LDS Wedding Invitation Wording

 

Tips on wording for LDS Invitaitons

Wording for LDS Wedding Invitation Designed by Terra Cooper Photography


Any wedding invitation needs to include a few basics: the names of the host(s), the bride and groom’s names, the date, time, and location of the wedding and/or reception. Finding just the right wording is always tough, but if the LDS temple is part of your wedding plans then you may have an even trickier time.

If you are being sealed in the temple, you’ll need to send out two sets of invitations: one for close friends and family invited to both the sealing and the reception, and one for all other guests who are invited to the reception or open house only.

Whatever your situation, here are some sample LDS wedding invitations that you can use:

Lily Jane Thomas

If you want to share other logistical information with your guests such as registry information, directions to the ceremony or reception locations, or whether this is an adults-only or alcohol-free reception, it’s better to include it on one of the inserts rather than on the invitation itself.

A quick look around will tell you that there are all kinds, sizes, shapes, and styles of wedding invitations out there. What’s more, complicated family situations, temple sealings, and multiple open houses make it even more difficult to say exactly what you want to say. But no matter what your style or situation, the right wedding invitation wording is out there if you’re willing to be creative and dig a little deeper.
