Wedding Invitation Wording Guidelines {Part Three, Casual}

We’re wrapping up our tips for the Invitation Line of your wedding invitation wording. The invitation line can sometimes be tricky since family politics can be involved. We’ve covered the traditional route and the modern route for the invitation line {that’s the line on our invitations that indicates who will be hosting your wedding} and today we are going to cover one more option – casual.

One of our goals in offering a custom design process for creating your wedding invitations was to allow every couple to personalize their stationery so that it truly reflects their personalities. It’s fun to see fun personalities shine through in the more casual designs we help couples create.

Today we’re sharing a collection of our favorite invitations with a casual invitation line. Hopefully, these will provide you with inspiration! A bonus, if your wedding day style is more traditional, you may want to consider one of these options for your rehearsal or brunch invitations.

Our Roseberry design begins with a gleeful exclamation! This sweet start really sets the tone for this casual wedding.

There’s something to be said for keeping it simple. Our Vreeland design is a perfect example of simplicity making a big statement. In addition, just using first names of the couple keep things casual.

The type treatment used on the names of this couple make quite a statement. The day is all about you! So, why not select a script font with all the embellishments to celebrate the new couple like our Lavinia design!

With the three main options for the top portion of your wedding invitation wording, next up we will cover the best ways to outline the time + place of your wedding as well as any additional details you need to share with your wedding guests.

Suite Spotlight – Camille Letterpress Wedding Invitation

At Dauphine Press we’re fans of seeing a process from start to finish. Last week we mentioned how all of our designs are created from inspiration boards and how we love this tool for couples planning their wedding. We feel so lucky to be in the position of creating something physical and tangible based on an inspiration board that someone lovingly created to honor their union. This is what our entire custom design process is all about! Save the Date cards and Invitations are often the first physical element of your wedding! We all know that your wedding stationery is the first glimpse your guests get into the upcoming soiree, but it’s also the first piece of your vision to materialize. That’s a big deal! One that we don’t take lightly.

We created our custom design process to make sure that you can be involved in that process – from start to finish – and put your personal touches on every element along the way. We love working with our clients, hearing your vision, collecting ideas from an inspiration board and watching a unique design develop. We love hearing from our brides and grooms about that moment when you first opened your package from us, holding your wedding invitation in your hands for the first time – one that you created from start to finish and how the excitement about the big day starts to reveal itself from that point!

Today’s spotlight is on Camille, a square letterpress wedding invitation suite. Camille is another one of our versatile designs that we hope will inspire you to create your own wedding invitation. With its decorative frame and patterned background, this letterpress invitation can take on many looks just by simply choosing different patterns and colors. Take a peek at the path we took for this original design:
