    Hello!

    I was wondering if I could get some help w/ my invite. I need to know how to word the ending.

    We are having a cocktail hour then the dinner.

    Do I say: Cocktails/Dinner immediately following Ceremony

    or do I just say Cocktails immediately following Ceremony

      How about just "reception immediately following ceremony"?

          I think Cocktails and Dinner immediately following Ceremony or Reception immediately following ceremony. Just saying cocktails makes it like its just exactly that...cocktails. You dont want people to eat before your party because they think they are not going to be having a meal.

              I plan to put something like 'cocktails and dinner following ceremony' in mine- just to let everyone know what the plan is. I'm also including a mini wedding day timeline in my oot bags, because with our ceremony at 2, even though we are planning to have the cocktails right afterwards, there might be a little break, and I want all the guests to be on the same page with things!

                Thanks Guys!

                Now I have a dilemma w/ one of the sentences in our invite. I got it from this site..however, my fiance is saying it is not correct in the way it is worded..what do you think

                Invite You to Share the Sun, Sea and Memories of Our Wedding Day

                He states that when you break down the sentence, it reads like this:
                Invite you to share the sun of our wedding Day
                Invite you to share the sea of our wedding Day
                Invite you to share the memories of our wedding day

                I think he is looking way too much into this..what do you think??

                  How about just "reception to follow in (insert place*"

                    Hey,
                    I don't know if you have done your invites yet, but I would say "cocktails, dinner,and dancing following ceremony"
                    You want to include both cocktails and dinner so your guests know what to expect foodwise, but adding the extra word helps with the flow...unless there's no dancing, then you have a problem....

                    also, I like sun, sea & memories....no problems there!

                    good luck!
