This is something I randomly got to thinking about today. Do people directly involved in the wedding need invites? I’m talking about parents, Bridesmaid or Best Man, Groomsmen, siblings. Basically anyone who is exceptionally close and already has the date set aside because they are directly involved in some way.

Yes! These are the people who are most likely to keep them as keepsakes.

I’ve always been under the impression that they still get invites. I know I did when I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man and we’re sending out to everyone as well

@AB Bride: Just saved me the trouble of writing that. Ditto!

Invites went out to all family and people directly involved in the wedding when I was planning mine.

Absolutely. Everyone invited to our wedding received an invite, including our parents and bridal party members. They’re still guests afterall, just VIP’s.

Yes I think so. I’m not sure what the protocol is for it but I think it is a nice gesture. I know my mom requested that my married siblings send her a formal invitation so she could keep it for her memory books. Also I think even people really involved with the wedding would like the thoughtful gesture of a formal invite! Just my two cents…

I figured it was the traditional, polite way of doing things. I honestly just couldn’t think of any invite I’ve received when I’ve been a part of someone’s wedding. And we’re not very keepsake oriented people (neither set of parents nor my sister have anything but pictures from their weddings)
lol idk it was just a random thought

Invites must go to ALL people invited to the wedding (apart from you and Fiance of course). That includes parents and the bridal party.

Yes! These people are probably looking forward to the invitation the most!

Yep!! I actually gave most of our immediate family/close friends invites myself. I wanted to see their reaction to our invite suite, and it was really fun.

Yes! We sent all of our dearest friends that were involved and knew about our plans invitations, including a stamped RSVP card. They’re getting a kick out of sending it back to us via snail mail even though they could RSVP online or jut give it back to us.

Yes! It’s something the wedding party/VIPs are proud to take part in…I always love when I get them for weddings/showers I’ve worked on.
