Bryllup Etiquette: Kan du kun invitere nogle gæster til ceremonien?

It’s not unusual for couples to get married in the presence of only a few of their closest family members and friends and then celebrate with a larger crowd later. The reason can be anything from keeping the ceremony intimate for a dream with low capacity for the big fear (and costs) associated with saying “I do” in front of 200 people.

Men hvordan gør du det uden at fornærme gæster, der ikke er en del af HEL prøvelser? Amber Harrison, Wedding Paper Divas stil og etiketekspert, proposes to include an insert or send a separate invitation with details of the ceremony for the selected guests invited to listen to your promises. Sørg for, at der ikke er nævnt ceremoni på invitationer sendt til dem, der kun kommer til receptionen. Husk: Most people are looking forward to the party, so jump over the procession’s surprise – probably not a great thing for many of your guests anyway.

Mænd gør det modsatte – Invite everyone to the ceremony, but only a few guests for an evening meal – is a completely different story. Med andre ord: Det er et nej. “Anyone invited for engagement, wedding or ceremony should be invited to reception,” says Harrison. “Min anbefaling ville være at kaste ned invitationlisten indtil du er i et sted, hvor du kan råd til at invitere dem, der fejrer din bryllupsceremoni, til at deltage i en fest på den store dag.”

Designers and Bridal Experts Valerie and Stephanie Chin agree: “It would be rude to invite them only to the ceremony, as it gives the impression that ‘I want you at the ceremony, but do not want to pay for your dinner plate.’ You will definitely not give a print on your store day. If you have always imagined a big wedding ceremony with many guests, you should also have a large reception. “

Think about it this way: Each of your guests has invested time and money to be together with you on your day. Sådan viser du dig, da du er speciel for dem. They do not want to feel you do not appreciate it.

If you’re on a tight budget, see the list just shortcuts family and friends – or consider having a DIY cocktail-style reception with drinks and light snacks instead of an evening meal. In this way you reduce the cost of your receipt og komme til at tilbringe tid med dine gæster. alle af dem.
