Invitation for the wedding

Wedding invitations are being sent via U.S. Postal service with a deadline for RSVP by July 30, 2023. Please register as soon as possible. Instead of the traditional way of responding to a wedding invitation, we have opted to provide our invitees with a more modern way of responding. In the interest of time and convenience, RSVP should be made by calling, texting, or registering online. On the invitation, a phone number and a website address is provided. You must call or text (same phone number) or go online to RSVP; and use the RSVP Code located on the back of the invitation to complete your RSVP. Live agents are available 24 hours 7 days at the RSVP Center to take your call. Regretfully, attendees without a RSVP registration on file will not be admitted into the event center by event center staff/security.
