    I like it! That sounds like a wedding I’d want to go to for sure!

    Maybe just make the last part more general, like “… memories of their wedding day” or “special day,” something like that?

    it’s traditional (not that you have to follow tradition) to send both a ceremony invitation and a reception card so that might be one option if your concerned.

    I think the wording is very sweet and there’s no need to change it – I think that even older folks will visit the website if they are unsure about a reception/cocktail hour. I would just make very sure to include something along the lines of “We invite all of our guests to join us for dinner and dancing/a cocktail reception/etc. immediately following the ceremony” on your website so that no one will mistakenly think they were invited for the ceremony only.

    You could always stick “reception to follow at _____________” at the end!

    @dressedinlovexo:  I don’t think you need it at all, as long as the wording on your website makes it clear that everyone is invited to the reception and mentions hotel blocks, I think you should be fine.

    If you are concerned that particular guests won’t check the website you could always reach out to those people individualy to be sure they have all of the information they need 🙂

    Love this verse, but agree with the PP who suggested “wedding day” rather than wedding ceremony.
