    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...

                This is what my wording is for my at home reception:

                We're getting ready to depart
                on a romantic trip which is only the start
                Bobbi Francis Johnson
                and
                Troy Maurice Nixon
                will be married on
                June 28, 2008
                Ocho Rios, Jamaica

                Please join us for a reception
                when we return

                hope this helps some....

                    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

                      Please join us for a celebration
                      of their marriage
