We will be having a minimony in September with the big party next June. While it was originally going to be just immediate family, we've decided to invite the members of the party who live in town and a couple of our closer friends. (A total of 10-15 people).
How do you think we should about formally inviting people? Does anyone have any suggested language?
I just called and texted people for ours (about 20 people) in early September. I’m so over spending money on paper. If I had everyone’s e-mail addresses I would probably have sent something that way. You could mail something formal though! I explained it pretty much like you did in your post - a small intimate ceremony and a big thing next summer.
I agree! I'd use the same wedding invitation wording you'd normally use, but you can certainly add the word "intimate" to describe your ceremony if you're trying to let them know it will be a small affair!
