Wedding Invitation Etiquette is TrickyWith most modern brides opting to play an active role in their wedding planning activities, up to and including actually managing all of the wedding details themselves, the role of the mother of the bride is getting hazier.

However, there are certain things that even the brightest of brides cannot navigate by herself, and clearly one of these things is wedding etiquette. Without question, possibly the trickiest wedding etiquette “rules” fall in the realm of wedding invitations, particularly the wedding invitation wording.

For example, what is the protocol regarding the wedding invitation wording? Will the bride’s parents be listed as hosts or the groom’s parents? Should you use middle names or titles on the invitation? What if the couple is sponsoring their own wedding? Does the wording change with where the wedding ceremony will be held? Do the rules change for winter weddings or summer weddings? What is the best way of requesting an R.S.V.P.? What lettering would be the best for a formal or informal invitation?

As you can see, it’s quite a hefty list and this is only the proverbial tip of the iceberg.  Luckily, help is available.  Martha Stewart has created a guide that will help you through these questions and more.  Click on the link to read Martha Stewart’s tips on wedding invitation etiquette.  Good luck!
