Wedding Invitations: Jessa Duggar, ‘Bachelor’ Couples and Etiquette Advice

Wedding Buzz

Wedding invitations have been hot and heavy in the news lately. The newly released photo of Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald’s nuptials invite has Crushable crowing that it looks like one of those wedding invitations created in Microsoft Paint. However, Hollywood Life calls the wedding invite gorgeous.

Those members of the 19 Kids & Counting family aren’t the only stars plopping wedding invitations online or mailing invitations to their upcoming wedding via snail mail. According to Buddy TV, Bachelor stars Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried are planning to send their wedding invitations out soon but don’t plan to air the nuptials on ABC.

While the most famous bachelor that everyone loves to hate — Juan Pablo Galavis — probably won’t see his name on wedding invitations next to Nikki Ferrell’s since the duo recently split, Buddy TV also reports that his birthday wishes to his former girlfriend sound like the Couples Therapy stars may not actually be kaput. If wedding invitations ever see the light of day for that duo, perhaps Juan Pablo should write “I love you” in Spanish and English all over the invites since those three words were a big point of contention in their rocky relationship.

Another famous TV couple whose wedding invitations may not see the light of day anytime soon are Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, as reported by the Inquistr, all because of the nervous tension that weddings bring to Kourtney, even when the invitations are for a friend’s big day.

It’s not just celebrities that are causing the topic of wedding invitations to hit Google News. According to Karen Hickman of the News-Sentinel, wedding invitations can contain practical information as well as standard fare that you’d normally find within invitations to any wedding. Inside the invitations, couples can include information cards with more details surrounding the wedding, such as hotel information for venues close to the wedding and other pertinent data not printed on the actual invitations.

Besides the wedding invitations, Hickman suggests placing important info inside the gift bags that can be left in the wedding guests’ rooms. It’s important to follow up with communications within the wedding invitations, because attendees may have discarded their “save the date” wedding cards.

Meanwhile, the Huffington Post reports that it’s also proper to give gifts for all those wedding invitations you may receive from folks you barely know.
