    you don’t send vendors invites – that’s what contracts are for.

    it’s polite to invite the officiant and spouse to the reception. if you don’t have a relationship with him/her, chances are they’ll decline.

    I think if its a “friendor” and there is no contract then yes you should send them an invitation. 

    I think it is typically nice to include the officiant to the reception (aka meaning you have to send them an invite) but this really may only be if you personally know them or are comfortable with them. 

    The one thing I forgot to do, was keep an invitiation aside so our photographer could photograph it.  I didn’t want to send her one in the mail because it might get beat up but I wish I had one for her on the day of.

    We know our officiant, so they got an invite.  Our photographers are not personal friends, so they didn’t get one.

    I agree that if its a friendor (regardless of how close you are with them) you should invite them to the reception and send an invitation. Our officiant and musician were both friendors and we sent invitations to both and both came to the reception. If you are having a destination wedding and any of your vendors are traveling to get there you should also invite them to the reception.

    @Pomapoo: Your contract is their invite.

    BUT if they are a friendor, I’m sure it’s a nice gesture.
