Wedding Anniversary Invitation Wording

Wedding anniversary celebrations provide a chance for the happy couple to reflect on their lives together while spending time with family and friends. Celebrations can be small and informal events or they can be large parties on par with a traditional wedding reception.

Creating Your Invitations

An invitation should include:

  • The purpose of the event
  • Who is hosting the event
  • A description of what to expect: cocktail party, formal dinner, backyard barbeque, etc.
  • The time and place
  • An RSVP request, if applicable
