What is an example of funny wedding invitation wording?

Time to get creative! Think about your and your partner’s sense of humor and favorite jokes and puns to see what can be incorporated into your funny wedding invitation wording. Look to these one-liners to get started:

  • Join us for an open bar… and a wedding!
  • Sh*t just got real!
  • You in?
  • Eat, drink, and be married.
  • Free cake!

What is the important wedding invitation wording that still needs to be included?

While you can laugh with your wedding invitation wording, you still need to include some seriously important information within it. Your wedding invitation wording should always include:

  • The hosts (for example, the couple’s parents or the couple themselves)
  • The request of the guests’ presence
  • The names of the couple
  • The date of the wedding
  • The time of the wedding
  • The location of the wedding
  • The time and location of the reception
  • The dress code
  • Lodging information
  • How and when guests can RSVP (this can be included on a separate RSVP card)
