Common wedding invitation dimensions

North America

5 x 7 inches This is the most common invitation size.

5 ¼ x 5 ¼ inches — The square invitation is well-suited to more modern designs.

6 ½ x 8 ¾ inches — This is a slightly larger rectangle invitation.

4 x 9 ¼ inches This slim wedding invitation is also popular and can be oriented to print vertically or horizontally.


Beyond North America, invitations are usually sized based on the A series or as squares. When an invitation is in the A series paper sizes, choosing an envelope to match is easy because it corresponds directly to its A series counterpart.
