    Hi Seabastian,
    I'm having some troubles with wording our wedding invitations.

    I am Greek Orthodox and my partner Lebanese Maronite. Our invites will be issued by my parents.
    We are having church ceremonies both to be held on the one day. Greek church from 12.30-1.30 and Maronite from 2-2.30pm. The reception party will be at 5pm.
    Firstly, I am not sure how to word on one invitation that there will be 2 church ceremonies and Secondly, I don%u2019t want to make people feel like they have to come to both churches as I know how much of a long day it will be.
    Do you have any suggestions on wording?  You%u2019re help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks, Melina
