Another Latin Mass question-invites

So... I feel like somewhere in my invitation I should note that this will be a Traditional Latin Mass.

I could put
request the honor of your presence
At the Nuptial High Mass
etc. etc.

Or should I put it somewhere else on the main invitation? Like just say "at the wedding/nuptials" etc. etc. and then at the bottom "Traditional Latin High Mass to follow"?

Or, I could put it on the same enclosure card as the reception details (the only enclosure I'm adding).

What have you done?

And yeah... I have plenty of time to decide this, put I'm going DIY and I want to make a mock-up next weekend when I'm at my parents' house.

    The correct term is "extraordinary form".
    If you think more info is needed..then parenthesis maybe?

    So you can say the nuptial mass celebrated in the extraordinary form. (Tridentine)

    we just mentioned the nuptial mass.  we told many ahead of time that we were having a latin mass, but we didnt explicitly say so on the invites.  since the vows, etc. take place prior to the mass, our priest was able to  say a few words in between the vows adn the start of the mass wherein he explained that we were having a latin mass, which is why the vows came first, and then also went over teh communion guidelines for receipt, and explained how folks could follow along in the missals provided.

    Just a thought - perhaps if your church has any requirements (e.g. attire, head coverings) - you can include an insert with this information. Then you can mention the Latin mass on the insert.

    We added the information about the Nuptials on our website.

    oops, totally missed your question... well, if you check back--we're going to do a standard Catholic invite wording (Nuptial Mass), and then include an insert that mentions its a Latin Mass.
