Make your wedding stationery wording perfect with our handy guides.
Each page and it's downloadable wedding wording PDF has been crafted to make putting together your wording easy and stress-free. We've tried to keep it from making you feel overwhelmed by choice while still giving you a great selection of wedding wording templates to pick from, as well as making sure we've included as many tips and tricks as we can. But here's a few more general bits of great advice we've gleaned over the years that may also help!
Throw all your ideas of grammar out the window - wedding wording has it's own set of rules.
We know, it seems so counter-intuitive to not make sure you've got your punctuation and grammar in place, but wedding wording is a different beast from anything else! You don't need to stick to normal grammar and punctuation rules on Save the Date card wording, or on engagement, hen's, buck's, or wedding invitation wording - or on RSVP cards either. The focus here is on the flow of your wording rather than ensuring it's all prim and proper perfect grammar - so you don't need to end sentences with full stops, or pop commas between each part of an address or date.
Postcodes don't need to be included in your invitation wording!
This is always a weird one when you're writing out your wedding invitation wording, or Save the Date cards, or engagement wording, and feels so odd! All you need to include for your venue addresses on the invitation is the street, suburb, city, state and, if needed, country. The only time you may need to include a venue's postcode on your invitation is if you're getting hitched overseas - Japan, Croatia, Indonesia, Malaysia and India in particular need that extra bit of info included to make sure it's easy for guests to find their way to the venue without getting lost. But if you're getting married here in Australia, you can leave that postcode off. You'll only need to include it on your RSVP postcards, and of course for any guest addresses on envelopes so they all make it to the right place.
Capitalisation isn't king on a wedding invitation.
Wedding invitation wording is a peculiar thing, and it just gets more peculiar with the little details - like this one! For instance, even if it's a separate paragraph, you don't need to make sure every single starting letter is capitalised. Here's an example of what we mean - you'll notice that the capitalisation is only left to venues and their addresses, as well as days, months and names!

As you can see, only dates, names, and the venue and address has had capitalisation for that first letter - the 'invite' line wording and 'on' before the date are left as if they're a continuing sentence. The origins of why this is done is completely lost to us, but it does make for a smooth, easy read - it just flows so beautifully, like a wedding invitation should! No stilted sentences or, even worse, odd-looking lines to worry about.
Date formatting will depend on your wedding location.
Here in Australia - and in a good chunk of the world - you'll find that when you're writing out your wedding date, it will be the name of the day, the number of the day, the month and then the year. The only time this switches is if you're getting married in the United States - the US uses a very different date format of Month, Day, Year - which, if you're choosing to go for a numerical date only, gets pretty confusing for everyone else.
Here's a quick example of an Australian or general global date format, both in full and in numerical style.
Sunday 5th November 2025 or 5.11.2025
And here's it's American counterpart.
Sunday November 5th 2025 or 11.05.2025
So, long story short is that unless you're getting married in the US - or any country that follows an American date format system, we'll always format the date as Day, Month, then Year.
At the end of the day, you don't need to worry too much about formatting when we're creating your wedding stationery.
Because that's our job! We'll tidy up any errant punctuation and make sure it's laid out for the perfect visual balance, as well as ensuring the wording just reads and flows beautifully. If we think an alternative sentence will work better for your wording, we'll always give you options to choose from along with the original wording so you can compare them both side by side during proofing.
We'll do almost anything for love, but we won't do that.
The only thing we don't do is spellcheck as we don't assume we know your venue, guest names and addresses better than you do: so we always recommend making sure you check your proofs carefully and get a second and third pair of eyes on it! The human brain actually gets used to reading the same thing over and over again very, very quickly and while you'll be reading everything, it'll start picking up only the first and last letter of each word and filling in the rest automatically for you. So having extra eyes giving your wedding invitation wording a check is always a great idea.
Mix and match the wording, but don't mix and match the viewpoint.
We love it when our beautiful couples get inspo from our PDF guides and craft their own truly unique wording with the bits they love from each wedding wording template. But pay attention to the point of view, as it can change the flow of your wording for the worse. So if you choose to start with 'together with our families', which is first person view, you want to continue using 'our' and 'us' and 'we' throughout instead of switching it halfway through to 'their' and 'them' and 'they' - which is third person view.

We loved the design options with Paper & Ink Studio and their reasonable prices were also a positive. Communication was fast and friendly, we were given multiple opportunities to make changes and really happy with the final finished product. The free magnets and stickers with our initials for our invites were a nice touch too. Would definitely recommend!
Lala and her team were amazing to deal with. I opted to phone to talk through my options and was fortunate to have Lala answer and guide me through the entire ordering process. She was helpful, understanding and lovely to deal with. We ordered invites, finer details cards, envelopes and she assisted us to order personalised stamps which completed the invites beautifully. I later ordered some on the day stationary. Everything arrived quickly, shipped over to Sydney and looked better than wed hoped for. We had so many compliments. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them . Thank you xx Lisa and Sam
