So my fiance and I would like to host an open house the day after our wedding. A lot of his family doesn’t live in our town, and so they have never seen our house. Really, that’s the primary reason for the open house – to show off where we live. Does anybody have any ideas for wording?
I’ve been thinking about it for the last few days, and I still have nothing other than:
“Please join us the day after our wedding for an open house at: XXX Street at 11 am”
Also, my fiance wants to include this in our invitations…I’d like to mail this separately since my parents our hosting the wedding, but we would be hosting this open house. Is it weird to include it in the invitations?

@Mulan05: We are organizing something similar as some of our guests have to travel from overseas to New Zealand. We have let everyone know verbally, but we also put a private card in their invitations only. ” It would be our pleasure if you would join us in an after function on…at….
I think weddings are so short and that the celebration should last all weekend lol

@Mulan05: I’d recommend sending it out separately since different parties are hosting the events.
Maybe send a separate photo card out with a picture of you guys in front of your house and some cutesy note on the back stating:
The day after the wedding at 11AM,
Please be our guest and come tour our nest!

I agree with Kimy, putting an additional card in those specific people’s invitations would be the best way to go. I would say something like: We don’t want the party to end on June 8th, so please join us at our home XXX Street on June 9th at 11am.

Thanks so much for the ideas! You have no idea how much I appreciate the help! I think I’m going to combine all these ideas in one. 🙂
