Sister of the Groom and BM here. Bride/Groom live in CA and wedding is in Groom's hometown, where I currently live. Almost all guests other than Groom's family are oot guests. MOG and the MOB plan on co-hosting a day after open house style party in honor of the newlyweds for anyone/everyone to gather. It will be informal and at my home.
I'm looking for any pointers/etiquette things I may not be aware of or things I may be flubbing. Wording suggestions would be especially helpful.
All I have thus far is "Eat, Drink and They're Married! Please join us post-wedding celebration in honor of the newlyweds." We are also planning to do an electronic invite and via word of mouth. I'm not sure the etiquette on this since it is an informal gathering.
Any help is much appreciated. Thank you!
ETA and there will already be an issue with some of Groom's family not being able to or not attending this party. A cousin decided that she will throw her kid's jr high graduation party the day after since family will be around anyway. I guess a question would be is this an acceptable etiquette thing to throw this post-wedding party since cousin has announced her party? We had been planning to do this but hadn't gotten invites out since the wedding isn't till July. Cousin hasn't sent invites but has announced her plan on Groom's family group online and to family in person.
