Our story joyfully continues…
Invite you to join us
For a wedding under the stars
To celebrate the beginning
Of our next chapter….
On July, 9th, 2011
At the private residence of
<city, state, zip code>
Adult reception to follow
Should i word the residence differently?? Does the first line sound silly? Oh and ignore the caps the start of each sentence, my phone did that…lol

Also, is the time enough for ppl to know only finger foods and desserts will be served or should i say that on the invite somehow?

I would have assumed that dinner would be served.
Other than that, I think it sounds fine. We worded ours “At the home of…” rather than “At the private residence of…” but I’m not sure that matters.

Hmmm…home does sound better….
Should i say “hor d’ourves and dessert reception to follow” instead?? N then just do the adult only by word of mouth or something??

You could include a line at the bottom that says an hor dourves reception to immediatly follow so people know to have dinner before they come.

I also would assume dinner would be served. I think it’s fine to do adult by word of mouth, or just simply don’t have address the invite to any minors.
Is there a book or story theme that you are carrying through the wedding, that explains the wording?

I would include a line about the nature of the food being served….I’d assume that dinner was being served.

I think that you could say “cocktail reception to follow” and that would make it clear.
