I really need help with my invitation wording, we really want to have our wedding where my fiance spent the best times he ever had with his dad growing up, because his dad cant be with us physically at the wedding, he passed away just over a year ago, the problem im having is its at a lake and although there is lots of space the ground isnt smooth enough for putting out chairs, there are however a few very large rocks that people could sit on, along with a picnic table, so most guest would be standing, i just cant figure out if i should mention its a standing ceremony in the invitation or what, and if i should what would be some ideas on the wording, our ceremony will only be about 15 to 20 mins long so its not a terribly long time to stand
thanks so much

I think you should definitely mention that it is a standing ceremony. It could affect your guests’ footwear selections. Also, make sure that you accommodate any grandmothers or others who may not be able to stand for that length of time.
I don’t know that I would mention this in the actual invitation, but if you are going to include something with directions or have a website, you should put it there.

i agree with [email protected]–mention it somewhere in your invitation, and then put it on the website if you have one. if you can, you may want to call some people individually (the ones who may have problems standing the whole time) to let them know that they can sit on rocks, or that you’ll provide a chair just for them or make some other arrangement so they can be comfortable.
