Absolutely. She’s still a guest so she should get an invitation.

From what I understand yes, you even send them to your parents (even if they’re paying for it, have been involved in planning, etc…)

Call me Ms. Tacky Bride, but I waited to see if I had any invitations left before I gave my bridal party any. ((I bought the DIY kits from Wal*Mart)) And although I do have some left, I did address them to the bridal party, but I will be hand delivering them as I see them. Anything to save $1.

Ettiquette says yes, but I don’t think anyone will scorn you for not doing it!

I’m sending one to everyone…including my parents. They’re all so excited to see them, so I’ll keep them included, and happy. It’s expensive, yes, but they’re my family and I am thankful they’re excited 🙂

And about my BMs..same story…they just really want to see them and show their friends, etc.

I’m going to because

#1: It is always fun to get something in the mail
#2: Not all of them live in my town, so I want them to stay informed
#3: They have no excuse for not knowing all the details
#4: It reminds them that the day is fast approaching & last minute things need to get taken care of without me having to remember to remind them again! – like alterations, travel arrangements, hotel accomodations, etc.
#5: I love my invitations and I want everyone to see them 🙂

I think it’s nice to do. I keep most wedding invitations that I receive.

Yes – I’d be a little peeved as a Bridesmaid or Best Man to not get sent an actual invitation.  I need to know wedding details too!

Yes, I sent invites to the bridal party. After all, they are guests too and also that way they have all of the information.

Send to everyone, provide one to your photog so they can take pics, keep one to incude in your wedding album. If you run low you can make color copies on card stock and trim them to size.

I will echo a lot of the above posters and say, YES! You absolutely should send one to your bridal party.

Send one to everyone… and just for fun send one to yourself!  You’ll be able to have a keepsake postmarked card to keep!  You may not think it’s a big deal to have it now… but as you get older you may wish you kept one…  My mom and her bridesmaids… who were all mutual bridesmaids now take girlfriend trips together to the beach… and have started a scrapbook of memories… from then and now…  They have been best friends since middle school and my mom was “assigned” the wedding pages… she decided that she wanted them to have their invitations on their page along with the photo because it tells about their family as well as about their individual wedding days.
