I have been searching and searching and can't seem to find what I want so I decided to come to the experts. This is what I am looking for, wording for our AHR invitation including this information.

 

Our names (Dave and Ashley or The Powers)

The fact that we already got married (perhaps including the location-Riviera Maya or the beach)

Idea that this is an "Open House" type event

Idea that it is a celebration (not a reception since it is not a sit down w/dancing)

 

Thanks for all of your help!

This is what I used for my AHR invites, but we are having a formal reception:

Together with their parents

Mr. and Mrs. Ralph xxxxxx

and

Mr. and Mrs. Paul xxxxxx

Anna Elizabeth xxxxxxx

and

Derek Paul xxxxxx

 

are happy to announce their marriage

that took place on

January tenth, two thousand and nine

on the beach in Ocho Rios, Jamaica

 

We invite you to share in the joy

of their marriage

Please join us in celebration

Saturday, the twenty-fifth of April

Two thousand and nine

 

What kind of food are you going to have, a full meal or just hor'duerves? I think that makes a difference on how you word it.

We have having a BBQ. So it could be a full meal. But we there will not be an eating time. We want the guest to know that they can come anytime during the time range. Stay for a while and then head out.

 

I would be okay with not have an AHR, but we have a large group who are not going to Mexico and want something here.

Maybe say something like:

Please join us in celebration

We are having an informal open house starting at 1:00.

 

I can't think of any clever ways to say it. You pretty much just have to write what it is. I think if it says open house, people will understand they can come anytime.

We're using something like this for an evening reception, with a buffet.
