Ok, so I know you send invites to the party as a formality…but I don’t include RSVP cards, right? I already know that they will all be there along with their SO/spouses, so I don’t see the point of having them send a RSVP. I just don’t know the protocol for this, so, help meh! 🙂

Also, our officiant is a good friend that we also want to attend the reception, I send an invite right? It’s a given he’ll be there, and I haven’t sent one to my photographer or DJ and they’re also friends…so help with that also would be appreciated.

You don’t have to give any of your vendor friends an invite unless you have extras. It’ll make them feel special, and they’ll definetly be there at the correct time. RSVP cards aren’t that much more, but if you have the option on not ordering any for the wedding party then go for it, I don’t see a problem.

I still sent my wedding party invites, because their date or children situation could change and I wanted to give them the option to get creative with their responses…which they did :).

Also RSVP cards would be usefull if you need to know meal choices

I sent RSVP cards and insisted they send them back just because I loved receiving them in the mail and I jokingly told my Maid/Matron of Honor that she had to follow the “rules” too. 😉

No meal choices (buffet style appetizer bar!), they’re all married (MOH getting married 2 weeks before me) so that’s unlikely to change in 2 months and we’re not allowing children. All good points that I didn’t think about though, thank you!
I’m making everything by hand, and after 40 invites I’m starting to get tired so I was just looking to save energy/time.
