Though weddings are more untraditional this day and age, there are a few invitation don’ts that you don’t want to find yourself committing!
•Adding registry or gift information – It’s impolite to put your registry or gift information on your invitations, rather inform parents and attendants who guests can ask or put this information on your wedding website. This rule goes for adding “No Gifts,” on the invitation as well
•“No Children” – It is in poor taste to include “no children” or “Adults only” on an invitation. A way to let families know it is adults only is by addressing the envelope to only the guests invited to the wedding. Another option is to put on the rsvp card how many spaces you have reserved for the guests, so as to reinforce the names you listed on the envelope.
•Dictating Dress – It is incorrect to put “Black Tie” or “White Tie” on the invitation to the ceremony. If this is an important detail you want to reiterate to your guests, put this information on an enclosure card along with the ceremony and reception addresses, accommodations and directions.
