I am creating my wedding website with information for the guests. What I am trying to get across on one page are the following things:
– Our ceremony and reception are in the same place, however there is a 2-3 hour gap between each. We can’t afford to do a cocktail or anything of the sort, so I’m trying to suggest things for people to do in the time after the ceremony.
– Parking for the ceremony would be free in the lot across the street because it’s under 2 hours. However, to come back and park for the reception (obviously much longer period of time) is a flat rate of $6 if they mention they attended my wedding when they leave. We can’t afford to cover everyone’s parking for the reception and so I want people to know to bring money just in case they want to use that lot.
I am concerned that the way I worded it on my website sounds rude and would like your opinions on whether or not I should change the way it’s written before making my website public.
This is what I have for the ceremony section. I’ve omitted names for privacy sake:
“We’re thrilled to be having our wedding at (venue). The room is located on the second floor of the structure and there will be a sign on the door to direct you to the correct spot.
We’ll be having a short civil ceremony officiated by (pastor) . At the conclusion of the ceremony, we will be heading to the nearby (picture location) for pictures. If you’d like, you’re more than welcome to come along! If not, check out the Local Attractions page of our website for suggestions on some great places near our venue to check out between the ceremony and reception!
A parking lot is located across the street from (venue). When exiting the lot, please mention that you attended our wedding ceremony at (venue) in order to receive your afternoon parking (up to a two hour maximum) for free.
Can’t wait to have all of you share in our special day!”
And for the reception part I have:
“Our dinner and dance reception will be held in the same location as the ceremony.
Dinner will be served at 6 PM. Please advise us of any food restrictions or allergies through this website or our personal emails.
The room also features an attached private outdoor patio area with tables and chairs, so feel free to head out there when you feel like taking a break from dancing!
Again, a parking lot is located across the street from (venue). When exiting the lot, please mention that you attended our wedding reception at (venue) in order to receive your evening parking at a flat rate of $6
Can’t wait to party with all of you!!!!”
Is this okay or should I change it? If so, how?
