Commitment Ceremony Invitation Wording

Choosing Commitment Ceremony Invitation That Reflects Your Promises


The wedding planning world is full of advice on how to word your wedding invitations. But for those looking for commitment ceremony invitation wording, there's just two small problems: the words "wedding" and "marriage". Of course, many of those planning gay weddings (whether or not they live in places where gay marriage is legal) have no problem using those words. But others want to find particular commitment ceremony invitation wording that reflects the events they're having and the promises they're making to one another. Here are some options: Parents hosting a formal affair

For the above options, customize the invitations to reflect divorced parents, single parent hosting, both sets of parents hosting, and step-parents hosting. You may also choose to replace "commitment ceremony" with a variety of terms, including wedding, marriage, matrimony, holy union, civil union, union ceremony, relationship blessing, celebration of commitment, partnership ceremony, or really any term that you feel represents your ceremony.
