We are only having our immediate family at our wedding in Mexico. However, it looks as if we will be having an ahr (and probably a fairly big one) We want to send STD's for the AHR because our friends and family are scattered all over the country so no matter where we have it there will be many people travelling. To give people enough notice, we should send the STD before the wedding (we haven't picked a date for the ahr but are shooting for about 3-4 months after the wedding...I know I need to get on that smile35.gif)

My question is...how do I word such a thing? I don't want to confuse people or make them feel bad for not being invited to the actual wedding. So how do I say we are getting married on day x, but come celebrate with us later on day y?

Maybe you could send out an announcement of your wedding in Mexico with your AHR reception date rather than a STD? You could send that out right when you get back or right before you leave. Then send out a formal invitation for the AHR closer to the date or just put all the details for the AHR in the announcement/invitation and not send anything else.

You could write something like this:

 

You are invited to attend

a Reception celebrating their marriage

on Day

at Time

Location

Address

City_State

This is what I originally wanted to do, but how much notice do I need to give people who need to travel? is 3 months enough time? I thought an STD would be helpful for travel planning.

I never heard of verseit, but I just looked and it's great: VerseIt.com
I got mine from Personalized wedding invitations by Rexcraft. It's an invitation website (where I ordered mine) and they have lots of examples of wording.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
