How do you word your invitations after STDs have been sent?

Recommended Posts

I sent my STDs out a few months ago, with the date, resort name and travel agent info for people to start booking.

I am ready to send out my invitations, but have no idea how to word them.

 

It seems redundant to write, We request the pleasure of your company, or similar invite type phrases, since we have technically already requested that on the STD, by offering booking information.

 

I am thinking of something along the lines of, We are excited you have chosen to celebrate with us....

However, there are people who have yet to RSVP. I have already informally asked those people if they plan on coming 1-2 weeks ago, and still no response...

I obviously need to use the same wording on all the invites, but don't know how long I am willing to wait for these people!

 

Thoughts on wording?

I was having the same dilemma and found two really good websites. I'm not a fan of traditional wording and obviously not a fan of traditional weddings. Here's my favs along with the websites:

 

Warm ocean waves will do the clapping,

as our vows we say.

The bright, blue sky will be our canopy,

on our wedding day.

 

Please join

Bride Name and Groom Name

 

as we begin our life journey together

I love this website for wording advice. Even gives you help if you are doing an AHR.

 

As we share our dreams with the deep blue sea

We hope you will share with us as we

Bride Name

and

Groom Name

exchange our wedding bands

in our dream location

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
