Fun Weddings

Mr. and Mrs. (Brides Parents)
Along with Mr. and Mrs. (Groom’s Parents)
Invite you to witness the wedding of their children

She’ll vow to do his laundry
And he’ll promise to come home at night
And at the end of every argument
They agree that she’ll always be right.

The honour of your presence is requested
as (Bride) and (Groom) exchange their vows
to be followed by a reception
Where we’ll all get drunk and loud!

Against their better judgment
The parents of the bride and groom
Would like to invite you to the wedding
Although they think it’s way too soon!

    Sorry, there’s nothing I can think of. But if you did have some ideas in mind we can put together a custom design for you.

    We are having a camping wedding in a campground. It’s informal and the bride and groom are paying for the event. Any suggestions would be apprieciated.

    I don’t have any suggestions for camping themed wedding wording, but as for the bride and groom paying for the wedding I have a few examples. First of all,the parent’s names are usually left off the wedding invitation.

    Here are some examples of wording:
    1) You are invited to attend the wedding of [Bride's Name] & [Groom's Name]
    2) [Bride's Name] & [Groom's Name] Joyfully invite you to share with us our celebration of love and commitment
    3) Together with our Families [Bride's Name] & [Groom's Name] invite you to join us on our wedding day

    Hope that help!

    This will be our second marriage so we don’t want a fancy wedding, we’re getting married at courthouse. We’re going to have a big reception for friends to celebrate and trying to think of something cute & catchy to invite friends to celebrate our craziness together. Any ideas? We’re doing a tropical themed reception…thanks

    Hi Julia,

    How about something like:

    Get ready to party island style as we celebrate new beginnings and new love of
    (Bride’s Name)
    & (Groom’s Name)

    Hope that helps!
