My daughter has her wedding invitation template done. We just have one question about the wording. The wedding will take place outdoors in a grassy field by a pond at the home of the groom’s grandparents. The Huge white tent is just also located in the same area. Her current wording just says “at the residence of …” Though everyone invited should know it is outdoors, does anyone have any suggestions for conveying this more apparent in the invitation?

You could say ceremony is located in the garden of the Groom’s grandparents followed by a garden reception. I figure if you say garden then people will get that it is outside. I would also spread the word to the guests that it is an outdoor wedding and to plan their clothing accordingly.

- Wedding: June 2010 - Tannery Pond at the Darrow School
We just wrote the name and address of our venue on the invitation but spread the grass-thing/appropriate shoe-wear through word of mouth and on our website…I like saying “…in the garden of…” tho…

Thanks for the advice. It really is a large grassy field by a pond surrounded by corn fields so the “garden” won’t really work. 🙂 I suggested putting something about “Bring your sweaters, and leave the heels behind” I’m sure she’ll make it work. Thanks again!

Does your daughter have a wedding website? We’ve found that it’s really helpful for details like what to wear, where to stay, things to do, etc. In our Save the Date envelopes, we tucked a note that says…”Follow our wedding journey on The Knot” and provided the website. Our guests have really been excited to peek behind the curtain of our wedding planning. Many sites offer free websites and you don’t even need to know HTML!
Our wedding is in a backyard, by a pond with a reception tent is same backyard. Great minds think alike!
