Yes!  These are the people who are most likely to keep them as keepsakes.

I’ve always been under the impression that they still get invites. I know I did when I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man and we’re sending out to everyone as well

Invites went out to all family and people directly involved in the wedding when I was planning mine.

Absolutely. Everyone invited to our wedding received an invite, including our parents and bridal party members. They’re still guests afterall, just VIP’s.

Yes I think so. I’m not sure what the protocol is for it but I think it is a nice gesture. I know my mom requested that my married siblings send her a formal invitation so she could keep it for her memory books. Also I think even people really involved with the wedding would like the thoughtful gesture of a formal invite! Just my two cents…

Invites must go to ALL people invited to the wedding (apart from you and Fiance of course).  That includes parents and the bridal party.

Yes! These people are probably looking forward to the invitation the most!

Yep!!  I actually gave most of our immediate family/close friends invites myself.  I wanted to see their reaction to our invite suite, and it was really fun.

Yes! We sent all of our dearest friends that were involved and knew about our plans invitations, including a stamped RSVP card. They’re getting a kick out of sending it back to us via snail mail even though they could RSVP online or jut give it back to us.

Yes! It’s something the wedding party/VIPs are proud to take part in…I always love when I get them for weddings/showers I’ve worked on.
