I think it’s really cute as is. Maybe to make sure people know it’s not the actual invite put on the bottom *formal invitation to follow*. That’s what we did with ours and yet some people were still confused Undecided

I like it.  I would try to make it less wordy (get one of your friends to help edit it) but I really like the idea of a Mexican wedding.  It sounds like so much fun.

I could be just totally ignorant, but I had to look up “fandangos”. My FI is Mexican and I live in a Mexican neighborhood and my grandfather is Mexican and I’ve never heard of that. According to the oh-so-trustworthy (heh) wikipedia, fandango is a dance from Spain. So maybe you might want to change it to a more well-known dance? Again, it could just be me not knowing much about dancing!

I do speak a good amount of Spanish and my FI is a native speaker, so if you need any help, let us know! 🙂 Good luck!

I think it sounds cute!  I would just add “Formal invitationto follow” like punky brewster mentioned.  I’m sure as you decide on more things your family will start to understand the casual concept:)

yeh I am Mexican and I don’t get the fandangos part either lol…other than that It’s cute! As someone mentioned though it seems like a lot of words for an STD.

 

ETA: I think just the first two sentences are enough…also for the casual thing perhaps the best way is just word of mouth.

I agree with JennyChicago, I think you just need the first 2 lines.  The rest of the information does make it seem more like an invitation and not a STD.  Sounds like a fun wedding!
