Gabrielle Union has already expressed that many of the people sitting around expecting to receive an invitation to her wedding to Dwyane Wade probably won’t be getting one. At this point, those close to the couple are probably already aware of who’s in and who’s out. Recently, those lucky enough to make the cut were made hip to the rules of the engagement when they received their official wedding invites. It appears that Gabby and Dwyane are running a pretty tight ship.

The invitation was accompanied by a letter from the couple, revealing what will not be allowed at the ceremony in order to protect their privacy. Ironically, the letter and the invite were both leaked to TMZ. The note reads:

To our family and friends,

We are looking forward to sharing this very special day with you. For the comfort of our guests and to protect our privacy, no cameras or cell phones will be permitted at the party. Also, photo IDs will be required for all guests. Gentlemen, formal attire in black; ladies, we would love to see you in formal white.

Transportation to and from the party venue will be provided from the [redacted]. Buses will depart promptly at 9:45pm from the North-North entrance of the hotel; please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure to process through security. If you choose to drive yourself, please call [number omitted] hours prior to the event at [address omitted] for directions to the venue (located approximately 45 to 50 minutes south of South Beach). Once on-site, you should allow at least 30 minutes to process through security at the venue.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. See you soon!

Love, Gab and Dwyane

As previously reported, the ceremony is set to take place August 30 in Miami.

The countdown begins!

    Haha who do they think they are, the Prince and princess of England? No body is trippin’off them and their mockery wedding.

  • bloop

    that doesn’t sound like a wedding, sounds like vip of a club!

  • DoinMe

    Is this a wedding or a boot-camp people will be attending? These instructions and that flyer seem just as cold and empty-hearted as she is.Nothing warm or fuzzy about either of them.

  • applesauce585

    Perhaps all this extra security/id is for “Siovaughn and Friends” the first Mrs. D Wade, lol. Nothing like a “bitter” ex-wife to infiltrate “the wedding nuptials.” lol

    How sad that an invited guest got this invite to the media. It’s always someone in the inner circle calling the tabloids, not who they usually think it is. This man has an ex-wife who still seems to be bitter about their break up and has dealt with it erratically. He also has past lovers, one he recently made an infant with. This is Gabby’s day. I would have strict rules in place too. Not only are celebs targeted by nuts but some people they know too. The person who got this invitation to the media is probably someone they were going to have issues with if his/her cell phone was allowed anyway. Now that this has been released anyone can figure out when to show up, hence, the photo ID. Whether you like this couple or not it is their day.

      Girl, Bye!!!!

  • Milania

    What if someone needs to be reached in case of an emergency what happens then? Some people are just selfish you would think she was royalty or something and the entire world was waiting with baited breath for her photos NOT!!! I am just waiting on seeing whose gonna be the next baby mama!

  • Fair and Balanced

    Okay let me get this straight she is laying down the rules for her wedding, okay got it. Apparently she is laying down rules for the wrong people, rules or commitment did not stop her soon to be spouse from having a baby on the side now did it?

    • Kambriel

      Maybe this is why she is doing it now better late than..never mind lol

    • Guest

      How do you know what the rules of their relationship are?

    • Ha!! Lmaooooooooooo yess!!!

    • Genia W-m

      Evidently she had no issues with that. One thing I’ve learned is you can give people suggestions but they’re going to do what they want anyway regardless if it ends in heart ache.

  • What is she worried about? Even if her pics leak,even if wade’s baby mama crash the part,girl we know you’re frontin,nothing can shock anybody now,anyway congratulations,i usually tell newlyweds that trust and communication are very inportant but im sure you know already.

    • Kambriel

      Right she is laying down rules like the world is waiting with baited breath for her nuptials. I wish them both luck but she needs to realize the only one holding their breath waiting for this wedding to happen is her.

      • Right??? I feel like she is going to make dwayne’s life a straight living hell. As soon as he says i do,she will have his bawls
