    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:


    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

    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.
