FH and I want a small intimate wedding with family and close friends only. I am sending out my STD's along with the invites and reply card all in one and when we get back we will be having a AHR. My question is how do I invite people to the AHR only and not seem rude?? Should I send invites stating we are only having a small wedding but would like to see everyone when we get back to the "non-invited"? Does that seem cheap and cheesy??

In a intimate ceremony in the Riviera Maya
while surrounded by family and friends
Carla xxx & Chris xxx
will become husband and wife.
Upon our return we would love for you to celebrate this joyous occasion with us.
xxxx xxxx location info here xxxx xxxx
Then one of the inserts will be this:
| Dear Family and Friends, |
We have chosen the Riviera Maya for our destination wedding. The beautiful white sand beaches and lush rain forest make it the perfect location to start our lives together.
While we would love everyone to come, we understand that because of the distance and cost not everyone will be able to be with us in the Riviera Maya. So we will be holding a celebration in Michigan upon our return home.
The greatest gift you can give is to celebrate with us.

Send those you want to come to the wedding an invite now instead of an STD.
If you want to send AHR STDs you can do that for everyone on your list.
AHR invites go out to everyone 6-8 weeks before the AHR.
I like Nicole's wording about a private ceremony.
These can be as formal or informal as you want.
