@beanowl:  Search for the bee “flying_hearts” – she had a couple reception only events (each person’s home town, I believe) so her stuff would be great examples on how to word it.  🙂

@beanowl: I would think it’s still okay to say either “celebrate the wedding of..” or “celebrate the marriage of…”even though  you are getting married earlier in a private ceremony. As you said, it’s still on the same day, and still the traditional format of ceremony followed by reception. Don’t make it more complicated than it needs to be. You have to save all of that energy for figuring out when to use caps. Wink

I also struggled with wording but found looking at the language and grammar of cards on Minted.com helped a lot.

Thisplace, UK

formal invitation to follow



Haven’t worked out the invitiation wording yet 😉

I am planning a small wedding with a larager reception, and plan to send out STDs for eveyoner as a heads up. Then when the time comes for the wedding invite, some will get a standard invitation for the ceremony/reception, and the rest will just get reception/dance invites.
