Lakeside003:  Hmm… How about..


Together with their families


invite you to join in celebration of their marriage




 or “in celebration of their wedding”?.. 


This is a little less formal than “Request the pleasure of your company”, so it depends what you’re going for 🙂

I heard “for a celebration of marriage” or “wedding celebration”  for an event after the wedding.

How about “Invite you to share in the joy of our marriage” ?

Lakeside003:  So a wedding reception is what occurs immediately after your ceremony to thank your guests for attending your ceremony.

It sounds like you are having a post wedding celebration. 

First, after you are married you should send out wedding announcements. They should read like so:

Bride’s Full Name


Groom’s Full Name

announce their marriage

May 24, 2015

City, Alaska


After that, you could send out invitations to your celebration party after. They may read:


Mr. and Mrs. Newlastnameifyou’rechangingit

request the pleasure of your company

to celebrate their recent marriage

Day, date, etc.

It’s pretty good. In the last line, I would use “ensure” rather than “insure.”

It might take a few extra reads to realize that your private ceremony is on a different date than the subsequent cruise celebration.Your invitation would still be fine without that first sentence about the private ceremony. 

We also had a private ceremony with a celebration to follow a few months later. Our paper invitation only mentions the celebration, and on the wedding website we explain that there was an earlier private ceremony.

Lakeside003:  You’ll want to keep the “voice” consistent. So rather than ‘bride and groom were married on” and then “together with OUR families…” you’d want to say either “Bride and Groom were married on… together with their families, they invite you….” or skip the private ceremony line and announce that some other way (seperate announcement or website).

Lakeside003:  Yeah that sounds better! And I would skip the whole “we/they kindly request…” and just say “please arrive…”. Too fussy.
