Invite wording for guests invited only to the Stateside reception

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I am trying to send out Save The Dates for guests invited to my stateside reception at the same time I am sending out invitations to my Mexican wedding.

 

Does anyone have a wording they used?

 

I was thinking something along the lines of:

 

Amy

and

Mark

 

are having a small wedding ceremony in Mexico May 29 2010.

 

We would love you to join us as we return to Maryland and celebrate our marriage on

 

July 24 2010

Location Address

Time

 

Thoughts? Thanks!!!

I think that sounds good. I know that I would understand it and not think twice about it if I received that in the mail from a freind/relative! You could also just state it as 'Amy and Mark will be getting married in Mexico May 29, 2010. We would love for you to join us and celebrate our marriage at our reception in Maryland...' I guess thats basically already what you said.. haha.

THat is pretty much what I did for our AHR. That way your guests know where you were married and where to join you to celebrate in your hometown!

I do not think you actually need to identify where and when you were married. Once you have identified it as a wedding reception then the guest will already know you would have been married prior to the date

 

I am sure that most guest will have already been made aware that you are having in intimate destination wedding ceremony.

 

You are invited to the wedding reception of X&X , on XX date......

Ok great ladies - thanks! I am also sending out the Save the dates a year early, but I am sending them out at the same time as the invites to my wedding - that way no one feels like I left them out when they hear my invites have gone out. Hope that doesn't look too crazy!

This is also how we sent out our "announcements." On one side it stated that we were getting married, the date and location (no specifics, just the city,state). On the reverse side, it stated "please join us in celebration", date, time, location (specifics).

 

We hand delivered most of these and made sure to state that they were invited to the AHR. Even so, many of the guests were asking details about the wedding. I guess our the wording didn't give them the clue that they weren't invited to the wedding.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
