I think it’s good as is and doesn’t need editing.

However, since you want feedback…

You’ve used the word celebrate three times so maybe consider a different word (so it flows better).

I personally get irked by the word reception when you’ve eloped but that’s just me being difficult!

When I read “casual reception” I think maybe light refreshments, apps, or cake and punch.  Will you be serving food?  I know you probably wish to convey maybe the dress code or environment but perhaps the wording could be changed up!

maybe use “semi formal”  or “dressy casual” or “non formal” depending on what you want as far as ambience and atmosphere. This way they know what to wear attire wise, and still know that it will be a full party with food, just a slightly more laid back atmosphere 🙂

if you will have food/dinner, Let them know that dinner will be served. So they dont eat beforehand. 


looks good! I myself want to do something like this for my wedding! 🙂

It all sounds good to me, except ‘To celebrate our love & marriage’. Being invited to celebrate someone’s marriage is lovely, being asked to celebrate their love is a bit..  cringey to me .

To reduce one of the “celebrates” I would just say-

We look forward to sharing this special occasion with our  nearest and dearest
