    Hi guys,

    Someone in the family is making my invitations, and I think we're going to do the whole "message in a bottle" thing since we're only sending out 14 invitations and I don't need to worry too much about shipping costs.

    My main insecurity is how to properly word things. For my wedding, we are staying at a small boutique hotel, and the manager isn't going to let anyone else stay at the hotel while we are there (we take up almost every room). The only hang-up is that I want people to pay for their rooms by the rsvp date, because otherwise my dad's credit card will get dinged for it all.

    I have talked to most my guests, and I don't think any of them will have a problem paying for the rooms that early, so my only concern is that I don't make the invitations sound rude. I'm going to paste in the text that I'm thinking of for the invitations, so please let me know what you think (and if there's anything I need to add). I didn't included price details but instead referred to the wedding website, which I think is the best route? I've changed the names and dates for the sake of privacy.

    Main invitation:

    Jack and Jill Smith

    would like you to join them to celebrate
    the marriage of their daughter
