I once read that English is one of the most difficult languages to learn, mainly because we have words with numerous different meanings and spellings (there, they’re, their, anyone?). I’ve put together a list of the most common wedding word mistakes to help you as you write up invitations, save the dates, and thank you cards. I’ve skipped over the more common words such as then/than, where/were. sea/see, etc. and listed words mainly used for weddings.
Stationery – Note cards, invitations, etc.
Stationary – A way to describe yourself during a Netflix binge
Isle – The place you will be going on your honeymoon
Aisle – The walkway leading you towards your wedding officiant and groom
12am – The time that you will be in bed, counting down the hours until “I Do”
12pm – The time your ceremony starts
Fiancé – male
Fiancée – female
Altar – The decorated table/arch/etc. at the front of the ceremony
Alter – What you hire a seamstress to do to your wedding dress
Dessert – Yummy treats and cake
Desert – The area you probably shouldn’t visit in the middle of the summer
Can you think of any other words to add to the list?
