My name is Nicole Block of the Nic Studio. I do stationary and illustrations, and I specialize in custom wedding invitations and special event invitations. My website is thenicstudio.com and I'll be talking to you today about wedding invitations. When coming up with the phrasing or the text for your invitation. The first thing you have to do is figure out who is inviting. That means who's paying for the wedding. If you're paying for the wedding, you and your spouse, then you guys are the ones inviting. And it should say so on the invitation. If the bride's parents are paying for the wedding then they're the one inviting. And if every bodies paying then usually all of the parents names are included plus the couples or maybe its just the couple inviting and their families. After that it's just a matter of creativity or simplicity. You can have a good time with your wedding phrasing if you like just don't get to cheap. This one says "together with their families Stephanie and Cory request the pleasure of your company at their marriage". ok and this means that they were all chipping in for this wedding and they just decide to have the families instead of the parents name. This one over here is ah an invite geared towards people you love music. And it says here, "music is love, in search of a word" and the rest of it is the inviting. Ok so you can always do a phrase before you do the inviting and the information for your wedding. Well you can go with something like this. Won't you drop in please (see you get a drop and then theres rain. Im funny) and then it goes on with the couples names. And there are also a lot of options for what you can do with your response card. For this one it is say, "Dinner and dancing in the rain to fallow". And you can have a really good time with it. You can talk about dancing; you can talk about cock tales; you can just talk about having a great party. Know who is inviting your guest and know which way you want to go. Do you want to be formal or do you want to have more fun.
