formal and casual. The invitation wordings are further broken down in different sections, each of them having their own meaning and significance. Folks use these parts according to their requirement and understanding.

The top most section of any wedding card is Host Line, which basically defines who is hosting the event. Generally it was considered in early days that the parents of bride are only responsible for all things. But nowadays with the change in time, hosting the marriage is like a honor and anyone can host. There can be the names of your singles parents, set of parents, stepparents, or all of them together.

In other case, bride and groom are also found hosting the event by their own. In such a scenario, their names can also be used at host line. If you don’t want to specify any name, but still want to include everyone, you can use it in general way like “XYZ with their families”. Going deep into host line, the mentioned names are all about the honor and not about promotion of something. Their should be genuine names of living person who can bestow the honor in a perfect way.

Next is Invitation Line which comes below host line and defines how you invite the guests. While considering the way of talking, different folks use their unique way of talking and inviting someone. Same applies here as well, where different types of phrases can be used to convey the same message. Some of the sample phrases include “Invite you to share their joy”, “honor of your presence”, “pleasure of your company”, “Want you to come party with us” and many others. This section can contain anything in any tone according to your requirement.

Further comes the Names Line, which obviously contains the names of two tying the knot. Most of us won’t think so much about the section of wedding cards, as it is self evident that the section will have names only. But still some points to think about exist there. Generally the name of bride is written over groom as a honor, but there may be two brides at a time or no bride as well. Other than this, dilemma can be there in deciding which last names to be printed when there are two.

Next comes the Action Line, which simply specifies the event you inviting the guests for. Again, there may be several way to use different types of phrases to convey the same message here as well. There may be phrases like “at the marriage of”, “at the celebration of their union”, “at the marriage of their children”, “at the marriage of”, “at the marriage of their daughter”, “at their marriage” and many others.

After these all, Information Line comes there which contains some useful information including the venue, time, and date. The section is to convey the information to the guests, so that to make it easy for them to be at right place at right time. The section must not be filled up with useless information and should be short and precise.

These are some of the very common sections of any wedding card, which contains their own significance.You must be aware about these all, and about the variations of texts which can be used here.

Hope you like the post.

Weddings are always special for everyone, and nobody leaves any stone upturned to make it perfect in all the aspects. There are several significant elements in the marriage ceremony, determining the success. Keeping the guest happy and satisfied is one of the key element every bride and groom are worried of. One of the most important things to keep the guests satisfied is perfect dine arrangements.

This Indian traditional beverage is loved by one and all and adding this to your menu can make your guest happy easily.
