Deciding the wording on your invitations is tricky business, well I know this now.
When I looked into the wording I saw all the options that were available. It started with who was inviting guests and wow I didn’t realise there were so many variations: Parents, family, children, religious and the couple themselves.
I didn’t want to be too formal, as we are having a picnic wedding, but I didn’t want it to be too casual that people didn’t see how important this was to my fiance and I. We cancelled out the religious one first as neither of us have a particular faith. Then we cancelled out the parents because whilst it would have been nice they haven’t been very involved in the planning process and well my father has passed away so I wasn’t too sure on how the wording would work, extra work that I didn’t need.
Then we had to decide between us inviting our guests or the kids. I thought the kids would be cute but went with us inviting them. In the end it came down to the fact that I wanted this to be something special for Mehdi, my fiance, and I. Whist we are a family with our children we are also us as a couple and it was going to be our 10 year anniversary and you know what, that is pretty big.
