Personally, I love your wording as is.All of the reasons you have listed as to why the symbolic ceremony….actually would still make me feel honored that you thought to invite me. I say order.

@gemchick82:  In short, I’m having a destination cruise wedding at sea in June 2014.  I’d like to send these out as soon as possible to allow anyone who needs/wants to go/plan/save the ability to do so.

Do you already have the cruise dates booked?

@gemchick82:  Ah, just checking!

Since it’s so soon after your legal wedding, I think the symbolic wedding phrasing is best (rather than vow renewal).

Have you considered making a free wedding website?  That way you can go into all the details about the ports where you’ll be stopping, the cermeony/reception details, etc.  Because if I were going to spend a week on a cruise, I’d need as much up front details as possible before thinking of going.  I used mywedding.com for free.

@gemchick82:  With Mywedding.com you can add a password and user name so it cannot be pasted all over the place.  No HTML skills are needed.

 

Making an invitation travel brochure seems creative, however, invitations usually go out 8-12 weeks prior to the wedding day (even with a DW) and people probably need to know that information way before then to assess whether or not they want to go and to book their flights/cruise, etc.

 

If you want to mail your invitation travel brochure out way in advance, it have to be before they would need to be timed with when they need to book their flights.  On the other hand, sending them way to early, the problem is people let them slide or they forget, etc.

I,m getting maried in port before my ship departs for the bahamas I’ve thought of just sneeking off to get married in our home town and then having a symbolic wedding afterwords with everyone not knowing were already married but I really like your Idea. I will have to ponder on doing it for myself but I hope it works out wonderfully for you.
