I need some help with our reception cards. We are having a family only ceremony out of town, but we want to invite friends to the reception (in town) to celebrate with us afterwards.
Our reception cards essentially need to be like invitations so that guest who are only invited to the reception can get all the information that they need out of them but, at the same time, I don’t want them to be too similar to the ceremony invitations for the people who will be getting both. (I hope that makes sense).
I was wondering if you could show me your reception cards or give me some ideas for wording for them.
Or perhaps, should I design two reception cards; one for guests who will be attending the ceremony and one for guests who won’t?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂

I would design one invitation for the ceremony guests, that has reception information on it, and one invitation for the reception…
So your ‘both’ invitation would be like any other invitation, and at the bottom, reception to follow at etc.
Your reception invitation would say ” Jack and Jill are getting married February 9, 2013 and request the pleasure of your company at Place, Address, at time to celebrate.
This one is pretty cute from etsy and gives you an idea for some different wording:

Wish I could help! I have a weird wedding deal where some guests are invited to some things (lodging actually) and have no clue how we’re going to make it clear and not end up with a lot of unhappy and confused guests :/

@Josina: I have already designed the invitations and there is too much information needed about the reception to just put it on that invite, but thanks anyway. I love that card, it’s super cute.
@icetea It’s hard isn’t it. I am going to send the invites out to my parents first so they can tell me if it is clear and let me know what else I need to add etc.
I just ended up making two different reception cards; one is like a regular reception card for the guests who will be at the ceremony and, the other is more of a proper invitation for reception-only guests.
