So I am getting married in St.louis this fall…I live in Texas with my fiancee has tons of friends and distant family here in Texas that we want to include in the wedding but don’t want them to feel obgliated to travel all the way to St.Louis. We are having a reception a month after the Formal wedding in Texas that all those people will be invited to. So here is my issue….Do I send them a STD and formal invite to all the St.Louis festivites as well as the Invite to the Texas reception, or just an invitation to the Texas Reception. Help!!!!

Leave the choice to them. So send all the invites if they want to go they can.

I’m always thinking money… so I think if someone attends the wedding, then they shouldn’t necessarily attend the reception. I would invite those you are close to in Texas to the wedding, and everyone else to the formal reception later. But that’s just me.
Or you could invite everyone to the wedding, and those that can’t make it, send a special invite to the formal reception? I dunno, just a thought 🙂

Even though it’s more money, I say invite everyone and keep a list of those that can’t make the ceremony and then send them a separate invite to the reception

I’m doing the same thing here…it’s almost like planning two weddings!!! I’m sending everyone an invite to everything. So everyone will get a STD for the wedding, then a formal invite that will have the invite and rsvp card.
Then we have a second RSVP card and it says “For our guests who are unable to attend our wedding on April 21, we will be having an informal reception at home on May xx. Please check below if you would like to attend and the number of guests you will be bringing to the May event.” And then it’s just a duplicate of the RSVP card for the wedding.
