What do you need to include on your wedding invites?

Deciding what to include on your wedding invitations can be a tricky one. There’s lots of information to get across to your guests before your big day, but how do you word it and how much is too much?

Some couples give lots of information, including nearby hotels, dress codes, gift information and even ask for song requests. On the other hand, some give the bare minimum, and leave the rest as a surprise!

There really is no right or wrong way, it’s all about what you prefer.
