Hey Guys, I am struggleing to come up with the wording for our invites. It is a 15 guest wedding, it is outdoors under a gazebo, and we will be dressed like a formal bride and groom. It is only family members, no friends, and it is being hosted by us not our family. We are not a traditional couple so the traditional lovey dovey wedding wording really isn’t us, but we don’t want cheesy either. So I am looking for a fun light hearted wording that informs guests that they are a one of only a few that will be attending our wedding and we would really like them there. If that makes sense.

(Bride) and (Groom) are tying the knot!
Please join us as we take our vows,
Drink a toast – or two or three
And dance the night away
on â€¨(date) â€¨at (time)
We joyfully invite you to our wedding celebration.
On this day we will marry the one
we laugh with, live for, dream with, love.
Boy met Girl.
For the rest of the story â€¨join us on â€¨(date) â€¨at (time)
as (Bride) â€¨and (Groom)â€¨ celebrate their commitment.
Light dinner and dancing to follow.
Mr. and Mrs. (Bride’s Parents)
Are delighted to finally give away their daughter, (Bride)
To (Groom), who has no idea what he’s gotten himself into.
Come celebrate at the reception we’ve waited a lifetime to throw:
Please respond no later than ____.
Don’t look for us after the party — we’re interviewing renters for (Bride’s) room.

A hand-written note is the most unequivocal way of letting people know that they are among an elite hand-picked few, and natural wording written the way you normally write is the surest way of expressing your true self. The fact that the natural hand-written informal note is also the most traditional proper form for a small informal wedding is just an added benefit. So you would write
Dear Auntie Aspasia,
George and I are getting married on (date), and you are one of the few special people we would like to have at the wedding. It will be out of doors, under the gazebo at (location ), starting at about (time). We’ll finish up with a tea reception/dinner-dance/grand luau with karaoke water-skiing/whatever at (reception site) from (start-time) to (end-time). Please let us know whether you can be present.

Thank you, I will for sure take this into consideration. The personalized letter is a good idea.

I think the personalised letter aswell. Or you could hold a dinner with the invited group and announce it at the dinner. With little invites to take home. A little speech about how you are only inviting those in the room as they are special yada yada yada

For my 15 people wedding; I just did a STD. Honestly those coming knew and knew our reasons for a small wedding. I just put the ceremony information on the front and on the back I let them know about the weekends accommodations, and etc.
