My fiance and I are having a private wedding ceremony with our weddingn party and family about two hours prior to our “wedding celebration” that everyone is invited to.
Do you think it’s a good idea (or just plain nice/adorable) to send out a separate invitation for the private ceremony? That way I’m not just sending out some lame email saying MEET HERE AT 2pm!

I think it would be nice. 🙂 A little more special than a “heads up” email.

We’re having the exact same thing. Private ceremony, big reception. What we did was design an extra “card” to go inside the invitation and put them in the invites that we sent to our families and witnesses so they had the info for our ceremony. That way everyone got the same “reception invite” but those that we wanted to invite to our ceremony got an extra insert.
Then on the insert we mentioned that our ceremony was a private affair and we kindly asked they do not bring extra people. So far it’s gone down pretty well. And it’s great because they have the info for both the ceremony and reception together.

I would! The extra card idea is a good one!
