Oh, the things that you can (and should) say! If there’s a moment in your life to customize, this is it! Your invitations should reflect you and your wedding event.  Word your wedding invitations in whatever way you want as long as you provide certain essential information Keep in mind that invitations serve several purposes:

* Invite others and provide details such as date and time.

* Set the tone for the event: casual, formal, theme, etc.

* In some cases, invitations serve to identify hosts of event

* Collect RSVPs.
