Need help w/ casual reception invitation wording
Posted 19 February 2007 - 12:30 PM
How should I word the invitations for this? I want it to be casual and fun.

please join us in celebration of our marriage for a fiesta....date, time, etc.
I don't know that sounds weird, let me think about it. I know Tammy had an AHR maybe she can help better than I can.

this is what i am thinking:
How lucky to marry not only the love of one's life, but one's best friend
At sunset on
October 13, 2007
will be married in
Cabo San Lucas MX
You're invited to the
local celebration to help send off
Bride and Groom
on date & location
It's still awkward but something like that - any suggestions?

I don't know how to send everything out:
some people are invited to the wedding in Mexico, but not all. We are also having a big reception when we get back. So how the heck do I send out invitations for all of it? I really don't want to mess with a ton of different mailings (i.e. STD for wedding, reception, invitation to wedding, reception, etc).
Of course, the STDs for the wedding are already out.
The current plan is to have those pocket invitation things where they'll have a choice to rsvp to the reception and wedding if they're invited to both, or just the reception. Then the wording does get tricky.

We're getting ready to depart
on a romantic trip which is only the start
will be married on
Please join us for a reception
when we return
Date and time of reception
were united in marriage
on the twenty-sixth of February
two thousand and seven
om the island of St. John
Please join them as they
celebrate their vows
I came across less formal wording that started with "We took the plunge..." and invites your guest to come celebrate, but I can not find it at this time. If and when I do, I will post it!

Here's my start:
Mr. and Mrs. James Michalsen
Mr. and Mrs. Jeffrey Kowalewski
Request the honour of your presence at a Reception to celebrate the marriage of their daughter,
Mr. Kevin Michael Lindell,
Son of Mr. and Mrs. Larry Lindell.
The reception will be held at
Hawkâ€™s View Banquet Hall, 2217 Forest Hills Road, Machesney Park, Illinois
Saturday, the Fourth of August, Two-Thousand Seven at 6:00 p.m.
I also like the wording from the above post about "We're getting ready to depart", but then I need to work on the rest of the wording so I can get our parents' names there- then I WOULD put the date and place of the actual wedding.
I know these thoughts are jumbled- I'm going on not much sleep since I'm babysitting my 7 week-old niece all weekend!!!
Thanks for any help you can give!

We just put
"It is with love and joy that we invite you to join us in a reception to celebrate our marriage"
and then the time/date details follow.
Those invitations are very similar but different wording than the wedding ones. For the wedding ones, we worded it appropriately, but then in one of the pocketfolds, put a little card that had directions to the AHR with a date and time. The RSVPs for the wedding had spots for both wedding and reception. Then some people only got the reception one, which was the first one I discussed.
Does this straighten anything out?
