Now that I have decided on a theme (Steampunk!) I have been thinking about a way to phrase the invites. I definitely want to keep with the theme of the wedding for them, and I was thinking about using this quote,
“Come at once if convenient — if inconvenient come all the same.”
The reasoning behind it? It’s a quote from a Sherlock Holmes book, The Adventure of the Creeping Man.
The fact that I’m going Steampunk makes this fit well. I just didn’t know if it seemed rude, or…??? I could put something at the bottom about an RSVP or whatever, I just wanted to have a cute little quote to kind of tell what the theme of the wedding was.

Honestly, I’d use that quote (and clearly attribute it so people get that it’s a quote!) for Save the Dates.
For invitations, you want the simplest, clearest wording possible or you’ll get even worse confusion that you get with something ordinary. (Trust me, you’ll understand when you get to that point how clueless people can be). But go all out with the steampunk theme when it comes to look!

I definitely meant Save the Dates….I’m losing my mind. All this terminology. It’s my first wedding and I’m not far into the planning, can you tell? Lol.
Thank you for the suggestion! :))

I think it’s very cool for Save the Dates (if you’re new to this, don’t be freaked out by the Bee abbreviation STDs). 🙂
I’m a huge Sherlock Holmes fan.

Well, I am clearly too old to have a clue what “Steampunk” is. I have no idea! Haha. I do agree with pps that you should do this on the Save-The-Date Cards and not the invitations, for the reasons they already noted and that, if you use it, you should enclose it in quotations like a pp suggested. Happy planning!
