Gay wedding invitations: two different wedding invitations

Wedding planning can be full of challenges, but it’s also brimming with excitement. One of the most enjoyable aspects is choosing your wedding stationery so you can start sharing your joy with others. With your main details confirmed, it’s time to create your gay wedding invitations and send them to your loved ones.

How to Structure Your Gay Wedding Invitations

Invites for a same-sex wedding aren’t all that different from any other wedding. Still, it’s not always easy to figure out which words to choose. Use these tips to put together your LGBTQ wedding invitations and don’t forget to use our wedding invitation wording tool to find the perfect words.

The Hosts

Traditionally, the first line on your wedding invites is where you name the hosts. In the past, this would be the bride’s parents — but that’s not necessarily trending these days. Tailor this line to inform guests about who’s hosting the wedding. Name the person(s) who’s hosting, or use a line like “together with their families” if it’s a joint effort. If the two of you are hosting on your own, continue to the request line.

Request Line

Next up is the request line where you invite guests to celebrate your big day. This section is often quite simple, which is perfect if you prefer a more minimalist look and feel. Popular choices for the request line include “request the honor of your presence at their wedding” or “invite you to join them for their wedding,” but you can phrase this in whichever way you prefer. If you skipped the “host” section, something sweet and simple like “please join us for the wedding of” is a popular choice.

Your Names

After the request line is where you and your beloved include your names. Whether you’re two brides, two grooms, or two non-binary wedding partners, it’s your names that people are excited to see here. Traditionally, a bride’s name would be listed first, but the choice is yours. List your full names for clarity, or use nicknames if that’s your preference.

Date and Time

Even if you’ve shared the date previously with save the date cards, confirm it again on your wedding invitations. Be clear with the date and time of your wedding ceremony. List the full date and take care to consider any confusion over date formats for any international guests. If it’s not clear whether your event takes place in the morning, afternoon, or evening, add an “a.m.” or “p.m.” — or an “o’clock” — to clarify.

Wedding Venue

Along with the date and time, your guests need to know where the big event is happening. Whether it’s a traditional wedding venue, your favorite beach, or your best friend’s backyard, it’s one of the most important details to get right. List the name of the place where you’ll tie the knot along with enough information to help your guests find it. Often, simply the venue name and city are enough — you can always share more details on your wedding website.

Reception Details

After your wedding venue location, it’s time to let your guests know what will happen afterward. You don’t have to go into too much detail here — just enough to signal to your guests what to expect. Many couples opt for something like “drinks and dancing to follow” or “wedding reception to follow.” If you’re planning something unusual, let your guests know here — for instance, if you’re planning to go paintballing, hit the waves, or set up tents for a weekend of camping in the great outdoors.

How to RSVP

You’re almost finished when it comes to wording your wedding invites. Now, your guests need to know how they can RSVP for your special day. Many couples prefer email or text as it’s the easiest format, but you could include an RSVP card alongside a physical wedding invitation card. If you’re using Greenvelope for your online invitations, your guests can RSVP in just a few clicks — and you can track RSVPs and provide updates all from one simple dashboard.

Other Details

The essentials are handled, but you likely want to include other important information on your wedding invitations. Examples of this include your dress code, how to find your wedding website, or anything that’s specific to your ceremony or reception. This is also where you’d mention if you want no children at your wedding, or if everyone’s welcome — including pets!
