I am currently in the thick of designing our complete invitation suite. One of the MAIN things that I am having trouble with the wording on is our Day of Festivites.
We are having our cocktail hour, ceremony, and reception all in one place, easy right? Except we are having our cocktail hour first, ceremony at sunset, then reception. I am trying to create a seperate card, like how you would normally do for the reception, but include the cocktail hour information. I’m really struggling with the wording on this.
Any suggestions would be extremely helpful, or even your real life examples. Thanks!

i would just word it like any invitation. so if cocktail hour starts at 5, put 5 on the invitation.
then have the staff usher people into the room where the ceremony is when cocktail hour is over. when the ceremony is over, someone will tell everyone to go to X room for the reception.

“Cocktails will be served from five o’clock until six, followed by a sunset ceremony. Reception to follow”

I’m not sure the proper wording for something like this, but I’d go with @Trilly‘s. Are you okay with people skipping the cocktail hour and coming just for the ceremony and reception because that might happen.
