Ok Bees, in need of some wording help. We got our invites and I love them. I want to get them out as soon as possible. However, on a small slip of paper I want to inform our guests about our reception. We are having the typical church ceremony (me in the white gown, him the tux, etc). But our reception is a pig roast in a backyard. We are going to have lawn games, swimming, eating, dancing, etc. We want guests to know they can bring their bathing suits, a change of summer clothes so they can be comfortable, lawn chairs if they want them. how would you bee’s word this? We are tying to get word of mouth out there but want to have all bases covered.

I had a couple inserts in mine, reception details, nearby hotels, etc. So what I would do would be to have a card that said “reception details” and say just what you did here:
We’re having a night of dancing, swimming, lawn games and a pig roast! Please feel free to bring a swimsuit and a comfortable change of clothes. The reception will be held at the house of Jane Smith, 123 Main Street, Anywhere, OH 12345.

Please join us for a Backyard Barbeque Pool Party at Xpm/following the ceremony. Bring your suits and shorts and take a dip to cool off, or a sundress to dance the night away in!
