A Romantic Sunset Pre-wedding Session in Hong Kong

Gloria and Don picked the most dreamy time of day to take pre-wedding photos: sunset! The sky’s orange glow embraced the lovers in romance as they snapped away along with their photographer Dream Seeker Studio. Gloria and Don chose several locations to shoot, all of which granted them captivating scenes. Our favorite has to be the seaside spot because the rocky shore and glistening water just made Gloria and Don’s photos looks like they’re taken from somewhere far away, or even from a movie. We’re quite sure that you will enjoy all of Gloria and Don’s photos, just the way we did, so please do stay with us and keep scrolling until the end.

How To Word Tricky Wedding Details and Communicate Them To Guests Politely

Some wedding details can be tricky to say to guests, like telling someone they can’t bring a plus one or that kids are not allowed, to name a few. While you want to get the message across, you also want to avoid hurt feelings or any misunderstanding with your loved ones. To help you out, here are tips on how to word tricky wedding details and communicate them with guests politely.

How do I say kids are not invited to my wedding?

If you’re planning on having an adults-only celebration, here are some ways to word this detail, whether it be in your wedding invitation or wedding website.

How do I say no plus ones?

If you have a limited wedding budget, you can forego plus ones. To make it crystal clear that plus ones aren’t allowed at your wedding, write your guest(s) names on the reply card, leaving no room for them to add anyone else.

Another option is to add a section saying, “We have reserved __ seat(s) in your honour”, and fill in this gap with the exact number of people you’re inviting.

You may also further reiterate that guests can’t bring additional people by by adding something like this:

In case you want to open up the reception to plus ones, you can use this:

Meanwhile, if a guest still ask you if he or she can bring a date (plus one) to your wedding, here’s what you can say or reply:

How do I say we will have a limited bar or a cash bar?

While overflowing alcohol is the ideal for all weddings and after parties, not all couples can accommodate this. If you will be limiting alcohol here are some options on how to communicate this with guests.

How do I let my guests know that we prefer cash gifts?

The tradition for Hong Kong weddings is giving cash gifts to couples, but with the advent of more western-style weddings, some guests may think of giving gifts. If you still prefer cash gifts, here are some ways to relay it politely in your invitations or wedding websites.

If you’re opening the option to deposit cash gifts online, here are some ideas on how to relay this:

For a creative twist, you can also use one of these poems:

We hope these are helpful, but of course, you’re free to create your own wordings if you want! If you have other tricky wedding details to tell guests, you can take inspiration from these samples for those too. Just remember to keep wordings light but clear. That’s all!

(2) Have your pet announce your wedding date.

We love this idea! If you have a gathering soon and plan to announce your wedding date to friends and family, how about letting your pet come in with a save-the-date signage. Or for couples who are sending physical or digital save-the-date cards, add a photo with your pet.

(3) Include your pet in your ceremony as a flower girl or paige boy.

Yes, let you pet walk down the aisle! If not as a flower girl or paige boy, your pet can also walk along with the entourage. Your entourage is made up of your closest friends and family, so why not add your fur baby too?
