Actually, no.  If friends and family understand, then who cares what other ppl think?  I would come regardless if I was invited to the reception instead of the both.

We’re doing that. We’re having only 40 people at the ceremony because we want it intimate and limited to family and close friends, and then we will later have a reception with over 200 guests 😀 It’s pretty common where I grew up and people don’t seem to mind about it.

It’s your wedding do what you like. After all I’ve been through I wish I only had 50 people.

Go for it. We are probably going to do that with our 1st wedding. We are planning a very intimate ceremony at city hall. If its in the budget we may celebrate later on with a few friends/family. Next year will be a vow renewal & reception. As long as everyone is clear up front then I don’t see the issue.

@DaLadyA:

We’re also having them the same day. The ceremony is followed by lunch (for this less people) and then later in the evening there is a dinner for the reception for more people. However, the venue for both are different (ceremony is at home for us, and reception is at a hotel pool side). What we’re doing for the invite is that we’re using pocket style where the main invite is for reception and the ceremony invite is one of the insert cards, so we put it just for the people who are invited for both.
