How silly to spend all that money for a wedding when you can just go to Vegas and get married and have some fun then go back and put money on your home or car !

You have to state your name, your fiance’s name, where the ceremony will be held, the date and time, and where the reception will be held.

i have an invitations company and well i think believe that the content on your invitation depends on what you want on the invitation, but the things that are normally content are things like, venue, time, date, dresscode, and where a gift list is to be obtained, then you have stuffs like RSVP details and details relating to who to call should you need extra info bout the wedding, GOOD LUCK,

In mine I put a reception card to let people know when and where the reception is, hotel information with a map on the backside for our out-of-town guest, and the response card.

You will need the invitation itself, information about the reception (if held in another location), an RSVP card (postcard or if not then include envelope & stamp), and if there are a lot of out-of-towners then a map and directions are always nice.

Other optional items are tissue paper and an inner envelope.

At the beginning, how you word things is optional, it would be most usual to have something like -
Jane Lynn Doe,
daughter of John and Kathy Doe
and
Joe Fred Cool,
son of Henry and Laurie Cool
request the honour of your presence
as they exchange their wedding vows on
Saturday, the fourteenth of April
Two thousand and eight
at two o’clock in the afternoon
St. Francis Church
123 Main Street
Anytown

–the above is centered, then at the bottom, in the lower left corner, you put the reception information -
Cocktails 5:30 p.m.
Dinner 6:30 p.m.
Program and dance to follow
The Grand Ballroom
456 Apple St.
Anytown
