Wording for - suggesting guests only come for a few days
Posted 23 January 2009 - 10:37 AM
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?

Come join us in celebration of our Wedding Days
June 3 through June 6, 2009
Do you guests know you will be staying beyond the Sunday?

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 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.
