Hi all, I’m a newbie!
Getting married August 2014. Sent out most of our invites now. We are having the ceremony, meal & reception all at one venue – maximum number for the day is 90 whilst the evening is 120. With family & closest friends, we are at 89. This excludes plus ones, partners of guests who we haven’t met/don’t know well & some guests children. It’s not a child free day – we have our own children and there will be some nieces & nephews.
Is if acceptable to invite just friends to the day and then their partners and children later in for the evening? It’s not financial- hot buffet is only £20pp!! It’s genuinely down to numbers and this is stressing me big time.
It’s worth mentioning here that these few friends are people I’m not really in that much contact with- one didn’t even invite me to her baby shower but has already expressed her disappointment at not receiving her invite yet & the other doesnt really bother with me either (!) it sounds silly but only really inviting them to keep the peace!
