@Mollytov: I’m kind of no help on the invite. But I would suggest a website to include all the details. Looks beautiful! Which island is it? We are getting married on Gabriola Island!!

Beautiful Location, have a wonderful 2 days celebrating with your nearest and dearest!! =)

I actually commend you, there have been a few times already I’ve been ready to call everything off and just go with our immediate families somewhere and get married, but too many things have been set in stone and I really do forget how huge even our “immediate” family is! Go with your heart!! xo

Yay, I’m so happy for you! I’ve been looking forward to seeing planning posts from you..

No advice on where to find invites, but I must say that your wedding sounds like it’s totally going to be kick-ass! :]

I have a few questions….Are most of the people coming to the celebration coming from long distances? Have they ever ben there before? If they haven’t you have so many great options to make them as fun and creative as you want.

If you are trying to make them simple and to the point I think a “traditionally” styled invitation with a side card that has all the festivity information on it would work perfect.

If you want to get creative, look up destination wedding invitations….I’ve found some great ones on Etsy. You can get really creative there ie: put cabin numbers on the invites, include a map and a list of activities or a brouchure about the area…the possibilities are endless.

All the best! your location is BEAUTIFUL 🙂

It sounds like this is perfect for the both of you and you sound relieved of the stress of a big wedding.  I just wanted to say Congrats and have a blast planning it out.  It sounds like a fantastic 2 days of fun!

That looks gorgeous!!!!!!! 🙂 You could say something like Come join Mr. (name here) & Mrs. (name here) for two days on the beautiful Island of (name here.) For their wedding. & With it only being 20 or so people you can just call everyone and say everythings paid for. & Who you need to bring food or whatever else. Or you could have listing on a seperate paper with the invites saying what is paid for.

Congrats! your small two day event will be amazing! I am also having a small 2 days event on a gulf island, Pender! 

Except i think yours will be more secluded than ours, unfortunitly i couldnt find anywhere in the GI that could accomadate everyone, wish i knew about your place last year 🙂 

I don’t have expamples of invites for you though, we just put our date on our invite snd then told everyone it was a two day thing as we’re having a bbq the night before. BUT i did make a website that had all the info about the island the day and the bbq.. etc… 

I’m not sure if you have any out of towners but if you do make sure you give them really really clear ferry instructions. As ours will be on a weekend , (just after yours) i’ve also told everyone to make a reservation, you know what the bc ferries are like.. (rolling my eyes). 

Congrats on having a date!

@Mollytov: I think it would be perfect if you are trying to keep the costs down (as most brides are!) to do an invite for the ceremony and then make a website that you include all the pertinent info on (ie: reservations, cookout details, ferries…whatever!)

Like I said earlier….the possibilities are endless!
