My fiance are getting married in a few months – it was a short engagement so planning is sneaking up on us! He is Australian, and most of his family will not be able to make it to the states for a wedding. Because of this, we’re going to australia to have a celebration party there, and then will have a celebration party in our city for local friends and my family, with a much much smaller wedding and reception (not quite family only but less than 50 people) to come after those celebrations.
So how do we write invitations for people who will be invited to the parties but not to the reception and ceremony? And how do we word invitations to people who are included in multipe events?
THANKS SO MUCH!!

I think you will need seperate invites for each event. And then send the appropriate one to the correct guest.
It is impolite to talk about an event to which people are not invited.

I agree with @andielovesj. The only way to avoid unneccessairly drama is by sending out more than one invitation. For the ones invited to multipe invites you can send them their invites together to save on postage.

Yep I definitely agree with PPs, separate invites for each event.

I’m doing something similar, destination wedding with a local reception in my hometown for family who will be unable to attend at a later date. We are just having 2 invites made and we are going to have our invitations be folders so those who get invited to both will just get both along with rsvp card, etc. We have someone custom designing our invitations so it all matches, its easier this way.
