Our timeline for the wedding is this:
- Thursday Evening – Rehearsal and a casual rehearsal dinner
- Friday – Wedding & Reception – Night
- Saturday – Out of Town / Family BBQ
- Sunday – Fly out for Honeymoon
Because some important OOT guests will see so little of us and are also flying in or traveling from afar, we decided to leave on Sunday for our honeymoon and host at our home an “OOT and Family BBQ” the day after our wedding. I’m having my bridal party arrange a lot of this (two of the girls are my neighbors on the same street) along with help from both his and my mothers as far as food and prep work.
The question is about invitations. I’d like to invite those people in the actual wedding invitations to the BBQ also. I’m afraid that some will make the assumption that we are leavign right away for the trip so they will not plan to be there for a second night. I don’t want to post it on the wedding website because its not going to be open to everyone.
Is it a bad idea to slide an additional, smaller envelope and notecard into the wedding invites when they go out to invite people to this separate next day event? Or is there another, better way to do this?
