Hello ladies! I read some of the previous posts about wedding invitations and wanted to seek some more advice. This is both our second wedding and we both have children, we are doing a small ceremony with just immediate family (which ends up being almost 18 since I have alot of family!!) at a B&B and then having dinner at one of our favorite resturants in St. Augustine. My question is how would we word something if we wanted to invite friends to the dinner that wouldn't be at the ceremony and is it rude to state something along the lines of we would love to have them come for dinner and their gift would be them coming and paying for the own dinner?? I'm not sure if i'm making sense in this post, sorry if i'm wordy tonight!
Thanks for any suggestions!
