Here Are Free Sites Where You Can Find Wedding Invitation Templates For Your Marriage (2022)

When it comes to styles, the possibilities are almost endless for informal ceremonies. However, the invitations to the vast majority of weddings adhere to a predetermined set of traditions. The following is an example of a typical invitation for a wedding:

Mr. and Mrs. John Doe
request the honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
Kathryn Marie
Mr. James Henry Smith
on Saturday, the tenth of July
two thousand and five
at seven o’clock
First Baptist Church
222 Ellerbe Road
Paris, Texas

As for a formal wedding template, there are some rules of wording that are appropriate:

1. Spell out every word, even the date and year. Street, not St. Road, not Rd.
2. Use Roman numerals in titles, such as David Kenneth Williams III. Do not use “3rd” or “third”.
3. For weddings in a church, say “request the honour of your presence”. For non-religious weddings, say “request the pleasure of your company”.
4. Write out full names. Do not use initials.

You can copy and paste this template onto your word processor for easy guidance:

(the name of bride’s parents/parent)
request the honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
(the name of bride)
(the name of groom)
on (weekday name),
the (day of month, spelled out) of (month)
at (time, spelled out) o’clock
(name of church or building)
(address of church/building)
(city, state of ceremony)

Reception Immediately Following
(name of location)

Directions to the reception hall can be given at the wedding or on a separate card in the invitation envelope.
