Day #21 - Guest Etiquette
I was recently asked this question - How do I feel about inviting someone to the wedding ceremony, but not the reception? In my opinion...don't. The worst thing that could happen is the "uninvited reception" sees the completed wedding invitation or speaks with an "invited reception guest during the ceremony and hurt feelings evolve. If you are limited in who you can invite to your wedding reception, just send those guest a wedding announcement after your nuptials to avoid unnecessary conflict.
There are also some rules of etiquette that must be considered. If you send someone a Save The Date, they should also be on the final guest list to receive the official wedding invitation. Also, if a guest is invited to your bridal shower or couple shower, it should be your intentions to invite them to your wedding day celebration as well. Otherwise, it looks like you "used" them for a gift.
Until next time...WEDologize!
