I need a little advise on how to handle… I am working on the invites for our wedding and am unsure how to word. My Fiance and I are having a family and bridal party only dinner. I was thinking just send reception invites to the other guests but I know there are people that would like to come to the ceremony. Do I just send the reception invites and leave it at that? I don’t want to offend anyone by excluding them from the dinner… we just can’t afford to triple the dinner list as our families are huge.

Hmm i guess I am a little confused. Are you wanting to invite people to the ceremony and reception with a break in-between while you and the bridal party eat?

There isn’t any way to word that without offending people. If you can’t afford the dinner for everyone, have the dinner on a different day as a completely separate event. Then serve cake and punch at the reception for everyone. That way, no one is offended and you don’t come across as rude. At the same time, everyone who attends the ceremony must also be invited to the reception and vice versa.
