Wording for - suggesting guests only come for a few days

Recommended Posts

The title probably doesn't make sense -

 

I wrote a post on my FI being concerned others would hijaock the entire time we are out there. (Lake Tahoe) Several of you mentioned that you had suggested your guests come Thursday through Sunday (I'm assuming a Saturday wedding) so as to make it abundantly clear that the new bride and groom would not be hanging out with the entire guest list while they are there for the whole week.

 

Did you do this in your STD's or something else?

 

Thanks

Maybe something on your STD like,

Come join us in celebration of our Wedding Days

June 3 through June 6, 2009

etc...

Do you guests know you will be staying beyond the Sunday?

I would word it like "Join us for a Wedding Weekend Celebration" July 16-19 or whatever.

 

You should include hotel info if you want everyone to stay where you are, or if there is a hotel next door or something where you prefer the guests to stay. If it is a smaller property it could sell out so you might want to go ahead and block the rooms and tell guests they need to book early.

 

It might help organize your guests (and yourselves) if you can have a few activities planned.

 

Thursday - guests arrive - casual cocktails at the hotel

Friday - Group activity (skiing, local tour, dinner, etc)

Saturday - Wedding

*Or switch Fri and Sat around*

Sunday - guests will depart - maybe do brunch for those that are leacing later.

I would keep it simple and in the STD pr newsletter, whatever your avenue of communicating, invite them to spend the weekend with you and FI for your wedding (ie Weekend Wedding Celebration) and give the basic logistics. Then follow-up with a few scheduled activities or suggested activities so they will have options

I don't know if people are booking themselves or using a travel agent, but we told our travel agent we wanted everyone gone by a certain day. If anyone was persisting on staying longer he was to tell us or offer time before the wedding.

 

I think the Weekend Wedding idea would work too. Also just talk up how excited you are to celebrate with everyone for the weekend and then have a private honeymoon to enjoy together.
