- Wedding: January 2010
I’m not having a traditional wedding, and am having trouble figuring out what to do with my announcement/invitations. I’ve been reading other’s post on elopements small weddings, but I’m still stumped.
We are have a City Hall wedding in NYC on a Friday morning with immediate family only (parents and siblings). After the ceremony we are having a small lunch reception at a restaurant, again family only. But later that evening we would like to ask our friends, co-workers to meet us at a bar/lounge for drinks (basically after they get out of work, so it will almost be like after work drinks). We are not paying for the after wedding/after work drinks, and basically treating it like the when we go out for birthday drinks with friends.
We also want to let people know that after the wedding in NYC, we are relocating to Denver. Actually, we are moving to Denver a month before our before our wedding, and then flying back to the NYC area in January to get married. Then going back to Denver to live for the next phase of our lives. Co-workers and close friends in our everyday lives all know what is going on and the after wedding/after work drinks thing would be the final thing that seals the deal for our wedding/ and relocation.
I wanted to send out something that tells people we are getting married, moving and that we would like to meet up with them for drinks. I read that I shouldn’t write that the wedding and lunch reception is family only, but we don’t want them to be confused thinking that the going out for drinks is a cocktail reception that we are paying for.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how to go about this?
