When I first started writing for this site, I did not even realize how many invitations there were to cordially invite people to a wedding.
The number of invitations I received in the first year, and I have received over 200,000 invitations in the past 10 years, is the highest I have ever received.
And I do not have a problem with cordially inviting people, I do have a big problem with invitations that say I am giving a gift to you, a gift that I can never receive.
The problem is not only in the text.
The problem is also in the presentation.
Cordially inviting someone to your wedding is a lot like inviting them to a corporate party.
The party will probably be packed with people who will be extremely drunk.
The invitations will be written with all caps.
And they will have all caps letters around them.
When the party is over, the party attendees will be very uncomfortable.
I do not understand why people think that it is okay to send a cordial invitation.
But if you want to send them a gift, and you want them to think that they are giving a birthday gift to someone they have never met before, you should be able to.
It is really that simple.
You can make the text and the presentation easy to read, and it is a ton easier to send to a cordally invited person than to a random stranger.
I do believe that the best way to communicate with someone about your wedding day is to be friendly and direct.
If you want a cordal invitation, and the text or the presentation are not friendly and clear, then there is no point sending it.
It will not work.
And if you do not want to spend the time and effort of creating an invitation for someone to send you a gift for a birthday party, then it is probably not going to work either.
Here are some examples of text that would work for a good cordially-invited wedding:A message from your wedding party: I love your wedding!
Thank you for inviting me to your special occasion!
A message that says: We are very excited to have you as our wedding guest!
We look forward to sharing your story with you soon.
A message from a friend: I think you should definitely send this to someone who you know will be excited to know that you and your family have a special guest for a special occasion.
A quick text from a relative or someone who knows your family: We want to thank you for being such a good friend.
I know you will be thrilled to have someone who cares about you for a few weeks!
A quick text to your closest friends: Congratulations on your engagement to someone special!
We look forward at seeing you at your wedding.
I hope you have a wonderful day and a happy and successful day at your big day!
The text and presentation that is the easiest to read are:Welcome to the bride and groom!
The invitation itself is: We love you and we hope you enjoy your wedding with us!
