I have a wording dilemma. We recently booked our resort and I'm working on DIY Boarding Pass invitations. We've decided to scrap STDs because we've told most people either verbally or via email and STDs would be a little redundant. Instead I'm just going to send invitations nice and early and then do a follow up reminder mailer in a few months.
The problem is I can't decide on wording! As background, this will be my second wedding and FI is not big on the typical wedding traditions, so we're paying for the whole thing ourselves, we aren't having a wedding party, neither of us are religious, we aren't doing bouquet/garter toss, and we're not doing a cake cutting, etc. The theme of the wedding is "stress-free" and we're keeping everything very relaxed and casual.
With that said, I obviously don't want the typical "Mr. & Mrs. F invite you to the marriage of their daughter yadda yadda yadda" (we're also both in our thirties and have been living together for 6 years, so I think it would be a little strange for my parents to be giving me away now, lol).
The draft STD just said "Pack a bag and save the date, Sarah and Rob are getting married!" and I'm wondering if that's too casual or tacky for the invitation. I was thinking of just changing it to "Pack a bag and get ready to celebrate" or "Pack a bag and meet us in paradise" or something to that effect.
Thoughts? Has anyone else gone with casual wording? I would love some input or examples of what others have done!
Also, am I the only psycho who is teaching herself photoshop for this endeavor? Haha
