    I am getting married in Jamaica and I have only verbally asked a few people to join us. For the reception....need to send out invites to everyone. What are some of you ladies doing? How do I acknowledge that we will have already gotten married but want them to attend our AHR? Your templates would be wonderful if you have any or suggestions on how you worded them.

    I have the template for the ticket type invitation but that seems more appropriate if I was inviting everyone to come to Jamaica (which I would if they could afford it).

      Here are some examples I have saved. Not sure what I'm going with yet, but most likely something that inlcudes FI's parents names just cause it will mostly be his family and his parents friends. I may also include hosted by "FI's Parents" even though we are paying for it.

      The second one would work if you got married and then sent the invitation.

        This is something that I am already stressed about too.... Eric does not want to use parents names (as his father is not a part of his life and I have "4 parents"). I also have to try to make sure my maiden name is in there somewhere as sooo many of my relatives might not recognize my current last name. (I was married before for 5 years, I am a widow)
        We will only be inviting people to the AHR.... I just don't have any idea where to start.... AAUUGGHHHH!!!

            That last one is really cute, Lorilou! And if you put it on cute tropical looking invite cards it will make it even more adorable.

              thanks. I think we are using the "join us in celebrating the marriage of our daughter..." b/c my parents are throwing the AHR for us. :)
