It’s a little wordy.

I would try to cut back on what is on there. 

Take off the locations for the cocktail hour, and reception (people can follow the instuctions given at the event, and it makes no difference to their planning).

Cash bar available, is more then sufficient.  The hosts must always provide beverages for their guests.  To me, it’s like saying Dinner at 7:00, food to be provided.

Wedding attire is repetitive. You describe it as beach chic etc, and then give a list of what clothing items are appropriate.  In my mind, it is one or ther other.

waay too much info.  I would just give them the hotel info, say “cash bar” and the attire.  

 

YOU ARE HERE TO RELAX AND HAVE FUN!  seems unnecessary, and NOT RELAXING! 

ETA: I would call it the reception, not “reception hour”

This is way too much information. Most of it is unnecessary.

 

People will asusme the location doesn’t change if you don’t list a separate venue. It’s kind of a given.

 

The timeline is not necessary, especially the explanation about the bouquet toss.

 

Attire can be handled by putting “beach formal” on the bottom corner (either side) of the invitation.

 

There’s something awkward about demanding of your guests that they have fun and relax.

 

The only things really necessary on here are the information about the hotel rooms and the cash bar. Everyone knows you’ll have water and soda and all that. I’d also tone down the hotel information. I think underlining and capitalizing is a bit much. If your guests are goign to mis the deadline, the underline and caps aren’t going to stop them. It feels very much like a term paper submission guideline or something.

If your guests need to book hotel rooms by the 20th of August (2 months before your date), you should probably send that info out in another way.

Invitations should not go out until 6-8 weeks before your event.

@andielovesj:  Good catch! I agree. OP, you can send out a STD as soon as possible with the hotel info and an indication that a formal invitations is to follow and then send that max 8 weeks out as appropriate.
