I think that’s perfectly fine, especially as you’ve asked for no gifts, as a lot of people may just think you’re doing some last minute gift-grabbing. You have to prepare for the fact that with only 3 weeks notice, a lot of your newly invited guests may not be able to make the wedding anyway though x

It’s totally fine, I extended our guest list about a month or so out once we realized how many people were actually declining. Just don’t specify no gifts though, that part is actually rude. Even though they are getting a late invite, they are guests just like everyone else and can buy a gift if they choose. By telling them not to you’re sort of admitting they don’t really count as guests.

@moderndaisy: I actually didn’t think about it that way. Yeah it is kinda like saying they aren’t really counted as proper guests seeing as they weren’t on the original guest list. Yeah I think actually not specifying anything about gifts is probably best x

Yeah, I think it’s ok too. I would leave off the “no gifts” though as moderndaisy said, unless you had specified this to all your guests originally.

I think they’ll be happy just to get the invite 🙂
