Please help me use simpler words in place of idioms
Mr. Narahari and Ms. Trupti are tying the knot. Take the plunge with them Sunday, Nov 30th, at Pavitra Paradise Hotel. There will be no chance to get cold feet at this sizzling party! This elegant wedding will be no stuffy ceremony, so join in if you want to see the charming couple let their hair down one last time before they walk down the aisle!
Sanjay, I’m a bit confused by this. Is it an invitation to the wedding itself, or an engagement party before the wedding? I am sure that you have different customs than we do so perhaps that is why the last phrase has me confused. Up until then, it sounds like an invitation to the wedding. But then you say it is before they walk down the aisle. We always have the wedding ceremony first, followed by a reception or party.
Tying the knot can be replaced by getting married.
Take the plunge with them doesn’t really fit too well, since the guests aren’t actually taking the plunge. Instead, they are watching the couple take the plunge. I might say celebrate with them or join them.
A sizzling party where the couple lets their hair down does not match with the description of elegant. Is the wedding ceremony elegant and the party afterwards the part that will sizzle?
