Recommended Posts

So I am having a hard time with my invitations because I only want to invite imediate family and a few extra people, but I feel I need to send something to other family member and friends that aren't invited!! I am strugling with how to word things to not affend anyone that is not invited I have read that you can sent announcements in place of invited before the wedding!! Then when we get our wedding photos sending a photo announcement also!! Has anyone else ran into this problem??huh.gif

I'm having a similar issue. Because I am a caterer and event planner, I have a lot of business contacts that need to be formally informed of our wedding, but I'm not inviting them to our ceremony.

 

We'll send announcements after the wedding that we were married. There is a great post somewhere about wording--use the advance search or browse through the invite sub-forum.

 

Unless you are hosting an At Home Reception, I would not send out an announcement for the wedding, just wait until you have pictures and send the photo announcement.

You can do it very similar to a regular invitations ... just place the "your presence is requested" line in a difference spot.

We used the Boarding Pass invitations and actually invited everyone to both. We have about 40 people coming.

 

But for the 'late adds' to out guest list (newer friends or never got correct address, etc) ... we are sending the same invitation, but w/o the travel agent/booking info -- since the deadline is passed anyway to book through our group rates.

We had the same problem. Our goal was to invite only those that we wanted there, while still announcing it to everyone else. We didn't just want announce it, but we also wanted them to know there would be something for them too - a way they could celebrate with us. So... rather then sending those people an invite to the wedding in Mexico, we sent a STD type annoucement to them regarding our reception back home in Minnesota. It said something like "Kelly and Ben will be married on Jan. 11th at a small, beach side ceremony in playa del carmen, Mexico. They look forward to celebrating with you when they return. Save the Date for the Minnesota Reception - May 17th.... blah blah blah. Hope that helps :)
