Let’s get real here. We cannot imagine our lives without messaging apps like WhatsApp. Whether you have created a bridesmaid’s group to virtually let your girls help you shop for the wedding, or your parents have added all family members in a group to keep them all posted about the wedding arrangements; WhatsApp has become the finest mode of communication and WhatsApp invitations are a rage. The year 2020 also witnessed the sudden growth of digitally dependent communication. When sending print invites were difficult or unsafe, Whatsapp invitations helped build a bridge and fill the social gaps that the lockdown had imposed on us. A WhatsApp marriage invitation, in today’s times, will bring one as much joy as a physical card will! Creating a WhatsApp marriage invitation message with all the important details will be a perfect way to let your friends and family stay informed about your wedding details.

Our mission here is to provide you with some sample WhatsApp marriage invitation ideas, which will help you break the news with much enthusiasm and without compromising on the important details.

If you wish to get more creative with your WhatsApp marriage invitation, you can ask your graphic designer to create a digital card to send along with the message as well. But if hiring a graphic designer is not on your agenda, then you can either attach a photo from your pre-wedding shoot or any photo of you two together with the WhatsApp marriage invitation.

Even if WhatsApp gives us the privilege of writing endless messages, without worrying about our smartphone balance, it is not a great idea to send extensive invitations that might be confusing to some. Keep the invitation message short and to the point, ensuring that all the important information gets delivered to the recipient.
