- Wedding: September 2012
I know it’s a little early to order them, but I have a voucher and a killer coupon that expires at the end of the month, so I’m testing out wording and such on the invites.
About the wedding: it’s not a fancy, black tie event. It is a religious ceremony, but I don’t want to use “the honour” request, and I’m trying to keep it short and sweet so I can have room for reception info on the bottom of the invite to save some money by not having to purchase reception cards.
This is the wording I have saved:
(Edited this part to add new, hopefully better wording)
Maegan (last name) and Rudy (last name)
INVITE YOU TO WITNESS AS THEY UNITE IN MARRIAGE
SEPTEMBER 15, 2012 AT 4:30 PM
(church name here)
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS (zip here)
RECEPTION TO FOLLOW FROM 6 PM-12 AM
(reception venue name and address here)
Is the “endless love” thing weird? It goes with the theme, but I don’t want to be dumb. (Fixed this one!)
Is it tacky to put recep info on the invitation?
Should I shorten it to just “reception from 6-12” instead of the breakdown of stuff? (Fixed this one too.)
I want to save money, but I don’t want to be “cheap.” Would it be better to order reception cards?
I want to order RSVP postcards from VP but they will be a different paper texture; does this make a difference/will people care?
