    I think its OK to leave out your madien or lasts names since its a little more casual.  Most people will know who you are without your last names included.  Mine was very simple.  The RSVP card had our last name, so in case someone was confused--that should have cleared it up!  Good luck!



    I'm currently trying to get ours done this week. Any comments?

     

    Words were spoken,

    Amidst a soothing tide,

    As paradise proclaimed,

    Two souls forever side by side.

     

    Bride & Groom

    Were Married on Date

     

     

     

    please join our celebration luncheon.

     

    Do you think it's okay to use my maiden name since I haven't changed anything yet?

        Perhaps there is different etiquette in the UK where this bride is from?? Who's to say what etiquette is anymore???????!!!!!!  There aren't any hard rules anymore. You also don't know who her guests are. Maybe it's totally fine to them. Maybe you should find out more info before making a judgement call like this. Just sayin

          I think they are all great. I laughed out loud on the money one and if it works for them how great. I would love people to give money only! lol... we are doing a post Cabo reception and i was wondering if and how people would know where we were registered if we didnt say it..ya know? We dont have a wedding website so im kind of lost. I like all the catchy rythems/poems...i would think most of these are for fun laid back POST reception. There should be no stress... We are calling it a Post Cabo Picture Showing, or something like that... we will have all our wedding pics playing on a slide show from the projector... i think everyone will feel involved and included that way ;)

           

          We will see...

                    Natalie - I loved your wording so much that I stole it!!  Thanks for sharing. 

                     

                    Here are the ones we are thinking of.  Anyone have some good ideas on how to word it that its a black and white affair and all guests must wear black or white?  Do I need to be so blunt?  I think many will not know what it means or may not pay attention unless we spell it out for them.  We plan on inserting a small card with that info along with what time the ship boards, departs, map etc.  Also, can you guys chime in on the "Hosted by" line ?  His parents are paying for the reception but they would like my parents names on there.  Does it look weird with so many names...so many different names?

                     

                    Thoughts??

                    I think the invite looks great! Minus one minor error- the reception has a date of 2011- don't you mean 2012? :)
