So I’m having a Destination Wedding where we only invited close family members and friends. However, afterwards we are having a reception where everyone will be invited. In this situation is it okay to invite people to the shower/stagette that weren’t technically invited to the wedding but are invited to the at home reception???
Side note: Invites for the at home reception will already be out before shower/stagette.

I don’t see a problem with it – this is a different situation than the normal “I want them to come to the shower but not the wedding” thing. A lot of reasons go into not asking people to travel – money for one, distance, style of the wedding, etc. If they’re going to be celebrating with you at some point though, namely, when you’re back at home with your big at home reception, I think that’s fine. My cousins did that and nobody’s feelings were hurt – in fact, a lot of people were relieved that they didn’t have to make a huge trip, and were absolutely fine with the other traditional wedding aspects like attending the shower and the at-home reception.

@PuntaCanaBride: I think its fine. Even if you send them an invite many would not be able to make it. You’re good, proceed with your plans.
