Edited – because I apparently can’t read.

Maybe a simple enclosure:
“Because we are looking forward to a beautiful sunshine filled day to start our lives, we have reserved a rain date of _____.  If the weather doesn’t cooperate with our sunshine plans, we will let you know by (phone/email/other method?)”

@Mrshotwing:  I think it’s fine to include an enclosure in the invitation about the rain date. Can you share your invitation wording? I think the tone should be similarly formal or casual…

@abbie017:  I think OP was saying she would put a paper in with the invitation… Not that she would put it in the newspaper

@Mrshotwing:  I think adding an insert to expound on the details of the situation is perfectly acceptable… It should be fine if you just say… basically that they will be notified if the rain date is being used

I think an insert is perfect. I would also repeat the exact wording on your website if you have one. Something like in the case of inclement weather, you will be notified otherwise, please disregard the alternate date.

@Mrshotwing:  The only change I’d make is: If you don’t hear from us, we will be celebrating our marriage on ___” just to make it more specific.

@Mrshotwing:  Sounds good… I like the suggestion abbie017 made – Being specific is always better 🙂 I would also add that I don’t think you need to capitalize “phone” or “rain” – Beyond that, I think you’ve got it! Put it on some nice paper to match your invite and you’ll be golden!
