Here is my situation. My husband and I got "legally married" but did not have a formal ceremony at all (my husband was not a U.S. Citizen so that is part of the reason - now he is a permanent resident). We are now having our formal ceremony with reception etc. How do we word the invitation since we are already married but have not had the formal ceremony? (We initially got married at the courthouse with 2 witnesses). We both now have the same last name FYI. Also this is my 2nd marriage, DH's first. Anyone else been/or is in a similar situation?
