Wedding Abroad Invitation Poem


I'm getting married in Cuba, but I know a lot of people won't be able to make it. Therefore I'd like to invite them to the reception, but also to the actual day. Can anyone think of a poem I could put as an insert into my invitations?

So far I've got:

We invite you to our Wedding day,

Which is so very far away

(which isn't really much lol)

Please help!!!

Shell xXx


  • This isn't a poem but this is the insert we put into our invites.

    We really hope you will be able to join us in New York on the xxx September 2011 to help us celebrate our marriage, however we do appreciate this is a huge ask and may not be possible for some.

    The ceremony will be held in xxxx at xxx and this will be followed by an evening reception in a Top Secret location.

    We depart London Heathrow on xxxx on flight xxx and will be staying in xxxxx on Times Square for x nights we will then depart JFK as Mr & Mrs on xxxx on flight xxxx.

    As many of you know there are hundreds of hotels and flights so please don't feel you are restricted to these dates. We have booked through xxx but have also found Virgin and Bon Voyage to be very competitive.

    As we will be booking a reception in New York we would be very grateful if you could let us know by June 2011 if you are booked or plan to book.

    For those of you that are unable to join us in New York we have booked an evening reception at The xxx, xxx on xxx September 2011, so we hope to celebrate with you there.

    We really hope you can join us and make our day as memorable as possible.
  • This is what i am thinking of sending to my guests in a bottle so like a message in a bottle, and then invitations afterwards when we decide where we are going... might be no good but you might be able to adapt it. Let me know what you think?


    a message in a bottle…..

    We send to you this letter, explaining our wedding plan

    We’d love you to be there, and we’re hoping that you can.


    We will be getting married abroad somewhere nice and hot

    We wish we could pay for you but it would cost us quite a lot!


    For this reason we are asking you to bear our date in mind

    So if you wished to join us, we’d think it awfully kind


    We realise it may not be possible for everyone to come

    And understand if you cannot attend as it may be a hefty sum…


    We cannot give an exact date as it’s so far in advance

    But giving you this notice means you might just have a chance


    We plan to marry in July 15 and we hope you can be there

    But if you can’t please don’t worry as we’ll be celebrating here.


    We need to finalise the details the destination and such

    We will keep you updated on the info and we will definitely be in touch.


    So for now we hope you will consider the pending wedding day

    Give us a call to discuss anything you might just want to say….


    Hoping you can be there xxx

    Shane & Naomi

    We put something similar to New York Butterfly on our save the date postcards - being honest I'm not a fan of poems on wedding invites

    Then I made passport wedding invites image

    Hi Heliganeden, i absolutley love your invitations, i see you made them yourself and have a template. I am a while off the invite stage but would love if you could send me some info over on how you made them??

  • heliganedenheliganeden Posts: 1,848

    I had a template someone from here intially sent me, which I amended with my own info and then printed out, it was time consuming making it all match up right and getting the info together but making them was simple, just trimming the pages and sewing them in image

    If you want the template let me know your email address and I can forward it over
