    Hi all,
    I'm sending out one invitation for everyone to invite them to both the destination wedding and the AHR.
    I know most people will not be able to come to the destination wedding with us but I don't want anyone having hard feelings about not being invited.

    Has anyone used 1 invitation for both events? Can you please share the wording

              My solution to this problem was to create pocketfold invites. So I've got the main invite, and then inserts for the ceremony in St. Thomas, the AHR, and then an RSVP card that's got both events on it.

              I am still in the rough draft process of writing it out, but so far it's like this...
              will be married on
              Sunday the Sixth of June
              Two-thousand and ten
              St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands

              (Parents of the bride or hosts of AHR)
              invite you to share in the celebration of
              the marriage of their daughter
              June 18, 2010 at 7:00 P.M.
              Michael's Banquet House
              Latham, NY

              Then my ceremony insert:

              Ceremony - St. Thomas, USVI
              6/6/10 - Wedding Ceremony on the Beach - 8:00 A.M.

              Please feel free to join the bride and groom for a week in paradise. They will be on-island from June 3rd - June 10th. For more information on accommodations, travel information, and activities, please visit their website:

              And then my Reception insert:

              Reception - Latham, NY
              6/18/10 - Reception - 7:00 P.M.

              A reception given by the bride's parents will be held at Michael's Banquet House after the newlyweds return from their honeymoon. Please join us for a night of celebration with a formal dinner, drinks, and dancing.

              (address of AHR)

              Sooo... long post. But that's what I've got so far. I would love any input or suggestions, as it's a work in progress.

                  hi! I wouldn't put them both on one invite. This was also a suggestion from the woman who did my invites. They are two different events that need to seperate invitations. it gets really confusing and I think it is just too much for one invitation.. IMO.

                  Good Luck!

                    Dear Beloved Friends and Family,

                    Please join us in celebrating our big day at the Aventura Cove and Spa, in Riviera Maya, Mexico on Friday, February 18th, 2011. We have reserved a block of rooms and have negotiated a group rate. The resort has provided us with a special website where our guests can book their stay. You can find this link on the “book your trip” page located on our website, Wedding Website - Daniel Drew & Sara Kadow - Welcome. For those attending our Mexican Ceremony, all of the information you could ever want to know about us and our wedding is available for you on the website.

                    For those of you who will not be able to make it to our wedding in Mexico, we hope you can celebrate with us after our return. We will be hosting a lovely summer reception party back home in mid June, 2011. A formal invite will follow.

                    You may RSVP on our website at your convenience.

                    Thats the letter I attached with my Save the Date, Boarding Pass Magnets. I should have pictures tomorrow.

                      I used one invite for both the destination & AHR.

                      First we sent out STD (6 months in advance) mainly for mexico, but we also put the AHR date on there as well with our wedding website so people knew what we were planning.

                      We sent out the formal invitation 2 weeks ago (about 2 months in advance just because our AHR is 3 weeks after we get back).

                      I don't have the exact wording with me right now but it went something like this...

                      Together with their families...
                      Bride name
                      Groom name
                      invite you to share in their adventure of a lifetime
                      a seaside wedding ceremony

                      Please join us when we return for our Wedding Reception

                      On our RSVP reply card we gave them meal options and in small print at the bottom said something about this reply card was for the wedding reception only on so & so date

                      So far so good.

                      Any more questions don't hestitate to ask.
