I sent Save-The-Date Cards to my coordinator, venue coordinator, officiant, photographer, and florist (I think…)…   I will send an invite to my coordinator, officiant, and maybe photographer – but I’ll save a nice one for him to photograph later.

Congrats on getting your invites out!

We are sending one to the officiant, and one to the photographer.  Otherwise, I think we are not sending to vendors.

My photographer told me to send her one so she could get a nice photograph of it. We’re also sending one to the officiant. However, I don’t think we’re sending one to the DJ.

I think it is better to err on the side of caution and send invites to all your important/major vendors as a courtesy. That would include the DJ. My wedding coordinator told me this was a good idea awhile back.

If you have a contract with them, they’re going to show up to your event regardless of whether they got an invitation or not. Many people view their officiants as guests, rather than vendors, and will send an invitation to them. And like Bride2bee2009 said, sending one to your photographer would ensure that you get a nice picture of the invitation. Vendors are not guests at your wedding; they’re there to do a job.

I don’t think it really matters about the other vendors. Like rebecca said, as long as you have contracts, they are going to show up. However, you should always send one to your officiant as they are supposed to be treated as a guest at your reception and not as a vendor.
