Step 2: Drafting the invitation

Past designing the wedding invitation, log into your personal email account and open a new email message. While writing the recipient address make sure you put it in the BCC line. This will hide addresses from individual recipients. This will also help you protect the privacy of your guests as no one is going to see other’s email address in the footer. Give it an intimate subject line such as “Getting Married: Join us for Liora and Peter's Big Day!!". A perfect example of a subject line that describes the content of its body.

Kindly consider the attached card as my personal invitation.

Please uplift the aura of this wedding ceremony with your presence and blessings. Would appreciate if you can confirm your presence for the big day.

Looking forward to see you there.
