What goes inside a wedding invitation?

An invitation can have several pieces: the outer envelope, an unsealed inner envelope, the invitation, a reception card (if the party is held at a different venue than the ceremony) and a response card with a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Printed maps and information on hotels is often also enclosed.

Furthermore, how do I write a wedding invitation? To write a wedding invitation, start by writing the full names of the hosts, such as the bride's parents or the couple, at the top of the invitation. On the next line, write “Request the honor of your presence,” for a religious ceremony or “Invite you to celebrate with them” for a less formal event.

Regarding this, how do you indicate adults only on a wedding invitation?

While it may seem smart to write “adults only” or “no kids” or “adult reception” directly on your wedding invitation, it's actually an etiquette faux-pas. Instead, address your invite's envelope with the exact names of those who are invited to your wedding (obviously excluding the little ones).

What time should you put on wedding invitations?

Traditionally, invitations go out six to eight weeks before the wedding—that gives guests plenty of time to clear their schedules and make travel arrangements if they don't live in town. If it's a destination wedding, give guests more time and send them out three months ahead of time.
