Wedding Invitation Word to Reception Only

Invitation to Reception Only

It is becoming more common for a couple who eloped or had a destination wedding to have a reception later in their hometown. Be careful in the phrasing - don't make it look like there was a local wedding to which they weren't invited, or that you only want more gifts.

Mr. and Mrs. Jackson Fielding
Invite you to join us
In celebrating the recent marriage of our daughter
Alice Pearson Fielding
Arjun Gangadharan
Which took place March 25, 2005 in Dubai, India

Come toast the happy couple
Saturday, August 19, 2005
Grovers Country Club
Plano, Texas


Mr. and Mrs. Jackson Fielding
Invite you to join them for a dinner honoring
Mr. and Mrs. Arjun and Alice Fielding Gangadharan
Saturday, August 19, 2005

This example makes it clear that their daughter is married, yet doesn't make it look like a second wedding, thus gifts are not expected.

Whatever your situation, be it a casual wedding, a non-traditional venue, or the inclusion of children, be sure that the invitation reflects both your personality and the level of formality of the wedding. Use these sample invitation wordings as a jumping-off point, and tailor them to fit your event. As long as you speak from the heart, it will be beautiful.
