I’m not having one and I’m honestly not trying to be rude, but I’m curious as to how you plan to get guests to leave after their invited portion of the day is over? Or are you having an opposite tiered thing where more people get invited later? The ones I have seen discussed previously on this site are usually like 100 guests to ceremony, but only 60 invited to dinner or something. I don’t know how those go smoothly. But opening up to more guests as the night goes on would be pretty easy I’d think.

Ah gotcha! I think the other way around is bizarre ๐Ÿ™‚ so I was thinking WTF this might be awkward! But your way is fine, I wouldn’t be offended if I was invited to the best (fun) part at the end of the night but nothing else. As long as the invites are clear so people know what time.

I’m not doing that but I think it should be fine, is there a way to break it up and have a coffee hour after dinner before the dancing starts that way the 2nd tier of guests don’t come in feeling like they’ve missed something?

Kind of like a belated cocktail hour, but with coffee and sweets starting then, cut the cake maybe half hour after the time the 2nd tier should arrive, and then straight into the dancing. Maybe save your first dance for after the cake cutting? Again this would help the 2nd tier not feel slighted as they wont feel like they missed anything ๐Ÿ™‚

@Sassy9226:  Its what budgets allow ๐Ÿ™‚ My wedding is apparently a slightly “tiered” because my mother has insisted people that I do not want at my wedding can come to the church anyways. (to put in context… I volunteer for Girl Guides and I did not want my Sparks coming, but my mother is friends with some of the parents and they’re invited, but I was specific in that I did NOT want the children there as I want to be ME not “Bubbles” for the night)
