Who to invite to wedding?

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I are getting married at Ib Bavaro in April 2011. I am trying to decide how to handle the invites. Our travel agent suggested we should send an invitation to the actual wedding to all the people we plan to invite to the reception back home, but to me that seems a little much considering it will only be close friends and family going who will be willing to pay to go with us. Do I send wedding invitations to everyone on our list, or only to the people that are likely to go and then send reception invitations to the rest closer to the date?

 

Thoughts!?

I would personally send invitation out to everyone and let them make the choice on if they do not want to spend the money to come. I’m not exactly sure what the proper etiquette is just giving my two cents. I know that for my wedding we sent invitation to everyone I know for a fact that some of the people that I invited will only be attending the AHR but I still felt obligated to send them invitation. However, my invitation or DIY and I’m not ordering them so I did have to worry about spending the money on them.

If you search the forum you will find tons of info on this and I have seen brides post multiple ways of how they handled who they sent invites to. I personally sent out invites to everyone even tho I knew that not many people would be ble to attend. I just wanted to make sure everyone knew they were more than welcome to join us if somehow they were able to swing it.

I would send invites to everyone you would like to invite, because I was pleasantly suprised at how many people actually decided to spend the money and come. I figured I would have 20 and ended up with near 50.

Less is more.  Trim your list down to those who you know might be able to afford going and those that you have to invite , well because, you have to (older aunt, close friend with big family that might not be able to attend, etc).

 

If you have not seen them or spoken to them in the last six months to a year.  THey dont need an invitation.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
