Yes, if you’re having a wedding, I think you need the words wedding or marriage in your invite. If I received an invite that said,”Celebrate as we begin our new life together…” I would wonder if the couple was getting married or moving in together?? Can you say, “Please join us at our marriage ceremony on date, time, location…”

We didn’t have the word wedding or marriage in our invites. I personally like the wording , but thats just my 2 cents

 I’d say "please celebrate our union" or "please celebrate our marriage", I think.


P.S. Isn’t there a Bee named miss radish?

I think that wording sounds perfectly fine. As someone who attends a lot of same-sex marriages and commitment ceremonies, I can tell you that is typicaly wording for one of their invites.

I think it’s helpful for the guests that you specify what the event is. So yes, "wedding" does need to appear somewhere there.

I think it’s beautiful – sweet and simple. Were you thinking of having any type of reception card? I’m going to assume that most of your guests will probably be able to figure out that you’re getting married. The only concern I would have is that it is nice, as guest, to be able to figure out how long the event might last (wedding + reception? wedding only?  reception only?  it makes a difference…) and whether you’re going to be fed, or if you should plan on getting your own lunch/dinner or whatever.  That’s why a reception card would be a nice touch – or at least a line on the bottom of the invitation saying "Dinner and Dancing to Follow" or something like that.

I agree you need the keywords marriage, union, wedding, etc somewhere in there. You’re most likely going to be keeping a few inviations as keepsakes (or at least your parents/grandparents might) and somewhere down the generations your great grandchild might come across it and wonder what it was if it doesn’t specifically say so.

"…as we vow our lives to one another " is still short, but a bit better in my opinion, as it says what is taking place on that date.

 "as we join together in marriage"

"as we join together in love (or life) and marriage"

"as we begin our marriage together"

"as  we begin our married lives together"

"as we unite our lives in marriage."

I don’t know, just some ideas off the top of my head. Good luck.
