    I know this thread is old...but I'm bumping it for anyone else who's having a hard time with invitation wording. I just searched for "invitation wording" and read every single thread that came up...and honestly, I think I'm going to go with EXACTLY what you have (of course I'll change it to our names, date and location...but still)

    THANKS!!!!!

      Sweet.. I know I stressed about the wording for quite some time.. then I moved onto whatever my next source of stress was. :)

        Oooh, I can't wait for that! LOL

        At times "stress" is an understatement!

        Seriously, thank you for sharing this, it's taken a HUGE weight off my shoulders :)

            I do need help with two more things.. On the main invite it says

            Angela xxxx and Matthew xxxx
            Invite you to share the sun, sea and memories of our wedding day

            Shouldn't it say "their"? The designer says it won't fit because it makes the line too long and says it's ok because of the casual wording.. what do you think?

            The RSVP is a postcard so that will help with postage.

            I have a Wedding Weekend insert that lists our welcome dinner plans and the wedding/reception plans.. There is a day (Saturday) in between the two. I want to say something about enjoying their vacation on this day but not sure how to word it.. currently it says

            Day of Leisure
            Saturday, October 27th
            Enjoy yourself next to the pool or under a palapa on the beach. Dresams Resort also has a spa that offers massages under the stars. The concierge will be able to help you make other recreationals plans should you choose to go into either Cabo San Lucas or Sand Jose Del Cabo.

            It sounds chunky instead of fun. We don't wont to tell people what to do.. they are on vacation after all but it does fill up the page. Any ideas?

            I didn't upload a picture of the best part!!! It comes in a light brown box with a leather band and large sand dollar around it. Here's a link to the designer's site:
            Eiffel Printing & Design - 5x7 Tiffany Blue Marsupial with cane paper and sand dollars.


            I totally agree, I LOVE..LOVE..LOVE THEM!
            Did you use them for anything else besides your invites? I wonder if I can have them made in my colors... Orange, Brown and Pink. Although the Marsupial looks stunning. Did the sand dollar ADD major weight to mail them out? If so I was thinking, would it be best to go with one of her printed monograms instead for the outer envelope?

              I'm so glad I found this thread...the invitations are beautiful and I was wondering about wording too! For some reason when I searched "invitation wording" there were no matches....
