Frequently asked questions

What should we include on traditional wedding invitations?

When crafting your wedding day invitation with Zola, all the information you need to include is provided for you in a template that is easy to customize. Traditional or classic wedding invitations should include the names of those getting married, the names of the wedding hosts (usually the bride and/or groom’s parents), when and where the wedding will be, the wedding’s formality or dress code, and how to RSVP for the big day. You may also choose to include information such as dress code and RSVP on a response card and details card sent along with the formal wedding invitation. Including these additional cards is a hallmark of traditional wedding invitations.
