We sent them out to everyone (even parents).  Some people might want to keep a copy of the invitation.

Some of them presumably have spouses and live-in significant others; you’d want to invite them on the same invitation.

Yes, we sent invites to everyone (wedding party and parents). It’s nice to have all of the wedding info on a card to reference times and locations, and some people like to keep the cards for a scrap book.

Yes.  I sent them out to all guests including parents and our officiant (who is a family friend).  I also included guests for the single BM/GM.

Yes, it’s obvious that your bridal party is coming.  However, they’re most likely to tell you how gorgeous they are and want them as a keepsake.

Yes, I think it’s important. I was just in a wedding where an invite wasn’t sent, and we had no idea where the wedding was or what time it started at until very last minute, so I think it’s a good thing to send it for practical reasons, plus it’s nice to have a keepsake too.

Yes because they are still guests. Same with parents. Plus, if you need their dinner choice, that is how they will get it to you. Not to mention, they may wish to save them as keepsakes.

Yes.  Invites go to everyone who is invited, no matter their role in the wedding and all the details they may already know.

Yes def… It would be a good idea. That way you can keep track of meals too! 🙂

I think they should be sent to everyone too!!  It’s a nice keepsake to have, plus just in case people forget the details, they have them.  I’ve been in several weddings and only got a formal invitation to 2, and I’ve kept them both.  I wish I had them for all of them, but the brides had reasons for why they didn’t and it wasn’t a big deal at all.
