Ideas for Engagement Party Invitation Wording

themed invite message in a bottleEngagement party invitation wording sets the tone for your party. There are many traditional and modern invitation formats. Sometimes it is difficult to think of the right words to use, but learning about invitation wording and seeing examples can make party planning easier.

Traditional Wording

Traditional party invitation wording often uses formal phrases, the title of the hosts and the full name of the engaged couple.

An example of traditional invitation wording:

Dr. and Mrs. Clayton Baxter cordially invite you to a dinner party to celebrate the engagement of their daughter, Amanda Lynn, to David Allen Lynch on Saturday, April 6, at 5:00 pm at the Willow Tree Restaurant, 15 Wilson Avenue, Madison, Wisconsin (RSVP details follow)

Modern Wording

Modern party invitation wording is often semi-formal or casual. Friends of parents who throw an engagement party may opt for semi-formal phrases. A friend, who is a peer of the couple, may choose more casual wording, especially if the party in for other friends who are the same age as the couple.

An example of semi-formal invitation wording:

Mr. and Mrs. Philip Kelly invite you to an engagement party for Tara Williams and Scott Miller on Sunday, March 3, at 2:00 pm at the Kelly Home 4287 Lakeview, Ann Arbor, MI (RSVP details follow)

Casual Wording

A friend, who is a peer of the couple, may choose more casual wording, especially if the party in for other friends who are the same age as the couple.

Two examples of casual invitation wording include:

  • Billy and Carol are engaged! Come toast the couple with us on May 6 at 7:00 pm Rose's Tavern 1340 15th Street, New York, NY (RSVP details follow)
  • We're getting married! Join us for an engagement party celebration on Saturday, February 9 at the Brown's 325 Greenville, Los Angeles, CA (Regrets only details follow)

Proper ettiquette for an engagement party?

by Gothicspider

My aunt is throwing me and my fiance an engagement party in less than 3 months and she put on the invitations where our bridal registries are located, but we really did not want them on the invitations, if people wanted to give us something ok but we one would rather not have the party and my aunt would have given us the money spent on it which we need for the wedding, would it be ok to tell the people invited to disregard the registry?

Engagement parties  — Iowa State Daily
If it is a fancy venue, then it may be appropriate to have a black-tie event, but if it is a casual venue, it is not necessary to wear something so fancy as a ball-gown or a tuxedo.
