Modern and Non-traditional Invitation Wording

As a modern bride, you understand that for you, there is no correct wording for a wedding invitation. Your perfect wedding day will be a mix of traditions with a splash of your personality, and non-traditional wedding invitation wording can help bring this feeling to life. If you are planning a beach ceremony or have no plans of walking in to "here comes the bride", a twist on tradition may be just what you're looking for. Take a look at some of our more modern invitation wording templates for inspiration for your own invitations.

Non-Traditional Invitation Wording - A Celebration

Please join us

for a celebration of love, friendship, laughter, and family

as

Isabel Elena O'Brien

and

Jose Luis Alexander

join their hands in holy matrimony

Friday, January 16, 2010

8 o'clock in the evening

St. Luke's Church

Boulder, Colorado

This contemporary invitation wording is less formal than the traditional "request the honour of your presence" but still communicates a solemn feeling to the event. This wording also is non-traditional because it doesn't specify who is sponsoring the wedding. If you as a couple are paying or if everyone is contributing, it is common to choose non-traditional invitation wording without an official sponsor or host.

Modern Invitation Wording - Something Old, Something New

Please join us

As we celebrate new beginnings, new dreams, and most importantly, new love

at the marriage of

Lindsay Starr Hull

and

Jasper Steven Adams

Saturday, May 29, 2010

6 o'clock in the evening

The Arizona Historical Museum

Phoenix, Arizona

This wording is also less formal and would be perfect for a second wedding. If you're planning a second wedding it is customary to bend the rules of etiquette for a lighter feeling to the invitations. The opening message here is even more non-traditional than the first example and also skips over the sponsor line. Whether it is your first or second wedding, the theme of a new beginning is timeless.

Contemporary Invitation Wording - With Joy

With joy in our hearts, we,

Cristen Jean McGuane

and

John Joseph Dullaghan

Request the honor of your presence

As we exchange marriage vows

and celebrate our new life together

Saturday, June 19, 2010

The Taj Hotel

Boston, Massachusetts

This wording is simple and elegant. It incorporates the formality of "request the honor of your presence" but is made personal with phrases like "our new life together". This contemporary invitation wording makes it clear that you will be extending the invitation yourselves and is classic without being too formal.

Casual Invitation Wording - Two Become One

Two lives, two hearts

Joined together in friendship

united forever in love

It's with joy that we

Tracey Catherine Hannon

and

Ethan Michael Monserud

invite you to be with us

as we exchange our marriage vows

on the eleventh of August

Two thousand and twelve

at five o'clock in the evening

Huntington Beach Inn

San Diego, California

Another common theme that you can use is the idea of two becoming one. You will find many more casual invitation wording examples that carry this idea in the introduction of the invitation. Once again, wording your invitation this way will be more casual than a traditional invitation, but still has a romantic theme.

Fun Invitation Wording - Laugh, Live, Love

This day I will marry my best friend

the one I laugh with, live for, love




Edward Lucas Classen

and

Melissa Ann Stewart




invite you to join them as they

begin their new life together

on Saturday, the sixteenth of May

Two thousand and twelve

at five o'clock in the evening

The Mystic Inn

Stonington, Connecticut

This contemporary invitation wording has three distinctive parts to it. The first has a few short lines of text that could be traded for some poetry or even a famous quote about love, marriage, or relationships. This wording particular wording also distinguishes your names in the center with a tasteful closing at the end. The difference in spacing may seem minor but it will really change up the feel of your invitation.

The modern bride likes to keep tradition alive as part of the ceremony while bending some of the strict rules concerning etiquette. Wording your invitation can reflect both formality and your very own modern twist. Non-traditional wedding invitation wording can also be helpful if you as a couple are paying for the wedding but want to include others on the invitation. As a modern bride, or couple, your invitation should reflect the type of wedding you are planning without the pressure of following a strict format.
