I was always under the impression that all guests get invitations including members of your bridal party. FI is a groomsmen in a wedding this August and was told we wouldn’t be receiving an invitation because he is in the bridal party.
I personally find this a little off putting. For starters I am not in the wedding party and would like to know where I need to be and when. In my mind this just means there are not enough invitations for everyone. I’m not offended, just kind of confused
So I guess my questions is: is not sending your bridal party an invitation a common thing? Am I being crazy here?

I sent my wedding party invites.

@agerard23: Everyone is getting an invitation. Bridal party, officiant, parents, etc. Even had one sent to myself.
When I was a bridesmaid (and my FI was a groomsman) in the same wedding, we still got an invitation.

I also asked this also previously, and most of the girls said that they sent it to them. That’s what i’m doing.

I’ve never heard of this, I thought everyone got an invite. Maybe they just ran out and figured your FI wouldn’t miss not getting one? Still strange to me though.

I’ve been in…I think it is 6 weddings…. and always got an invite. Plus I will be sending them to my wedding party as well.

I’ve never heard of that before – seems like fuzzy logic to me.

Thanks all- I would never not send my bridal party invitations- they are invited guests! I really didn’t know about head tables before I started wedding planning because they are not the norm in my circle/family, so I thought maybe this was something like head tables to me…

As far as I was and am concerned, EVERYONE gets an invite, regardless of whether they are a guest, the pastor, in the wedding party, or whatever.

We sent invites to our BP. As far as I’m concerned, they’re still guests just more important. I didn’t get an invite to my friends wedding in which I was a bridesmaid and I thought it was (dare I say…) the “t” word.

Why *wouldn’t* you send the invite? Like, are they too expensive? Or did she run out? weird… (I wouldn’t even consider not sending one, but I honestly can’t remember if I ever got one for the weddings I’ve been in.)

This happened to us before because the bride didn’t order enough invitations…

Why would you not send an invite to the wedding party? Never heard of that before. We sent invites to everyone!

I’m sending them to all my BP, they are also all invited with guests. I didn’t get one for the wedding I was in last year, but she ran out of invites after her MIL added another 10 ppl to the list…
