Please help… My daughter is marrying a wonderful young man. She is having a Catholic ceremony (no mass) in her chruch with a priest. Then there will be a Jewish ceremony with a Rabbi at the venue, prior to the reception. How do we word the invitation to include both ceremonies?

Good luck. I can’t think of a way to phrase it at all — and would be afraid that everyone but the bride’s family and closest friends would skip the first ceremony and just proceed to the venue for the second. It’s also really hard to think of a way to phrase it without one ceremony coming across as more important than the other.
Are they doing vows and rings at both ceremonies? I ask because I’m having an interfaith ceremony with co-officiants, and our Rabbi told us the rings were more important in the Jewish tradition than the vows, and the opposite was true in the Christian tradition so we’re having our priest preside over the vows and the Rabbi preside over the rings. If they are having a similar division of labor, you could use that to help with the phrasing: “Vow Ceremony at…. followed by Ring Exchange at….”?
