Country Wedding Invitations Sayings

Wedding invitation wording » wedding invitation wording

The reason you're having trouble wording your invitation is because, as you say several times, you're already married. Let's look at the definition of wedding and marriage from Webster's Dictionary.Marriage
1. The act of marrying, or the state of being married; legal union of a man and a woman for life, as husband and wife; wedlock; matrimony.
2. the social institution under which a man and woman establish their decision to live as husband and wife by legal commitments, religious ceremonies, etc.

1.the act or ceremony of marrying; marriage; nuptials.
2.the anniversary of a marriage, or its celebration: They invited guests to their silver wedding.
3.the act or an instance of blending or joining, especially opposite or contrasting elements: a perfect wedding of conservatism and liberalism.
4.Business Slang . a merger.

So by definition, you are already married and have had a wedding, since the wedding is the act of marrying. While it may not have been the big white wedding you always dreamed of, it was indeed a wedding since the end result is a marriage.

I realize that in some countries (not in the US) couples will get married legally and then have a wedding ceremony in the church, but that usually takes place soon after the legal marriage. Your wedding/marriage took place more than a year ago. You, your family and friends all know you to already be husband and wife. Planning a wedding would be confusing.

It's a bit too soon for a renewal since, again, by definition, the word renewal means to make something old new again (your vows aren't really old).

A wedding reception may take place within a year after the wedding, so it's been too long for that option too.

However, if you are a religious couple, there is a marriage blessing or, Convalidation in the Catholic Church, whereby your marriage is blessed by God. This would be the only ceremony option I see that makes sense. Do note that a blessing is not a wedding and does not have all of the same attributes or traditional festivities of a wedding. There are examples of invitation wording for the blessings at, if you decide to go that route. Please speak to your clergy at your local church.

I agree that it doesn't make sense to host any pre-wedding parties since, again, you're already married. You've already had your "last night of freedom" and you've already set up and established a home, which is the reason for a bridal shower.

I would encourage you to discuss these options with your husband and decide what you think is missing in your marriage which is compelling you to want to host a wedding now and which makes you feel as though you never had a "real" wedding. Since many couples never find that Mr/Mrs. Right, try to focus on having that blessing in your life. The dress, flowers and gifts fade, get used or packed away, but your marriage remains.

My mom has severe disabilities. She cannot do it. :( As a matter of fact, trying to figure out how to get her to my wedding and to participate in teh wedding (as she will surely want to do) is a great source of stress for me- but THAT stress is one my fiancee will be ahppy to help with becasue he knows that it is stressful and why.
I have a mother-like figure from church, but I wonder if she will have time to help? I feel bad asking for too much help.
My closest bridesmaid is my sister/MOH who lives 4 hours away...the others are all accorss the country and preoccupied with their new and/or growing families

    I am tasked to make a future wedding invitation for my sister and I don t want to make her a simple invitation. Instead, I am thinking of a not-so-graphic-intensive invitation. And by not-so-graphic-intensive invitation, I mean not the plain white paper, little design and more on words, but also not the poster type (many drawings and elements, retro-looking, and other modern stuff). She does not want her and his boyfriend s photo present in the invitation as it is too common in our country, making photoshop not really the ideal editing tool. But, she does not want a simple invitation. She wants …

    • For what you are looking to do I would stick to Illustrator since you own it. Both products would work just fine as it doesn t seem like you are doing anything complicated. There are also several sites that allow you to design invitations online without having to purchase the software. Try googling "design your own invites"

    I just want to write in the invitation that instead of giving/buying a gift for us, we will much appreciate monetary unit? just being practical.. i can t find it in the internet

    • Hi Frankly it depends on what country you live in, I think. Here in Australia we are more relaxed and practical rather than die hard traditionalists. In time this type of wedding request will catch on and no one will think worse of it. You can ask for money, but please just not on the invite. You can include a small note with a nice verse on it. More importantly it s not what you say but how you express it, nice is best. We have just done so recently and everyone has accepted our invite and have not been put off by what we have written. We also made it quite plain that we are not expecting …
