Ask Kate: Civil Ceremony Invitation Wording

August 6, 2013

Kate Thompson has been offering heart-felt advice and sparklingly different wedding inspiration for ten years. She is married with two children, and often features in the national press. With her warm and caring nature and off-beat sense of humour, she'll answer every question with knowledgable insight and understanding to help and inspire or simply restore your peace of mind.


We’ve having a civil ceremony at a hotel and holding our reception there afterwards. I don’t know how to word the invites. Do I just say the venue, date and time and make no mention of the recepton afterwards, or will the guests think we are not going to feed them?!


With regards to you invitation wording, you could say something like this;

Mr. & Mrs. Jeremy Jackson
request the pleasure of your company
at the marriage of their daughter
Helen Katherine
Mr. Michael John Williams
at Leez Priory, Chelmsford, Essex,
on Saturday 11th September
at 2.30 o’clock
followed by a reception.
