I might cut them from the formal invite list. Does this sound bad?
    Not to me, we did the same thing :o)

      What about inviting them to the dance only? Then, if they want to come to wish you well they can... but your dinner and ceremony is still an intimate affair.

          Yeah what's a buck and doe?

          I wouldn't invite them. Easier said than done I know. But still if you really wanted them there, you would have invited them. I still don't get how people can ask to be invited or say "I better be invited when the time for your big day comes around."

          Here's my take:

          1. May I sleep with your husband?
          2. Have you gained weight?
          3. Is your acne acting up again?
          4. Are you pregnant? You look like you have gained some weight.
          5. Are you inviting me to your wedding?

          All of the above are rude and tacky things to say to people, and I till this day do not understand how people still have the audacity to make these rude comments. I mean seriously people need to get some tact.

            You poor, poor, non-Canadians :P A Buck & Doe is a big party that's thrown for the bride & groom to help raise money for the wedding....kind of like a big combined bachelor & bachelorette party :)

            I say don't invite them...just let them know that it's just a small affair and invitations are already out :P

              A buck and doe is a party us Canadian's throw to raise money for the bride and groom. Its a big party where you pay to get in and the drinks are cheap (but the B&G are still getting profits) and there are games and dancing and lots of drunken people spending lots of money to help out the B&G to pay for their wedding.

              Laura, You better invite me or else. lol Just say no. Tell them its a small intimate ceremony of just close friends and family and you would love to invite them, but are sorry.

              Still invite them to the buck and doe, everyone goes to that, not just people coming to the wedding, so do not worry about that at all.

              FYI, when you are planning your B&D, have your MOH email me, I know all the cheap halls in Barrie, I had to research it for my sister's B&D.

                No shit! You mean we're not just getting screwed on healthcare? Now we're screwed out of wedding fundraising?

                Damnit, my company has an office in Canada---- I think I need to transfer!!!!

                  BTW- now that I know what a Buck and Doe is---- I like Robin's idea...

                  If the people really want to come to your wedding, then send them an invite to this party and if they show, they just earned their chair at a wedding table...

                    Shut the hell up! You invited people to come party and drink and they pay to get in and it helps raise money for the B&G? Wow Canada is awesome! I have never heard of such a thing! AMAZING! Maria maybe we should have Michael Moore do his next documentary on this!
