I read the board about sending invitations to some people to attend Dance/party only, and am having some trouble with a similar situation.
I am having my reception in a hall, and we are already at max capacity of it, and have had to keep our guest list smaller than we wish to. We are also having it 2 hours from where we and our friends live, but it is in the city where my family is from, so we have many family friends in the area. We would love to invite them to everything, but we don’t have enough seats and want to make sure everyone who is coming from out of town are attending the ceremony, dinner, and dancing.
So, we were thinking of inviting some of the local family friends in the area to the reception only – BUT, rather than send them an official invite, we were thinking of going through word of mouth – i.e. my parents. They would let them know they could join us for the dance party/open bar at a certain time, and tell them NOT to bring us a gift, just their presence. Do you think this would be an okay option?
