Wedding Announcements vs. Invitations

Print Email

Although the same card can be used as a wedding announcement or an invitation, there are distinct uses of wording that can transform it from one to the other. Many couples getting married want to announce their special occasion, but aren't having a large wedding that can accommodate everyone. You won't have to worry about those receiving an announcement mistaking it for an invitation since they should be sent out the day of the wedding or shortly after. If you are one such couple, here is one suggestion for your wedding announcement wording:

Mr. and Mr. Bruce Thompson
have the honour of announcing
the marriage of their daughter
Sarah Michelle

to

Mr. Michael Dean Slater
on Friday, the fifteenth of December
Two thousand and seven
St. Mary's Cathedral
Bellingham, Washington
