Hi Friends! That’s right, today on Small Talk Big Day I’m going to make sure you’re clear on what to avoid printing on that pretty paper!
- Registry Information: You want your invitation to be about the celebration, not the gifts. Instead of on your invites, include registry information on your wedding website with your shower invitation or use good ole’ fashion word-of-mouth. Your family and wedding party will help spread the word and this will save space on your beautiful invites for specifics regarding venue and wedding date.
- Rules Regarding Children: Leave off any language that encourages guests to leave the kids at home. If you prefer an adults only event, just be very specific when addressing the invitation and only list the names of the guests invited. This is not an uncommon request for almost newlyweds, a lot of couples prefer that children don’t attend the big day. Just remember to be precise and only address the invitation with the names of the guests that are invited.
- Food & Beverage Detail: Leave the entree selections to the response card. If you’re having a dry reception or a limited alcohol selection, there’s no need to mention that, your guests will figure it out when they get there. If this feels too limiting, don’t worry, your wedding website or enclosure cards are a great way to share any fun and extra information!
