Wedding invitations and invitations most often used to invite guests
Wedding invitations are very important for the successful organization of the wedding and can be divided into three categories:

- Invitation for the reception. A second type of participation for those unable to attend the church ceremony and still want to be an active part of the next reception.
- Invitation for the cake . In recent years, another tradition is also in vogue, which provides for the invitation to participate directly in the cutting of the cake.
- Name of the groom and bride.

Inside, however, the same rules on content always apply, with details on the addresses of the spouses and place of the church and / or restaurant.
