17 New Wedding Reception Invitation Templates

A wedding ceremony is always a beautiful event. It is a new chapter in a couple’s life, marking the end of singlehood but also marking the beginning of a lifetime of love and commitment. The ceremony also provides the perfect setting not only for exchanging vows but for the families and friends of the groom and bride to meet and enjoy each other’s company.

The celebration almost always never ends in the ceremony alone, but with a reception where the mood is much more relaxed since food is being served, games are played, and dances are held. So if you’re planning to tie the knot, list down your invited guests and start making those invitations with our wedding reception templates. More wedding reception invitation templates are also available on our site.

Laurel leaves symbolize victory and honor. The couple-to-be have certainly endured countless trials before reaching their wedding day, and the wedding certainly evokes a sign of victory. Additionally, honor is seen in couples who have been tested within various situations and have stayed together despite any and all problems. In this invitation template in PSD, laurels are the main highlight and are spread across the invitation. The leaves provide an exquisite effect which is not too flashy—a perfect template if you’re inviting some high-profile guests.

Holding your wedding reception under the starry night sky is another great idea for the celebration. As long as the weather forecasts are clear, guests will certainly have a great time. Pair the beautiful ambiance with nice music (preferably RnB to set the mood) and lots of food (don’t forget the desserts). Night-time outdoor wedding receptions are not held often, as couples and guests alike usually don’t want to take their chances on the weather and also want to avoid safety issues especially in an open area with minimal to no security. This sample invitation template ideally represents the event, with stars sparkling in a blue night sky surrounded by a black border.
