    I’d word it as a normal wedding invitation, and spread by word of mouth that you’re having two ceremonies, and only one will be legal. It’s pretty common to do that these days, i’m sure people will understand that it isn’t a gift grab 🙂

    I’d say it’s a wedding. People should not be appalled that you have two ceremonies. We’ll be doing a legal ceremony in the US and an religious ceremony in Mexico, but my MX ceremony is still a “wedding” even though legally, it isn’t. 

    Your guests will probably be thankful that you’re not asking them to fly to the US or vice versa! To me, they’re both weddings.

    If it bugs you for some reason, you can use something else like “You are invited to share in the celebration of our union” or marriage. We didn’t even use the word wedding on our invite.
