I am co confused as what to do!
For our wedding it will just be the two of us. We are having a reception shortly after with friends and family.
My mother is insisting we send out save the dates since the reception is in July (July 9th to be exact). I sort of feel like it is too late to send out STDs..but i could be wrong.
Anyways--I'm struggling with wording. The reception will be an upscale Pig Roast (still casual though) and we are doing a short blessing ceremony at the start of the reception (we are having a civil ceremony in mexico..so want our marriage blessed as well)
I guess I just don't know how to word that on the STD.
Do i mention that there will be a ceremony?
This is what i got:
save the date!
John and Ashley
Stateside Wedding Reception of John and Ashley
We are having a private ceremony on the sandy beaches of the Riviera Maya.
We hope you can join us upon our return to celebrate our marriage.
Invitation to follow.
Do i get into anymore detail than that and mention a ceremony? like "Marriage Blessing & Stateside Wedding Reception" ????
Also--my mother and friends really want to throw me a shower...so we are registering and creating a wedding website. is that weird since it is just the 2 of us? i go back and forth on how i feel about it.
