Wedding Invitation Verses and Wording

You may want to use wedding invitation verses to spice up your wedding invitations. A verse adds a bit of poetry and can even personalize the wedding invitations a little more. I have included a few examples of how you could word your wedding invitations as well as ways to come up with verses yourself.

The following is an example of an invitation in which both families are inviting guests to attend a wedding.

The example above and the one below are invitation wordings that I have adapted by looking at some of the examples given by the invitation consultants.

They have a large variety of really beautiful wedding invitations and examples of what you could use for wording choices.

The invitation below shows how you can use a short verse at the beginning of an invitation to add a little something special to simple wording.

The invitation below have the bride and groom inviting guests to their wedding instead of their parents.

This day our hearts are joined as one
share with us this new beginning the first day of our life together
on Sunday, the eighth of October
two thousand seventeen
at three o’clock in the afternoon

There are a few different ways that you can come up wedding invitation verses.

There is a hymn that was written by John Fawcett in the 1700's, that we sang in church
at the end of Sunday morning service.

I have seen this part of it "Blessed be the tie that binds, Our hearts in Christian love;" used at the beginning of an invitation. 

You could also use an actual verse from the Bible like "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one
flesh" which is taken from the New International Version of Genesis 2:24 and Matthew 19:5.

I was watching the Young and the Restless recently (yes I still watch soap operas) and Dylan said this really romantic thing to Chelsea that made me say, "Wow!".

Even though I can't remember it now it really had an affect on me when I heard it. So if you hear something while watching television and use that or you might want to use some words from a favorite song.

I love the song "At Last" sung by Etta James so much that it was used for our first dance. I think that the first stanza of the song has words that would be nice for a wedding invitation.

You could even use a romantic line from a movie that you have seen. Use these examples to possibly come up with some unique wording of your own.
