ok so most who have read my post about what i’m doing on my wedding day… who those who don’t
so i know what i’m going to write on the card thingy that i will send to everyone that won’t be at the party when we tell everyone that we got married that morning….For the invitation that i will have to send out to everyone so that they actually come that night i’m a bit stuck…. as i don’t really want to give anything away LOL but i’m sure everyone isn’t stupid as we annonced at out engagement party that we decided the date was going to be 10/10/10… so i’m sure most will think they are being invite to a wedding… even though the time will be 5pm LOL so what i have at the moment to put on the invitation is
Once upon a time
in a faraway land
a princess had all her
dreams come true
when a charming prince
asked for her hand in marriage.
Their fairytale begins with
and then i don’t know maybe putting Time, Date and place after that and nothing else…. oh signed by me and craig (just incase they have no idea who it’s from) BUT i don’t know…. i need helpo!!! I really like that little poem thing as it hints that it’s about the wedding but to me its already saying that we’ve already said our I do’s… but i’m thinking others won’t think that so then they won’t know that we already have…. AND i’m thinking i might wait until closer to the date to send family members (like mum ) the invite otherwise she will be asking whats happening LOL not that she already isn’t.

Personally I think that gives it away.. What about inviting your guests to a different type of party.. Maybe a early halloween party with a “fairytale theme” or something like that. You may even want to consider something like well even though the wedding isn’t happening we’re throwing a party. Please join us in celebrating the great things in life such as love, family, and friends. I honestly don’t know that either of these are suggestions you’re looking for but I do think the previous wording gives it away..

I dont really think you should keep it a suprise? unless your having it really small. I honestly think its polite to announce that you chose to have a private ceromony. But it would make a great party!!
I have been to a wedding were we got invited to their engagement party and they were very definite about the time of – no later.
We arrived and the girl wasnt there… They then announce that this was actually their wedding!! and would you all stand for the arrival of the bride!
It was absolutely awseome! So suprises are great! But yeah.. I would be shot if I did this for our wedding. So good luck it is definitely a tough one and I wish you all best with the wording!

Yeah well after all the drama that i had with my past 2 lots of plannings… the only people that will be there when we get married is my brother and my SO brother and my 2 step kids and the photographer 🙂
so yeah we’re having it REALLY small lol.
and there will only be like 20people coming to the party that night anyway… then i’ll be sending out annoucements to everyone that we are married (not including the people that were at the party but family that are overseas and wouldn’t be able to make it….. not that i would invite them because it’s not a wedding and just drinks and nibbles, so no point in them spending a few hundred for that lol)
