    Hi!! I have 2 questions - wording more of priority though!

    Firstly, I need help with wording in my invitation for those who are invited to the evening but I would still like to come to the ceremony...basically come all day but no meal. So something like although this is an evening invitation you are more than welcome to come to see us get married at 2....

    Any ideas??

    Secondly when would you ask someone to RSVP by? (getting married on 18th October)

    I think that's a tough one, personally I would just send the invites out without mention of the ceremony... but then talk to the people who you would like to be there and explain that they are more then welcome to come to the ceremony as well.

    That or I would have it at the bottom of the invite, something like

    ''We would also welcome you to see us getting married at.....'' or something like that


    It depends on when your venue wants the final numbers by, our wedding is 8th August 2015 and our venue wants final numbers 2 months before, so we are going to ask people to R.S.V.P for mid may I think...

    I agree with Donna I'd leave the bit about the ceremony but verbally say to the people you would love them to join you for the ceremony.

    I'm going to send my invites out mid April with an RSVP date of mid June gives me a month to chase any that don't RSVP as I need to give my venue final numbers the month before.

    My friend did this. The invitation read along the lines of: 'X would like to invite ____ to an evening celeration (etc)... If you would like to attend the ceremony it will be taking place... (and so on)'

    You could put in small in the bottom, 'I would also like you to join in with the ceremony, however due to funds there is no room for the meal. I hope you can join' ? something similar along those lines, as if you say come along to the ceremony to they might just assume they can come along to the sit down dinner too and then you would have to turn them away on the day which isnt pretty.

    I like showgirl's suggestion.
    Maybe have something like ''X and Y would like to invite GUEST to join us at our evening celebration/reception of our wedding. If you would like to attend the ceremony as well it will be taking place at??? and after there are places nearby to relax until the evening celebrations (we will be having an intimate sit down meal while you relax)''
    good luck :)
