Wedding Invitation

Simplethings Press

Traditionally whoever paid for the wedding were considered the hosts and were therefore given the right to have their name in print on the wedding invitation.

However with cost splitting, remarriages and re-remarriages the humble wedding invitation is beginning to read more like the wedding family tree.

Here are some suggestions for the wedding invitations opening lines:

French fold and double wedding invitations

In many cultures double wedding invitations are the tradtional format. The wedding invitation is written twice from both sets of parents, the bride's on the left and the groom's on the right. French fold wedding invitations are folded twice, once horizontally and once vertically.

Double invitations are a good solution if you need to print wedding invitations in two languages.
