So yesterday I got my wedding date set (YAY! September 17th) and of course I went on Facebook. People were excited and my cousin D. said she wants a lot of pictures. My mom asked if she was going and D said she might but with 6 in her family (herself, her husband and four kids) it was going to be pricey and she lives out of state. I totally understand! The thing is, I am not having children at the reception and so I don’t even know if she would be able to come or not but it’s unlikely she could. Although I would love it if D came, I know that it is not likely she would. My question is, do I send out an invitation to her anyways? I don’t think she knows it is an adult reception. I don’t want her to feel left out or be forced to come.

Yes. You send it anyways. Let her decide that she can’t come.
Congrats on picking a date!

I would still send her an invite, my childhood bestfriend has 3 little ones and so I figured she wouldn’t be ablel to come but I sent her and her Fiance an invite anyways in the hopes that maybe her FI’s parents could take the kids and maybe give them a night out!

I would send her one anyway, addressed only to her.

Definitely send her an invitaton! You might be surprised… One of my dearest friends lives on the west coast and was unemployed from 12/06 until 03/10 when he got work with the census. His temporary job has ended, BUT he called in some favors and approached friends in the travel business & sent me his itinerary the other day!
Congrats on setting the date and ENJOY your planning and your special day! I hope “D” can make it

Invite her, but I would specify on the invite that it’s an “adult reception” and make sure the invites are only addressed to the parents.

I would definitely send an invitation. Even if you know she is unable to come. Like the other girls have said, you never know, she may be able to make it. I think adult only receptions are becoming more and more popular, so I am sure that she will understand 🙂 Congrats on setting a date!!

Yup, I’d just send it anyway. Let her figure out if she can swing it or not.

And be careful about posting too much info about the wedding on FB – you might get people coming out of the woodwork asking if they’re invited (awkward!)!

I agree, send her an invite anyway. Just make sure she knows it’s an adult only event
