For those of you that are doing a destination wedding and a reception back at "home" how are you wording your reception invites?


FH and I are doing a small (i.e. immediate family and two best friends each) destination wedding with a big reception after we get back from our honeymoon. It's invite time and I'm kinda stuck on how to word the reception invite so that people understand that A. we already got married, so it's not a wedding invite and B. its our wedding reception.


another thought also popped into my head, because we have a lot of out of town guests for the reception, we want to give them enough time to plan for travelling for the reception. Is there a good way to word the reception invite so that it's understood that we WILL be married by the time of the reception but we're not married yet?


(some of the invites I've seen that are along the vein of what we're doing state "we've eloped, come to our party", at the time the invites will be sent out we wont' have eloped yet)

If you do a search for invitation wording or AHR (At home reception) you'll find tons of info on this.


My invites say we will be married, date, Jamaica

Please join us in celebration upon our return, date, time, location...


We will have RSVP postcards and a card to direct people to our website to view photos, accommodations, etc.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
