I don’t think you need to write anything!  You shouldn’t need to justify anything, and I’m sure many people will know you’re just starting out.

Good luck!

Unless you have a complicated situation, e.g. leaving immediately after the wedding to a Peace Corps Post x 2 years, I would keep the welcome message simple:

“We are looking forward to our family and friends sharing our special day with us!”

How about some play on the nursery rhyme: This is the House That Jack Built.

his is the house that Jack built.

This is the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.

This is the rat,
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.

This is the cat,
That killed the rat,
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.

This is the dog,
That worried the cat,
That killed the rat,
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.

This is the cow with the crumpled horn,
That tossed the dog,
That worried the cat,
That killed the rat,
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.

This is the maiden all forlorn,
That milked the cow with the crumpled horn,
That tossed the dog,
That worried the cat,
That killed the rat,
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.

This is the man all tattered and torn,
That kissed the maiden all forlorn,
That milked the cow with the crumpled horn,
That tossed the dog,
That worried the cat,
That killed the rat,
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.

This is the priest all shaven and shorn,
That married the man all tattered and torn,
That kissed the maiden all forlorn,
That milked the cow with the crumpled horn,
That tossed the dog,
That worried the cat,
That killed the rat,
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.

This is the cock that crowed in the morn,
That waked the priest all shaven and shorn,
That married the man all tattered and torn,
That kissed the maiden all forlorn,
That milked the cow with the crumpled horn,
That tossed the dog,
That worried the cat,
That killed the rat,
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.

This is the farmer sowing his corn,
That kept the cock that crowed in the morn,
That waked the priest all shaven and shorn,
That married the man all tattered and torn,
That kissed the maiden all forlorn,
That milked the cow with the crumpled horn,
That tossed the dog,
That worried the cat,
That killed the rat,
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.

Our welcome message goes something like this: “While your attendance is gift enough, if you so choose, we are registered at the following stores..” or “for the following items..” or something like that. I don’t think you need to justify exact items you are registering for. Trust me, some people register for strange things!

FairytaleEnding:  I was really excited to see the answers to your question, because I’m in exactly the same boat. This is my first wedding forum. I just have to comment on how terrible people are at answering questions. Really?!? What’s wrong with you all? get a life!

FairytaleEnding:  I’ve actually never heard of a welcome message. But you could leave a little cute note something along the lines of, “shower jack and jill will love and help them start their life and home together.” other than that, I dont think you really need a welcome message.
