I want to clear up some of my tabs, so lets close the one on invitation etiquette.
Here are my thoughts on the phrasing:
request the honor of your presence
to celebrate their marriage
[September something, 2012]
RSVP: [our address]
Thoughts? It's just going to be the reception, and I'm not quite sure how to phrase that exactly. I'm also not sure if the "honor of your presence" is quite appropriate considering how godsdamned informal it's going to be. K, thoughts?
I figured in the invitation envelope would be a business card sized paper with the info for the registry, and a postcard with RSVP info (yes/no and chicken/beef/veg, etc).
