I am in the process of making my invitations. What is the best way to word them? We are just sending an invite and RSVP card.

We are doing a pocketfold, so in the middle is the invite with regular writing and then on the right pocketfold is booking information, at home reception info, rsvp info and I am still contemplating a "wedding week rough outline" insert.

 

I found the idea on pinterest.  https://www.pinteres...27459185574030/

 

Another idea I saw was " With our toes in the sand and a drink in hand, we ask you to come celebrate the marriage of......."

 

We have some people invited to the reception at home but not mexico (extended family etc.) , so we will do a casual I DO BBQ invite for them.

Our invites weren't very formal.

We didn't have RSVPs that went out with these, they did it thru our website.

 

If you search invitations on here you can see all the other ladies to get some ideas!

I have got all of my wording down. I am still working on changing the fonts and colors though. After I get that worked out I will post pics! I have saved all my resorts and am taking pics as I go. My mother in law was looking at me like I was crazy…but I told her I needed pics for this forum!! Hehe see thats how much I like all you ladies!

We just sent out our invites yesterday!!  I wish I had thought to check pinterest.  I only looked on this forum.

 

Great ideas

I have looked all over at invitations. I finally decided to make them, and have everything I need now. I just cannot get past formatting the actually wording (colors, fonts, sizes). What should have taken me a few hours has taken me weeks!

Personally I would stick to one, but if you wanted your names in a different font then maybe use a fancy script font for those. Otherwise I would stick to the same one throughout.

I like the font of the first sentence the best, but that's me :)

 

Your names sound so prestige, I love it!!!!

I like the first font the best too! I just like so many fonts it is hard to narrow it down to just one. Plus the mother in law thinks more than one font would look better…haven't shown her this yet though. Just trying to get opinions. Thank you for replying!

I think it may be too mismatched with too many fonts.  Changing size and using 'bold' where needed would be a great way to change things up.    Other than using a fancy script font where needed.

 

But that's the joys of choice, we can do whatever we like :) heheh!
