afrikaans-wording-for-wedding-invitations-jpg

Afrikaans couples often find it particularly difficult to find the appropriate wording for wedding material (such as wedding invitations, programmes and so on) in their mother tongue. While plenty of English material is available, it is not always easy or suitable to translate this directly into Afrikaans.

The first step in deciding on the wording for your wedding’s Order of Service pamphlet is to choose what wording style will best suit it (i.e. formal, informal, conversational or poetic). This should be in line with the overall theme, look and feel of your wedding. Then, make a list of all of the people that have made a significant contribution to your wedding and who will need to be introduced to the guests.

The following sample wording will prove to be helpful in deciding on the wording for your Afrikaans Order of Service:
