invitation wording advice

Hi. I'm having my cocktail hour/reception at 6:30 but the wedding ceremony is at 3:00. How do I word the reception card? thanks. Kristen

Now that all the rough planning stuff is behind me, I'm starting to have fun!! : )

I wish you all the best (its not easy, i know). Let me know how you make out. :)

I am in the same situation. I think the best way to do it is to have a separate reception invitation (I believe that this is the traditional way to do invitations anyway) The ceremony invitation is the standard wording and then the reception invitation usually reads something like:

Reception to follow at: Place at Six Thirty in the Evening etc.

I have the same set up - mass at 330P and reception at 700. I opted to not use a reception card & put all the information on the primary invite.

The first half invited them to the ceremony...then in another paragraph I wrote:

Celebration will begin at seven o'clock in the evening {insert name of reception location, city and state)

The best way is to have a seperate reception card with your reception information. There is often not enough room for all of the information on the invite, especially if the reception is in a seperate location from the ceremony. All invitation companies offer matching reception cards to go with whatever invite you may choose.

Best of luck, Stephanie, Classic Favors and Invitations
