So, the STD's have been sent and I have already booked everyone's $100.00 room deposits. So basically I already know who's coming for sure. Aren't you supposed to send invitations only to the guests that are attending for sure? If so how do you word it? I don't need to know if they are coming or not (I already know they are) but want them to have a nice formal invitation. Anyone know what I mean? LOLsmile78.gif

I would still send invites to the people who cant attend. These are people you would like to go but for whatever reason can not go, right? My sending them a formal invite they still feel included. and word them how you would any other invite IMHO. Or if you are trying to save a little money then do a response on a wedding website? Why do you want them to have a keepsake? Is it family who would want to keep it? No offense but I have never once kept an invitation, except my own.

You can still do a formal invite that is more of an announcement. A single page deal instead of a whole packet of info with RSVP and accomodation cards.

 

Because I am having an AHR a month after our wedding, my invites announce our marriage, but are geared more towards letting everyone know about the reception. I got postcard RSVPs to include.

Keepsake? Umm, no I just want to send message in a bottle invitations (they are actually really cool and are glass and come in a box and have the invite on a scroll inside along with sand and shells) and they're only going to the people who have booked their room and close family whom CAN'T attend. I am the bride that had everyone and their mother trying to invite themselves and the invites are not going out to ANYONE else for that reason. I just need help with wording since I already know who's coming. :)

Gotcha, I misunderstood sorry.

As far as wording... how about something just with the details and since your close family and friends we are glad you are joining us? Something kind of like this :

Because you have shared in our lives
by your friendship and love
you are invited to share
with our daughter, Jennifer Cathryn
and Jason Fredrick Capp
when they exchange marriage vows
and begin their new life together
on Saturday, the fourth of August
two thousand and nine
at four o'clock
St. Lukes Church


I like the first few lines of that one...

Im sending invites to everyone but just not sending RSVPs with them. but you could get away with not sending them out. The only reason why i sent them out to everyone is because my mom is throwing me a bridal shower and a lot of people that can't attend the wedding are attending that.

 

MIB invites are so cool. my fsil did them, and it was so fun getting it in the mail. i loved pulling out the scroll and opening it up. best invite i ever got!

 

Maybe you can thank them for joining you or traveling so far. I'm so bad with words. Sorry.
