@kimbwerner14:  I would do two separate invitations, one for Missouri and one for Texas. They are two separate events and will have two different though probably overlapping slightly guest lists. And I’m guessing they may be hosted by a diffferent combo of people.

@kimbwerner14:  I suggest two completely different sets of invitations are needed. I really don’t see any other way to do it. Some people are invited to one event. Others to the second.

One set woudl be traditional invitations inviting the guests to the ceremony with reception following. The second set would be to a reception celebrating your recent marriage.

I would also set  up two different spreadsheets to compile data like addresses, email addresses, phone #’s , rsvp’s, thank you notes etc.

Just add an extra line or two on the RSVPs. The wedding invitations go out to everyone. Those who want to travel, can, and those who can’t make it to the ceremony can choose go to the second party so something like 

 

__ # Attending Wedding Ceremony on [insert date]

 

__ # Attending Texas Reception on [insert date]

 

__ # Attending Missouri Reception at [place] on [insert date]

 

on the RSVPs would help you keep track of everything without having to have two separate invitation sets. This way people in Missouri don’t feel left out by not being invited to the wedding itself but still have the option to decline attendance to the ceremony while accepting attendance to the reception closer to home.
