We’re having a small destination wedding – 24 guests. Because it’s small, people are traveling quite a ways and it will be the first time of seeing some friends and family in a number of years; we’re hosting a welcome dinner and a farewell brunch so we may have as much time with our guests as possible.
Since everyone is invited, could we have an enclosure inviting them to the other wedding events?
If we do an enclosure for the welcome dinner and brunch, would it be acceptable to have a place on their RSVP cards to indicate if they will be attending? Should I put on the enclosure about that for them to RSVP online for those events or would it get confusing?

Yes, you should include a card in your invite detailing the info about your welcome/farewell events. I believe Miss Blue Whale did something similar for her BBQ, for reference. And yes, I would put something on your RSVP and let them RSVP for all at once

@missmovies: Thanks for the advice. I’ll be sure to check out Miss Blue Whale’s wedding for how she handled it 🙂

I would do it all together. Kind of like a weekend getaway suite! No point in making them all separate and causing more work for yourselves

@MsJ2theZ: I think we’re going to combine things into the invitation packet with an enclosure. It will save us money in postage to send it all together and that way I don’t have to worry that someone didn’t get an event invite and spend time following up with people.
