    What is a JP?

    I’ve generally seen priests invited to the reception after a wedding, but not a justice of the peace. I think usually when I priest performs the wedding, the priest has a close relationship with the couple, so attends the reception. Usually you just hire the Justice of the Peace without having a strong prior relationship, so you don’t want him there particularly, and he doesn’t particularly want to spend the time at the reception.

    My Justice of the Peace is my Daddy … retired judge … so he’s invited! He does a lot of weddings now that he’s retired and he usually stays for the reception if he knows them and my mother goes if they both know them.

    Do you know your JP? If not, I’m sure he would love an invite but not be bothered if he didn’t get one. I just think it is a nice gesture to involve him and his wife since he’s already involved so much anyway.

    Good lucky with your day!!
