Of all the wedding stationery that you might use before, during, and after your nuptials, none is more important than the wedding invitation.
More than a formal announcement of your intention to wed, it is also the document that tells your guests the when and where of your matrimonial plans.
So what do you want your wedding invitations to say? For inspiration, why not look to the stars? Not the ones that reside in the heavens, mind you, but rather those that dwell in Hollywood. The sky is truly the limit when it comes to celebrity weddings.
Designer dresses, custom cakes, and gorgeous wedding invitations are par for the course when the rich and famous decide to tie the knot. So let’s take a look at some high profile nuptials and their wedding invitation wording options…
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

For their recent nuptials, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West went decidedly simple when composing their wedding invitation wording. The invitation addresses guests directly to request their presence at the wedding of these globally known celebrities.
Immediately following their names, Kardashian and West provide their wedding date, though they make a point of saying that the details of their nuptials will be given only when guests arrive. They also use their invitations as an opportunity to inform their invitees of a pre-wedding dinner the night before the big day.
Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson

Jessica Simpson is another major celebrity who tied the knot with her long-term love Eric Johnson this summer. Much like Kimye, Simpson and Johnson directly address their guests and request their company at their upcoming nuptials.
However, their invitations also mention their families, a touch that many blushing brides and grooms like to include in their wedding stationery as well.
Immediately following the formal invitation, Simpson and Johnson provide the pertinent details of their ceremony and reception, including date, time, location and dress code.
Tony Romo & Candice Crawford

We’re shifting our focus east—specifically to Dallas, Texas—where Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Tony Romo, wedded former beauty queen and reporter, Candice Crawford.
Romo and Crawford went the classic route for their wedding invitations by having their parents formally request the presence of their guests at the nuptials. Many couples choose to have only the bride’s parents included on their invitations, which may be protocol if they do indeed cover the expenses of the affair.
However, Romo and his now wife ultimately decided to have both sets of parents grace their wedding stationery.
Lily Allen & Sam Cooper

Allow us to depart for just a moment from all things traditional. While many couples love the simplicity and elegance of using formal or classic wedding invitation wording, some brides and grooms may want to take a more eclectic approach to their wedding stationery.
Enter Lily Allen and Sam Cooper. While technically a save-the-date card, it represents the whimsical nature that many betrothed couples want to infuse into their wedding invitations. So if you want to forego the ceremonial language that Kim and Kanye, Jessica and Eric, and Tony and Candice used for their wedding invitations, look no further than the Brits for some quirky inspiration.
Prince William & Kate Middleton

But hold on for just one more wedding invitation! The English might know how to do eccentric just right, but they also happen to be the creators of all things proper as well. And it doesn’t get any more proper than the Royal Family.
Note Queen Elizabeth’s initials at the top of the invitation, not to mention the line where Lord Chamberlain invites each lucky guest to the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Now most couples may not be able to precisely replicate the wording used for William and Kate’s wedding invitation, but that’s only because most people aren’t princes and future princesses.
All the same, for couples that love the idea of giving out simple yet formal wedding invitations, there’s no better example than Will and Kate.
