How to word invitations for a wedding abroad?

I know this topic has been covered before as I remember reading a brilliant piece of text for her invitation written by another Bride a few months back which included loads of details etc about the trip, but do you think I can find that thread? Of course not!



I want to invite our friends and family to our wedding on a cruise but I want to make it clear we understand they might not be able to come because of financial costs etc!



Has anyone else written something similar?



And what was the response that you got from those you send invites to? Was it mainly positive with many acceptances, or lots of declines?



Any help would be FAB! Thanks!
