HOWTO INVITE YOUR GUESTS

An­nounce your wed­ding along with its style

Mackay and Whitsundays Wedding Guide - - Contents -

ONCE you have de­cided on your guest list and have the venue locked in, it’s time to send out the in­vi­ta­tions.

This is your first op­por­tu­nity to con­firm your wed­ding lo­ca­tion, theme and other in­for­ma­tion with fam­ily and friends.

The in­vi­ta­tion should start with an invite line where you tease peo­ple into the rest of the in­vi­ta­tion, with phrases such as the hon­our of your pres­ence, the plea­sure of your com­pany, or you are in­vited to share their joy as. Fol­low­ing this should be the names of the cou­ple get­ting mar­ried. You can list full names, first names only, pre­ferred names, what­ever you like.

The ac­tion line comes next. What do you want your guests to do? Do you re­quest the plea­sure of their com­pany at the cel­e­bra­tion of mar­riage or do you want them to join us as we ex­change vows of love and com­mit­ment?

The in­for­ma­tion line comes next. This should be kept to the ba­sic time, date and lo­ca­tion.

Fol­low­ing this is the party line, where you ex­plain what will hap­pen af­ter the cer­e­mony. It can be some­thing as simple as din­ner and danc­ing to fol­low. If the reception is at a dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tion, in­clude the lo­ca­tion and the time it starts.

As for the in­vi­ta­tion de­sign, you want it to re­flect the theme of your wed­ding.
