    I think vows of love definitely has a better ring to it.

    You could also use “Invite you to join them”?? since you said that it’s quite laid back/not so formal..

    Sounds good to me – I wouldn’t think it’s just a reception. IMO “vows of love” is kinda over the top. I’d keep it as-is!

    Vows of love seems a bit strange….I like it as is.  The only thing I might change is say “invite you to celebrate with them” instead of just celebrate.  

    I get what you mean about not being “request your presence” kind of people…we weren’t either!

    honestly, I would eliminate “vows” at all. It’s redundant. Of course you’re going to be exchanging vows since you’re becoming husband and wife! (Everyone knows that’s what happens at a wedding!) I would leave it at “…invite you to celebrate as they become husband and wife” or something like that.

    @sofialovesmikey:  I think it sounds PERFECT! Not too formal, not “BYO keg and wear jean cut offs”
