You don’t have to reciprocate, that’s a total myth. Since you aren’t close to them, it’s totally fine to leave them off the guest list. They should understand that every wedding is different.

@VAwife:  Agreed.

@LadyElva:  I’ve never heard of people going to such lengths as colored invites to segregate those who can and can’t attend either ceremony or reception. That’s straight up rude! Like VAwife said, you don’t have to reciprocate.

I can’t imagine traveling for a wedding only to find out you weren’t invited to the reception! I would have been livin.

In this case I don’t think you should have to reciprocate. I am inviting a few people who I feel I’m required to invite since I attended their weddings. We’re having a destination wedding so hopefully they’ll decide not to make the trip. I know that sounds awful..but they were just courtesy invites.
