We are having 100 or so people at our Ceramony but only really want our family and close friends at our Reception to keep it intimate..We have decided to include a little card with the invitation that gives details of the Reception, and only those invited will get one..I just dont know how to word the Reception Card..I have scoured the internet looing for something but nothing really has grabbed me as yet..Any suggestions would be great! :0)

A lot of people will say you shouldn’t invite 100 people to the ceremony and then only some to the reception and I agree but your question is about the wording. Just put what normally goes on a reception card: Reception immediately following at <location>.

You really shouldn’t do this. If you can’t/don’t want to host people at the reception then they shouldn’t be invited to the ceremony. The whole point of the reception is to thank your guests for coming to your ceremony and celebrating your marriage with you.

I know everyone should be invited to both but it is just not practical, with people having kiddies and people not getting along together. I dont want to run the risk of extended family upsetting eachother.. We are having a sort of High tea after the ceramony for us to go around and thank all of our guests and for everyone to mingle once we go off and get our photo’s done as it isn’t so formal I feel there is less chance of arguments happening..And to just not invite them at all would be a bit rude I think..

I definitely agree with Moose1209. If you can’t have everyone come to the reception that was invited to the ceremony then I wouldn’t invite them.
