I don’t think so but maybe word it like that to friends “Im having a small wedding and I entered a contest where I need votes.” Then you sort of set expectations up front. My friends have asked me to vote for things like cutest pet, kid, etc where I know there is no party but still I didn’t get anything. I was just being a friend.

I think it’s in slightly poor taste, although I know people do a lot worse.  I’ve been invited to showers where gifts are clearly expected, but then gotten a very smiley “I hope you understand that we have limited capacity and can’t invite everyone to the wedding” speech.  At least you’re not doing that!

If I were in the contest, I wouldn’t ask non-invitees to vote, but that’s me.  I’ve been trying not to talk too much about my wedding to people I know I can’t invite.  If you do it, chances are not everyone will be thrilled to jump right in, but I don’t think it’s a huge faux-pas.

If you mass post it on Facebook no big deal.  People do it all the time.  If you email it out I would stick to the guest list and add a note to them to forward it on to whoever they think would vote.  Good luck!!
