If your wedding is an informal or casual wedding, the wording on your wedding invitations can be uniquely creative. You may include song lyrics, quotations, pictures or phrases that will tie into the theme or style of your wedding. Whatever you put on your invitation, be sure to include the following information:

1. The name of both bride and groom, including last names

2. The date, location, and time of the wedding

3. The location and time of the reception

4. RSVP information.

A formal wedding invitation is enclosed in two envelopes. The outside envelope has the guest's address and the return address. The inner envelope lists the invited guests from that household.

Included in the envelopes should be a reception card (unless that information is on the invitation) and an RSVP card with a self addressed and stamped envelope.

Some wedding invitations come with only an outer envelope, and some of the more modern ones are folded in such a way as to not require an envelope at all.
