I honestly would just not due the website RSVP. Although it’s nice and efficent, it can be very confusing with these different events. I would just stick to the mailed RSVP so people know what they are invited to and can only RSVP for those events.

@Bella_Samuella:  I agree with MrsN14. Do the mail invitations and RSVPs and avoid the possibility of this happening entirely. Chances are that you’ll already have some awkward conversations with people who heard about the second reception through the grapevine.

We’re using AppyCouple for our wedding website.  You have the option of only allowing certain people to see certain events that they’re invited to.  That might work for you.

@Bella_Samuella:  I found that they tweet promo codes quite often as well, so you might be able to get a pretty good discount.  I think I ended up paying $10 or $15 after a good code was tweeted.

If you haven’t already solved this, I would do two seperate websites, and just provide the appropriate one to the right parties.

I would start calling the follow-on party something different than “reception” because you’ll confuse the heck out of your non-Hindu friends that aren’t used to this. Then invite everyone to the ceremony and THAT reception, and send separate invites to the afterparty or whatever you’re going to call it.
