Inspirational Invites


A wedding invitation is an extension of an engaged couple, usually reflecting their personalities with a combination of color, images, and fancy text. This is your chance to not only show your creative side, but to also touch guests with the thought of your momentous union. For this reason, it is not uncommon for couples to choose inspirational invitations to send to guests.

You've seen them before – inspirational invitations that move you to tears – that touch the soul and make you fall in love all over again. They could offer a simple poem in the inside or endearing images of angels, hearts, and roses. Amongst the witty, humorous, and bold ways to announce a wedding, inspirational invitations can actually move you to give your sweetie a kiss on the cheek after opening.

Before You Get Started

When you are interested in sending an inspirational invitation to guests in regards to your special day, ask yourself whether or not you wish to include something that has already been written or something completely original. Many couples opt for something familiar, choosing to incorporate Bible verses or lines of poetry. How does a little Shakespeare sound? Romeo and Juliet certainly has enough lines to borrow.

On the other hand, inspirational invitations don’t have to bear the words of a great poet, author, or the Good Book. Creating your own unforgettable message is a great way to express to the world your true feelings as an engaged man, women, or couple. You don’t even have to be a great writer to share with the world how you feel about the love of your life. However, if you'd like a splash of poetic professionalism in your inspirational invitations, you could always seek the assistance of a writer or wedding service. Tell them how you feel and they will most likely convey those emotions within a few words for your invitations.

Consider ordering inspirational invitations when you'd like to leave a lasting impression. To get you started, I have listed a few excerpts from the Bible for you to consider:

• "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." Mark 10:6-9 6

• "Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for love, it would be utterly scorned." Song of Solomon 8:6-7

• “Love never fails….And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love” 1 Corinthians 13:13

• “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” 1 Corinthians 13:6-8
