A Guide for Evening Wedding Invitations

They say the devil is in the details, and this is especially true for evening wedding invitations. Deciding who to invite to the full day’s events and who to invite for the evening only can be challenging. Balancing the guest list without offending anyone, while staying within budget, isn’t easy. To help, we’ve put together this quick ‘how to’ guide for navigating wedding invitation wording.

Include Key Information

Food Details

Inform your evening guests about the food arrangements. This prevents guests from leaving early in search of food or having tables of untouched snacks. A simple note like, “Guests can expect late-night snacks/evening buffet around 10 pm,” will suffice.

Dress Code

Mention any dress code to ensure your guests are appropriately attired. Clear guidance helps guests feel comfortable and confident.

Timing and Coordination

Send Invitations Simultaneously

Send all invitations—whether for the full day, full weekend, or evening only—at the same time. This avoids confusion and ensures all guests feel included.

RSVP Details

Include an RSVP card or details on how to RSVP online. Clear instructions make it easier for guests to respond, helping you finalise your guest list efficiently.

By following these tips, you can create thoughtful and clear evening wedding invitations that ensure your special day is enjoyable for all your guests.
