My hubby and I had our small family ceremony early April before he was deployed to Afghanistan. I am trying to get things in line for our vow renewal in October and I'm trying to find a good way to word our invitations. This is what I have so far, tell me what you think:
Jane Anne Doe
John Allen Doe
First Lieutenant, United States Marine Corps
(the Knot said the rank is supposed to be worded like that, I'm double checking though)
Invite you to join them
in a celebration of their new marriage
on Friday, the twenty second of October
Two thousand ten
Five o' clock in the evening
Happy Days Lodge
333 Smith Rd.
Anytown, OH 44555
Reception Immediately Afterward
Everybody who is invited knows we are married and they understand this is a vow renewal, so I'm not hiding that (I'm sorry, but I think it's tacky when people hide that their married- we wanted to tell the whole world!). And our vow renewal is not going to be like a wedding either. For example, we are both going to walk down the aisle together, and there isn't going to be a bouquet or garter toss (thank goodness b/c I never liked them anyways LOL).
I want this to be like how people sometimes do their destination weddings, they had their ceremony w just their family somewhere far away and later on they have their elaborate party. Thank you for the replies ahead of time
