You can make your wedding as unique as you want, and you can go for a theme that is totally off the wall.

It doesn’t matter if you choose to have a traditional cake or cupcakes, wear an all-white dress, or if you want to get married in the dark there are some rules that are just meant to be followed.

The first chance that you have to make a good impression, and subsequently a bad one, is with your invitations.

Etiquette for wedding invitations hasn’t changed much over the years, and it is important that you follow it.

Every time you address an envelope or write a person’s name on an invitation it needs to be their full name, not an abbreviation, nickname, or middle initial.  Example:  John Doe Smith, not John D. or John D. Smith.

Always use the proper spelling when writing out invitations, the more formal your writing the more serious people take your invitation.

When writing down the address, date, time, and location make sure you are spelling out all the words.  This not only looks nice but it is also very helpful to those that are coming from out of town and aren’t familiar with the area.

This also includes the full address of the venue, usually GPS will only take you to a location if you have the correct zip code or city.

When inviting a family send one invitation to that household, and include the names of all the people you are inviting on that invitation.  If a family is split up (divorced, kid in college, etc.) send one invitation to each household, and likewise include only the names of those that live in the household that you want to invite.  This makes it easier to keep track of guests and who is going to be coming with whom.
