Wedding Reception Invitation Wording - Tips, Ideas and Short Samples
Do you need some tips and ideas for wedding reception invitation wording?
One of the biggest problems people have when they are in the invitation planning stage of their weddings is how to word the big party after the ceremony.
This is where you let your hair down and really have a good time. This is the time to relax and have a little bit of fun as a new bride and groom and, for many people, the reception is the very best part of the whole day, so how do you tell people that?
A couple of tips should have your wedding reception invitation wording looking just the way you want and be as appropriate as ever.
What about the tricky part? - Children
Sometimes, we have specific tastes and desires for our wedding receptions and we want our guests to be aware of what to expect, but we aren't quite sure how to say it.
For instance, what if you don't want children at your wedding reception? You should know that you're not alone, but how do you tell your second cousin twice removed that you aren't setting up a children's table and you don't want them spilling punch on your dress? No, you really don't sound this mean, and of course you would never say it that way, but the simple fact is that some wedding receptions just aren't meant for children, period.
Some would argue that you don't need to print this on the invitations, but make a phone call; however, if you have lots of guests who have children, you might need to print it as part of your wedding reception invitation wording. Yes, you may risk offending some people, but others will likely agree with your preferences, so if you're going to print it, why not say something such as "Adult only cocktails, dinner and dancing to follow".
(If you do not wish to invite children, read about addressing wedding invitation etiquette for some tips on what you could do.)
In the end, make sure that your wedding reception invitation wording is in the same style as the wedding invitation, and make sure to keep it flowing nicely. Be clear of the specifics and include little extras, such as a map or details like where you've reserved a block of rooms for out of town guests, and your invitation wording will flow nicely and read well.
