A perfect wedding invitation should be structured as follows:

The Host Line:

This should be the first line in the wedding invitation and where you mention who is hosting the wedding. It could be the bride’s family, both families, or even the intending couples. However, you should note that the host-line isn’t for sale but rather an honour you bestow on a person.

The Invitation Line:

This part is where you actually invite people-“Invite you to celebrate.” You can use any phrase you deem appropriate for this purpose, but it must be conveyed in a manner that bestows honour on the guest.

The Names:

Although this looks simple, it can be misused by an intending couple. You might ask: whose name should be on it? Whose name should be first? Many think it should be the bride’s and this is the original pattern.

The Information:

You have to be careful while structuring this line, it’s advisable to stick to the basics, so people don’t get confused. Time, date and location are significant.

The Party Line:

What should the guest expect after the wedding? Will it be at the same place or a different location? In case you aren’t serving them a full meal, this is the best part to state it, as it can make you get creative. You can include a slang, joke or a humorous quote.
