Philadelphia Custom Wedding Invitations | Julia + Jay's Wedding InvitationChoosing the wording on your custom wedding invitations can be tricky. If you like the sound and structure of traditional wording, here’s my guide that includes every possible combination of hosts. If your invitation will be a little more personal, though, you have lots more options!

One thing that couples do is choose a quote, passage, or poem that means something to them. If you like this idea, here are a few of my favorites to inspire you!

“If you love… let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.”

-Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

“Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.”

-Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way than this:

where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

– Pablo Neruda, Sonnet XVII

“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

– When Harry Met Sally

Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no, it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand’ring bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.

– William Shakespeare, Sonnet 116 

and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
– e.e. cummings, [i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]
