    I'm in the process of writing the content for our passport invitation, and we will have a pre-wedding welcome dinner the night before the wedding date. We haven't decided on the exact time yet, and the details on how to get there - will be updated in our wedding website closer to the date


    Did you also put in the dress code? I think it will be casual, but if guests want to dress up, it will be totally fine, because the place looks super romantic with relaxing atmosphere. 


    Also, did you have a section in your RSVP for the Welcome Dinner, or it will be implied that they will go to both (I wish all of them can go to both)?

          Thanks Houstonnlh, you are too kind. 


          I love your RSVP Card. I think I will copy them mostly. We only have one pre-wedding event to put in the invitation. Another two will be by email (as suggestion if they are free, they can join with us).
