  • A quick introduction like "we have the pleasure to let you know" or "we are so happy to invite you". You can personalize it, with the tone you like!
  • The time and place of the event are next. If your special event lasts 2 days, let your guests know later, when you let them know about sleeping accommodations.

Adapt your text to the type of ceremony you are hosting

You will also need to adapt your tone to the type of ceremony you have chosen to have. Are you going for a Civil partnership, a wedding at the town hall, or a religious wedding? The announcement will not be the same depending on the situation. If you are religious and your family is too, you can add psalms or verses to your announcement. If you're atheist and you've decided on a non-religious wedding, you may not want to add any religious quote, but might prefer a quote on weddings, or on love!

In any case, here are examples for your announcements, depending on the type of ceremony you will have.

Texts for a civil wedding
