February 4, 2016

In years gone by the wording on your luxury wedding invitations was easy, there were rules and you almost always had to follow them. But not these days. But don’t get too worried, there are still strong guidelines on how to word your personalised wedding invites and evening wedding invitations. Plus if you don’t want to follow these rules it’s OK, your Great Aunt Agatha may look skywards for a second as she opens up her personalised wedding invitation, but she’ll still turn up and enjoy every minute of the big day making your wedding just as special.
