So we’re having a backyard wedding, 5;30 private dinner for 50 (family, prime rib…) then we’re inviting our extended racing friends ( additional. 75-100) for catered pulled pork, pizza l, wings, desserts and plenty of drinks at 7:30. We’re planning to have our ceremony at 8:30 by candles for under our maple tree. We’re hoping someone can suggest how to word the 7:30 pit-crew party? Any suggestions?

    “Join us for a pre ceremony dinner and drinks from X to X! Ceremony will immediately follow”.


    Will the private dinner be at the same location as this dinner/ceremony?

    If everything is one place, it seems more feasible to have everyone come at the same time with the same menu

    Completely agree with this. Otherwise, what you have is a tiered wedding...

    We’re having a private family dinner as we have elderly who are particularly vulnerable to covid who will leave following the dinner and watch the ceremony online. It will be “tiered” but just looking for some ideas to word the party invite. It’s a pork, pizza and hooch get together as racing has its roots during Prohibition to run liquor. Many of our racing friends have refused the vaccine and social distancing guidelines and can honestly act and speak poorly so we have chosen to have out wedding in this manner.

    The wording is going to be tricky because although your heart sounds like it's in the right place, it's hard to do a tiered wedding without sounding like you're excluding a segment of your guests.
