    Our invites are currently a work in process, I think I am happy with the design of the pocket fold but I am still working on the inserts, there is no rush as I have 2 years before I start sending them but as I am making them completely from scratch I want to give myself plenty of time to make them (and they are fiddly so far taking me about 2 hours to make one invite).
    I am currently working on the wording of the actual invitation part of the invite, but I would like something less formal, a little bit quirky and that will set the tone of the wedding. So far I have
    ---------(Daughter's name)-----------
    Would love it if you would join her in celebrating the marriage of her mummy and daddy
    --------------(My name)----------------
    and
    --------------(h2b name)---------------
    On December 31st 2017
    At 3 o'clock
    At (Venue name and address)
    Drinks, dinning and dancing to follow

    I'm not really happy with this as it just feels like I have no idea what to write (which I don't) so have just given the basic info and that's it. I hoping someone could give me a little helping hand to word the invitation better to give it a little extra fun (if you know what I mean). Any idea's are really appreciated.
    TIA xxx

    I'm planning on having mines from my son. Not sure of a flat style yet or a fold so it will either say at the top or on front "all because mummy & daddy fell in love..." Then my sons name would like to invite you to the wedding of his mummy and daddy then ours named date time venue etc

    Yes I 100% want the invite to be from our little girl. I don't get on with my mum or his (atm) and h2b hasn't had anything to do with his dad in 27 years so I wouldn't feel right having them as the hosts. I should have my dad as the host as he is contributing a large amount to the wedding, but if I had him as the host and not my mum all hell would break loose. So I thought by having our daughter as the host it would 1- eliminate all those problems and 2- emphasise how the importance of us getting married is making us a family in everything including name.
    So since posting I've really put my head down and thought about what I want to do with the wording, we will be having a lot of little poems and rhymes in the wedding to explain to our guest what we want to happen i.e saving sparkler favors until midnight, writing on our wish tree etc so I thought I would incorporate this idea into the invite and I have so far come up with this:

    With one year to end, and another to begin,
    Tamara Ann wants you to join her in bringing it in.
    Her mummy and daddy are tying the knot,
    We’ll be eating, drinking, and dancing a lot.
    On New Years Eve, at (venue) Winery ,
    It starts at , so put on your finery.
    Be ready to party, please don’t hesitate,
    To join us this special day as we celebrate
    A new year,
    A new life
    A new husband and wife

    I will be adding a "details and directions" insert in to the invite which will make all the details (names, times, venue etc) clear to avoid any confusion. It needs a few little tweaks which I will have a think about, but what are peoples opinions on my idea so far? Does it work?

    I think that's lovely as long as you have enough space on the invite to fit it all in

    Thank you ladies, the more I read it through the happier I am with it. I should have enough room for it, I'll have the poem as the fixed part of the invite and then have 3 double sided inserts one for menu choices (as I don't think it will fit on to just one side) one for details and directions with accommodation information on the other side and one insert for the RSVP

    Thank you Camila, I'm defo more happy with it than I was with the original format. I just want to tweak the first couple of lines a bit as I don't feel they flow well but I'll look at it again with fresh eyes another day :D
