Customizing the Dreamiest White Wedding Invitations with the Experts at Bliss & Bone

With your upcoming wedding date fast approaching, there are plenty of boxes to check during the planning process. One of those key pieces is your stationery, including Save the Dates, formal invitations and more. And if you want a classic option, white wedding invitations are a beautiful style couples often gravitate toward. 

Some white wedding invites are a blank canvas that you can get as creative as possible with, while others are all about modern-minimalism. There are also pops of color that work particularly well with white wedding invitations. And of course, you can never go wrong with the always iconic black and white wedding invitations

What Are White Wedding Invitations?

By our definition, white wedding invitations are online or printed stationery that features a white piece of paper. We have several online templates that have white wedding invites as the focal point, and then feature anything from muted tones to bright pops of color in the background. 

As you will see later on, these white wedding invites are anything but boring. There are three-dimensional objects, shadows and more that set them apart from other white wedding invites. Plus, many of them feature colors that will coordinate with the rest of your decor and design selection.

And as with most wedding invitations, these should include the must-have details about your upcoming event. The hosts’ names, the couple’s names, date, time and venue. 

Wedding Themes That Go Well With White Wedding Invitations

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas wedding? Or do you envision an ultra-chic tropical fête? No matter your style, there is a wedding theme that will match your vision—and work well with your white wedding invitation design. Here are a few of the most popular wedding themes that can coordinate with white wedding invitation templates.

  • White wedding invitations for winter weddings: When you are planning your wedding in the wintertime, you have a goal of creating a dreamy, winter wonderland-style event. And what goes better with that than white wedding invitations that match the snow-dusted atmosphere around you? 
  • White wedding invitations for black tie wedding: Sophisticated, elegant and elevated, black tie weddings are the formal event of many brides’ and grooms’ dreams. If you love the look of tuxes and ball gowns, this is the perfect “theme” for you. The requested attire can often inform your wedding invitation style, so we consider it a theme on its own. 
  • White wedding invitations for classic weddings: Classic weddings are often characterized by a few elements: white flowers, white tents, and blue accents on white…sensing a theme here? Nothing goes with classic weddings quite like a crisp, clean white wedding invitation.
  • White wedding invitations for modern minimalist weddings: This theme was made for unique, dynamic couples who want a sleek look throughout their wedding. With an emphasis on simplicity and elegance, modern minimalist weddings often go hand in hand with a white wedding invitation. It’s most common to see these types of invites with black or neutral tones as well.
  • White wedding invitations for museum weddings: At a museum wedding, the art installations are a major (and seriously impressive) part of your decor. You can let the beauty of the space shine when you choose white wedding invitations that will complement practically any venue. 
  • White wedding invitations for garden weddings: Though somewhat surprising, we have found that colorful garden weddings can benefit from a beautiful white wedding invitation. Because there is so much going on with your wedding color palette already, keeping the wedding invitation design a bit simpler can create an impressive impact on your stationery. Plus, the same “rule” applies to tropical weddings. 
  • White wedding invitations for city weddings: Many weddings hosted in big cities are chic and sophisticated, which is why couples may be interested in white wedding invites. They go with everything, and will allow the backdrop of a city to come into focus. One celebrity wedding example is Kevin Love and Kate Bock. They asked all of their guests to wear black or white, and their white wedding invites reflected the sleek and sentimental festivities ahead.  
  • White wedding invitations for country club weddings: Country club weddings also welcome white wedding invites, since they are classic and elegant. White wedding invitations will coordinate with any venue, but there is something about crisp white wedding invitations contrasted by a bright green golf course or luxurious clubhouse setting. 
  • White wedding invitations for hotel weddings: Every hotel is unique, and there could be a pop of color or other key element that makes it stand out. No matter what, white wedding invites are complementary to a hotel setting. Plus, you can incorporate an accent color in the text or a wedding logo or monogram. You can even change the color to the background of your white wedding invites to connect to your venue. There is so much versatility with these types of invites, which is why so many couples choose them for their special day.

Your wedding is a magical day, no doubt, and you and your partner should find a theme that suits your personality and style. With these recommendations, we hope you can be more prepared to pick the best option for your special day. The best part is that white wedding invitations are super versatile, allowing couples to build their ideas off of them in a cohesive way.

How to Word Your White Wedding Invitations

Because white wedding invitations are typically associated with classic events, we are sharing a few etiquette suggestions for how to word your formal invites. Before you send out your invites, you likely chose to send out a Save the Date. These types of stationery share the two primary details: where and when your wedding is happening. From there, your white wedding invitation should provide even more detail and context. To get you started, these are the key pieces of information you’ll need to provide:

  1. The name of the people hosting your wedding: Let’s break things down: Who's paying for your event? Traditionally, the bride’s parents pay for, and in turn, host the wedding. If that’s the case for you, it’s common to start your white wedding invitation with the full names and titles of the bride’s parents. Alternative options for this section include “Together with their families” (if both families are contributing) or the full names and titles of the guests of honor (if the wedding couple is hosting the wedding, too). 
  2. What is being requested of each guest: This section is all about subtly referencing the type of wedding venue you’ve chosen for your wedding. If the hosts “request the honor of your presence,” that means the ceremony will be hosted in a place of worship. By contrast, you can write, “request the pleasure of your company” for all other venue types. 
  3. The name of the guests of honor: Hey, that’s you! Your and your partner’s names should be featured prominently on the white wedding invitations. You can go the formal route and share your first, middle and last names and titles, or you can simplify it with your first names only. 
  4. The date and time of the wedding: This is where it could get a little tricky. While some couples like the idea of padding event timing, it is best to share the exact start time of your event. Your guests should respect this, and will also appreciate not having to wait around for the ceremony to start. You should also write out the date and time, down to the numbers. For example, “Saturday, the eighteenth of November.” 
  5. The requested attire: Guests love having as much information about your upcoming event as possible—especially when it comes to how they should dress. There are the more traditional types of attire (think black tie or formal), but there are also more unique concepts. For example, you can ask your guests to dress in their best coastal chic attire. Just keep in mind that you may need to provide a mood board or be ready to answer lots of questions from guests planning their wedding-day outfits.
  6. How to RSVP: Guests also need clear instructions about how to reply “yes” or “no” to your wedding. There are several options, but the two most common are printed RSVP cards or RSVP wedding websites. The former is typically sent out with printed invites, and it should also come with a pre-stamped and pre-addressed envelope. This allows guests to quickly fill out their form, seal the envelope and drop it into the outgoing mailbox. For RSVP wedding websites, you’ll need to prepare a page on your website and include the URL somewhere on your printed or digital invite. 

These are the basic pieces of information your guests should know about, per wedding etiquette experts. After you have these on your white wedding invitation, you can get creative with the wording or design. 

Examples of Wording for White Wedding Invitations

Visualizing how your white wedding invitations should be written is incredibly helpful in the planning process. In this section, we’re sharing a few ideas to get you started. While some parts will feature etiquette-related guidelines, other elements are there to encourage couples to be themselves. 

White Wedding Invitation Wording Example #1:

the pleasure of your company

is requested to celebrate

the marriage of 

POPPY AND AIDEN

saturday, october seventh

two thousand twenty three

five o’clock in the evening

ace hotel, los angeles

COCKTAIL ATTIRE

This is a modern-meets-traditional format that many couples love. Because it’s hosted at a hotel, you can use “the pleasure of your company.’’ You will also notice that there are no hosts mentioned, implying that the guests of honor (Poppy and Aiden) are also the hosts. We also love how the date and time is written out, but the lower-case formatting gives it a more modern feel. 

White Wedding Invitation Wording Example #2:

Together with their families

Amelia Croften

and Patrick Braemore

invite you to celebrate their wedding

Saturday, the fourth of September 

two thousand twenty three

four in the afternoon

Lowndes Grove in Charleston, SC

Black tie optional

Here’s a wording example that shows how it can look if both families are hosting the wedding. It also covers the must-have details, including where and when exactly the event will take place. It also specifies the attire, providing guests with a helpful direction for their outfit choices. 

White Wedding Invitation Wording Example #3:

Mr. and Mrs. Jack Philip Edwards

request the honor of your presence

at the marriage of their daughter 

Jamison Maeve

to

Mr. David Brian Wallace

Saturday, the thirtieth of December

[two thousand twenty three]

at half after two o’clock

St. Patrick’s Cathedral

New York, New York

and afterward at the reception

Rainbow Room

30 Rockefeller Plaza

RSVP

This is the most formal wedding invitation sample, and it combines elements typically found in the most traditional wedding style. As you can see, the bride’s parents are hosting, the ceremony is hosted in a place of worship, and everything is written out. This also shows how you can specify the location of the reception, if it’s different from where the ceremony will take place. An invitation written in this way is usually printed on paper stationery, so the RSVP note will encourage guests to look for a RSVP card and envelope when they receive your invite in the mail. 

White Wedding Invitation Wording Example #4:

Celeste and Victor

Invite You to Celebrate their Marriage

Sunday, August 25, 2024

Hotel Ella, Austin, Texas

This is how to write your white wedding invitations if you are hosting your own wedding. You can also add prominence to your and your partner’s names by making it take up more of the card than the other details. Adding a combination of script and serif fonts will also add more style and individuality, like in the Celeste wedding invitation template.

White Wedding Invitation Wording Example #5:

B&C

Please Join Us in Celebrating

THE MARRIAGE OF

Blair & Charles

22 JUNE 2024 AT 3 PM

The Carlyle Hotel

New York, New York

BLACK TIE

Here’s a look at how you can also play with capitalization in your white wedding invites. It also shows you how to display a logo monogram at the very beginning of the card. With a focus on your unique design and first initials, you can add consistency by bringing the logo or monogram into your other stationery items. At the end, the “BLACK TIE” note will also signal to guests that they need to wear clothing that fits into that particular dress code. This type of clarity will be appreciated by all of your invited guests as they prepare their outfits. 

If you’re still stumped on how to write your white wedding invitations, you should talk to your stationer about your options. These talented professionals have worked with so many different clients, and they can help you find the best ideas and wording for you and your special event. 

Choosing Between Printed and Digital White Wedding Invitations

You have so many decisions to make in the leadup to your celebration, and that includes how you deliver your white wedding invitations. While many couples choose to stick to formal, printed invites, other modern couples are gravitating toward going digital with the majority of their stationery. 

So, what’s the best option for you and your partner? Below, we’re breaking down the main “pros” for each type of wedding stationery. Read on to learn more about why couples ultimately decide on a particular invite style. 

Why couples are interested in printed white wedding invitations:

  • They can serve as keepsakes. Your wedding goes by incredibly fast. That’s a sentiment shared by so many couples, which is why it’s important to collect keepsakes from your celebration. One of those keepsakes could be your white wedding invitations. Just make sure to order a few extra copies, and invest in a box that can hold all of your precious keepsakes. 
  • They are the most traditional, classic style of invitations. For centuries, wedding couples have sent out wedding invitations through the mail. If you want to follow what past generations have done, we recommend sticking with a printed invite format. It may also be easier for your guests to understand how to RSVP, since it is the more common route for weddings. 
  • They provide a tangible experience for guests. There’s just something about feeling a special piece of paper and reading about an upcoming celebration. Printed invites give guests a sensory experience that will get them even more excited about your one-of-a-kind day.

Why couples are interested in digital white wedding invitations: 

  • They are more cost-effective. Digital white wedding invitations keep everything online, and they deliver the news about your wedding via email. Because of this, you do not need to pay for physical stationery, which is a relatively small but significant part of your total wedding budget (about 2 percent). If you are concerned about your budget, this is one idea to help you cut costs. 
  • They are more eco-friendly. If you forego printed invites, you are also helping Mother Nature. Because they do not require paper, it’s a cost-effective and eco-friendly decision for couples. If you are interested in reducing your carbon footprint while wedding planning, digital invites are the way to go. 
  • They can easily connect to your wedding website. For extra efficiency, you can seamlessly connect your white wedding invitations to your wedding website. Guests will receive an email and then get directed to your invite and site. 

There isn’t a right or wrong choice to make when you’re deciding between printed and digital white wedding invitations. What matters the most is that you and your partner feel comfortable with the cost and impact of your choices. Discuss your style preferences, budget and other expectations for your stationery suite with your partner and then go from there. And if you need more advice, don’t hesitate to reach out to your stationer. These pros are well-equipped to help you build the stationery set of your dreams at a price you can comfortably afford. 

Planning Your Entire Wedding Stationery Suite 

Feel like you are ready to start customizing your own white wedding invitations? There are a few things you need to accomplish first. Here are a few items to check off your list as you prepare to design and send out your white wedding invitations.

Follow these important steps and you will be more than ready to kick off the wedding invitation building process:

  1. Discuss your budget. Get together with your partner and anyone else who has offered to help pay for your wedding, and have an honest conversation about costs. How much do you plan on spending for your wedding? And how much do you expect to pay for every vendor? 

  2. Hire a planner. If you are feeling a little lost or overwhelmed, there are wedding expert superheroes who can help. A planner will dip into your wedding budget, but these pros can truly make a positive impact on your decision-making. They can leverage their connections in the industry and simply use their years of experience to simplify your entire planning process.

  3. Confirm your guest list. Write down exactly which guests you want to attend your wedding. This might feel early in the process to do so, but you will need to have a solid idea before you explore venue options. All venues have a capacity for the number of people present, and you do not want to worry about exceeding it. 

  4. Research and tour venues. Head over to Google and start reviewing the many venue options available in your area or at a destination spot you really love. If possible, we highly recommend touring the venue, so you can get a good idea of what you can expect from an event held at every location. Along the way, take notes and remember how you and your partner feel as you walk through the venue. And if you find “the one,” make sure they have your date and meet your budget expectations. Then, submit your deposit and start imagining your dream day.

  5. Design your wedding website and Save the Dates. Before you can get started on your white wedding invitations, you should set up your wedding website and send out Save the Dates. Save the Dates should be sent about six to eight months before you wedding, and you can easily make them match your future invitations as well. With Bliss & Bone’s collections, you can choose templates for wedding websites and Save the Dates that work well with your dream white wedding invites. 

At this point in the process, you are ready to design your one-of-a-kind white wedding invitations. Wedding invitations are generally sent out six to eight weeks prior to your celebration. This way, you will give yourself plenty of time to receive RSVPs, finalize your guest list and plan out seating arrangements and table assignments for your reception. Think about your decor or other design elements that will go into your big day, and then explore your options before you start personalizing. 

Examples of White Wedding Invitations

Seeing a visual of what you can expect from white wedding invitations is important. From the black-tie-friendly black and white wedding invitations to more punchy pops of color, there are a variety of interpretations within this category. 

For more inspiration, here are some of our favorite examples and color palettes when it comes to white wedding invitations:

  • Black and white wedding invitations templates: You know how much we love a classic. Everyone loves the black and white wedding theme (including stars Kevin Love and Kate Bock) because it is the most timelessly elegant combination imaginable. There is something so simple and chic about black and white wedding invitations, and there are nearly countless to choose from at Bliss & Bone. The minimalist design of the Bradford black and white wedding invitations are ideal for a modern affair, and the Remy template is great for a tropical themed event with a touch of greenery.
  • Red and white wedding invitations templates: Maroon, burgundy, scarlet…there are so many reds to pair with your white wedding invites. At Bliss & Bone, you can customize the font color to design truly original red and white wedding invitations for your special day. Plus, the Jewel design is a perfect example of red and white wedding invitations with a deep red background and white font.
  • Blue and white wedding invitations templates: Navy and royal blue and white wedding invitations are among the most popular options out there. One example of this could be the Carmella printed wedding invitation, which has an off-white paper color and is paired with navy blue font and envelope. You can also experiment with different paper and font colors to completely customize these invitations. 
  • Green and white wedding invitations templates: We already mentioned how a bit of green can take your island-inspired wedding to the next level. For even more ideas in this category, the Imogen template features a modern potted plant leaf and a subtle tropical background design. It’s simple, original and even has an embossed look on the white piece of “paper” that will appear on guests’ screens when they open up your invitation via email.
  • Gold and white wedding invitations templates: For instant glam in your wedding invitations, look no further than metallics. We love how the background in the Celeste gold and white wedding invitations templates ties everything together. As an alternative to gold and white wedding templates, the Blair design is black and white with a champagne-colored ribbon wrapped around it.
  • Tropical white wedding invitations: Perhaps unexpected, tropical weddings also work well with white wedding invitations. Just take a look at the Remy template, which also comes with monstera leaves looming over the invitation. Alternatively, the Imogen design has more neutrals and a shadow overlay and background that fits this specific theme.
  • All white wedding invitations: Dreaming of a white wedding? If so, why not go all-out with white wedding invitations. While there are plenty of accent colors to work with, you can’t go wrong with a classic all-white design. The Mila wedding invitation, for instance, focuses on the blind debossing look, and only features a small amount of gray text. And if you want just a bit of color involved, the Sofia wedding invitation uses green as a subtle accent color. 

From more nautical-inspired blue and white wedding invitations to the classic B&W combo, we love any opportunity to show off classic designs for your stationery suite. In addition to color palettes, there are lots of unique three-dimensional objects you can add to really make your invites stand out. These options include flowers, leaves, rocks, butterflies and more. And for even more dimension and interest, consider choosing a template with a shadow overlay. Go with the pre-programmed option, or swap in a shadow that fits your aesthetic.

With our invitation builders that allow you to change practically everything featured in your design, no two white wedding invitations will ever be the same.

Cost of White Wedding Invitations

So, how much are these white wedding invites going to cost? To figure this out, we are looking at the averages in the wedding industry right now. A printed set with digital printing can run you up to $1,200 for a set of 100, according to Brides. As for digital wedding invitations, you can expect those to cost about $1 per invitation. 

At Bliss & Bone, digital white wedding invitations cost $1.20 each for one to nine recipients, or $0.90 each for 10 or more invites. And for printed wedding invites, prices start at $257.50 for 25 A7 (5 x 7 inches) one-ply cards. Another perk of printed invites? Our builder features real-time pricing information, so you know exactly how much certain options will cost you as you customize your invitations.

Prices also go up with added features, like a wedding logo or monogram. It is popular to incorporate one for consistency and added customization in your white wedding invites. If you are curious about pricing for wedding logos, costs range between $40 and $120. You and your partner should consider what type of wedding invitation (print or digital) and what other features you want before you decide on the best option for your budget. Overall, wedding stationery should make up about 2 percent of your total wedding budget. If you need an area to save, digital white wedding invitations are a popular and modern pick among wedding couples today. 

How to Address Your White Wedding Invitations to Specific Guests

Once you have the design for your white wedding invites figured out, you will also need to address them. Even if you are sending out digital white wedding invites, those require addressing the guest—or guests—who you’re inviting to your celebration. To eliminate the guesswork that might come up as you’re preparing your white wedding invitations, here are our recommendations for addressing specific guests, from large families to doctors and lawyers. 

  • Wedding guests with no plus-one: There are some wedding couples who do not want to issue plus-ones to all of their guests. Whether it is related to capacity at the venue or budget, it’s sometimes awkward to clarify that single guests do not get a plus-one. To navigate this, you should send them white wedding invitations that are only addressed to the individual. For example, “Mr. David Smith.”
  • Wedding guests with a plus-one: If you are open to inviting a guest with a plus-one, there are two ways to do this on your white wedding invitations. If you know the plus-one of your guest, like a partner of your friend or relative, you can address them directly. This would look like “Mr. David Smith and Ms. Rachel Jones.” If you are inviting your guest to bring any plus-one, but they’re not necessarily in a relationship, you can simply write, “Mr. David Smith and Guest.” 
  • Wedding guests with children: While it is becoming more and more popular to have an adults-only wedding, many wedding couples are still inviting families with children. If you are inviting a family with children under the age of 18, you have a couple of options. You can write each family member’s name with the full names and titles of the parents, followed by the first names of their children on the next line. So, it would appear as “Mr. and Mrs. David Smith” on the first line, and then “Sarah, John and Sam” on the second line. Another idea would be to keep it simple and say, “The Smith Family.” 
  • Wedding guests with advanced degrees or other titles: If you are inviting a doctor, lawyer, judge or anyone else with a distinguished title, make sure it’s written on your white wedding invites. Guests who have a title should always be written on your white wedding invites first. For example, “Dr. Jane and Mr. John Cooper.” 

Addressing your guests properly will reduce any confusion about who is invited to your wedding, and it will also allow you to show your respect for each individual coming to celebrate you. Your guests are making a lot of effort to join in on the festivities, so it’s important to recognize and address them appropriately.

What to Do After Receiving RSVPs for Your White Wedding Invitations

After you send out your white wedding invitations, you have to undergo a bit of a waiting game. As you are finalizing everything else related to your special day, you’ll want to keep monitoring your responses. There are three ways people often send out white wedding invitations and request RSVPs, including:

  • Printed white wedding invitation with RSVP cards: The most traditional style, these white wedding invitations should come with a few insert cards—and that includes the RSVP card. In it, you can ask guests for their replies and any additional comments for dietary restrictions or meal preferences. These are typically sent in the invitation suite, along with a pre-addressed and pre-stamped envelope. 
  • Printed white wedding invitation with online RSVP form: If you want a printed white wedding invitation but want to keep everything else digital, try this hybrid format. You can get the best of both worlds, while also accommodating your more tech-savvy guests. Just make sure to include details about how to RSVP on an insert card or somewhere on your white wedding invitation! Your RSVPs will get connected to your wedding website, and you can check your account for the number of “yes” and “no” responses.
  • Digital white wedding invitation with online RSVP form: The most modern variety of wedding invitations is the all digital route. Keep everything online and save big on paper (and with that, money) along the way. It’s also an eco-friendly option, since you won’t be purchasing paper products like invites and envelopes for your stationery. As with the previously mentioned option, you will review the guest responses in your wedding website account.

Whether you receive RSVPs in the mail or see the numbers on your account, it is important to collect them all about two to three weeks before the wedding. If guests haven’t met your deadline, you may need to reach out and confirm their attendance for your big day. From there, you will need to send your final guest count to all relevant vendors. These typically include your planner, venue coordinator, stationer and catering staff. 

It is crucial that you send the final numbers out to the vendors as early as possible, since they will need enough time to properly prepare for all of your guests. From the number of chairs for the ceremony to how many meals need to be served at the reception, a lot of this comes down to how many guests are coming to your wedding.

Matching Your White Wedding Invitations to the Rest of Your Stationery Suite

Your white wedding invitations are a key part of your stationery suite, but it is just one piece of it all. As you consider the potential designs for your white wedding invitations, you’ll also want to keep in mind that you’ll need to add the following to your stationery order:

  • Wedding website: There are wedding website templates that can match your white wedding invitations, even down to the font. In it, you’ll want to include other important dates and events to have on the calendar, photos of you and your partner, recommendations about lodging and activities in the area and more.
  • Save the Dates: These are the first formal contact you’ll have with your guests, and it’s possible to send these digitally or through the mail. For these ones, you want to send out the most important details: your and your partner’s names, the wedding date (or dates, if you are planning a full weekend or week of events) and the general location. You do not need to write out the exact venue name at this time; just the city and state will do.
  • Rehearsal dinner invites: Traditionally, the groom’s parents host the rehearsal dinner and send out the invitations. However, you can work with the rehearsal dinner hosts and express your wishes for continuity within your stationery suite. Just like your Save the Dates and white wedding invitations, you can send rehearsal dinner invites through the mail or via email.
  • Wedding menus: While some stationery items are available in printed or digital forms, the wedding menu is most commonly printed out and displayed on each guest’s table setting at the reception. These can include the various courses and even a custom logo or monogram (more on that later!).

At Bliss & Bone, we make it easy to curate a full stationery set, complete with all of the items listed above. When you shop by collection, you can review all sorts of stationery sets and determine the best one for you, your partner and your festivities. From sets that match your white wedding invitations to options with bold colors and designs, all of these options are only a few clicks away.

And for even more customization, you can also add a logo that matches the entire wedding design. Logos and monograms are special additions you can make that add to the overall effect of your celebration. They can incorporate your and your partner’s names or initials, your wedding date and even a custom drawing that showcases your flowers or another element you want to highlight. You can work with a Bliss & Bone designer to craft the best design for you, and two rounds of proofs come with every order.
