Does anyone have any examples for reception invitation wording for a 2nd reception at home? We had about 40 people in Jamaica, but now we are having around 200 for an evening hors d'oeuvres and cocktail reception with dancing... and I'm struggling a bit on how to word it since we are already married.

Thanks for anyone's help!

What about combining it with a marriage announcement ... something casual and say "come help us celebrate at our home on xyz date, etc.

For mine, I have something like "Meet the New Mr. & Mrs...Join Us for a Casual Reception at Our Home" etc. etc. etc.

Okay, I meant "BACK HOME," meaning our hometown...sorry!
Thanks for the advice, though...

We are going to say "help celebrate the wedding of" on our post-wedding reception invites.

I think there are some threads on this topic in the "General Wedding Info" area as well!

We are in the midst of planning our AHR right now! We sent out invitations that have a picture of seashells on the beach on the front and inside it says:

A perfect shell is a gift from the sea
as beautiful and unique
as our love is meant to be
Janelle and Shannon MacRae
were married on
February 12, 2008
in Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Please join us for a celebration
of their marriage
