A top FAQ from my clients? You want etiquette-approved wedding invitation wording examples for no children, divorced parents, and other tricky scenarios. I hear ya–so today’s post is just for you, friend!
Figuring out wedding invitation wording is no easy task, on top of the fact that you might have a delicate situation to navigate through.
And let me just give you a bit of #truth–I do this EVERY day and there are STILL new wording questions that pop up.
Thankfully, I’ve been able to walk all of my clients through it, and, today, I am going to help you do the same.
Why? Because wordsmithing your way to the perfect invitation shouldn’t be complicated.
I was in your shoes six years ago, staring at a blank cursor on the computer screen with an old etiquette book in hand. What are these things supposed to say?

My mom, husband and I all contributed financially, with my husband paying the majority. My parents are divorced. His father has passed. With so many moving parts, I had no idea who the wedding hosts were, how to honor his father, or how to include both of my parents (father remarried) on the invitation. (“Together with their families” anyone?)
Now… I know exactly what I would have done six years ago.
And I’m going to tell you all the things I wish I would have known then. Because the next best thing to hiring a wedding stationery pro is getting free advice from one with six years of industry experience in her back pocket and Crane & Co.’s Wedding Blue Book at her fingertips.
Today, I’ll walk through how to carefully craft wedding invitation wording for delicate situations like:
