@CartersMum:  I think you need to make it clear that it is the celebration after the wedding day that they will be invited to.

E.g. something like: “Name and Name would like to invite you to a celebration of their marriage.”

Include location, date, dress code, timings, etc.

Somewhere in the invite mention that you are planning to get married abroad in October and would love to celebrate the recent nutpials with them in November.

The clearest way to do this is combine an announcement with the party invite, so (assuming that you and future spouse are hosting) something like:

“A and B are happy to announce their marriage 
Date 
Location

Please join them for a celebration 
Date 
Time 
Location”

You can also make it shorter:

“A and B invite you to a party in celebration of their recent marriage. 
Date 
Time 
Location”

If the time between events is short or the party is involved enough, and you need to send the invitations before your wedding occurs, you could change the wording to reflect that you will be married on date.

Hey!

We are thinking about having private ceremony in October (so that we can have a weddingmoon)  Don’t have a very big budget.

 

We are thinking of sending out wedding announcements and on it inviting people to a wedding celebration in late November.

We want to make it holiday themed, and very casual.  More like a Christmas party, but celebrating our marriage too!  We want it to be very laid back, drop in style.  Maybe say its drop in between certain times.  We will serve simple horderves and holiday treats, and some rum and egg nog etc.  We might have some chocolate kisses or candy canes with the date of our wedding on them as inexpensive favors for people that do drop in 🙂

We were also thinking of putting best wishes only or to donate to Christmas cheer 🙂

I like these two since they spell it out clearly.  I think just leaving it at “celebration of marriage” will confuse people.  I had people come to my celebration party (first marriage) expecting a wedding.  The invitation’s theme/feel will set the tone of the party (fun, casual, elegant, etc.)
