Everyday Etiquette – Ceremony & Reception Guest Lists

Question:

Is it okay to invite more people to the reception than to the wedding? I am just not sure how to handle this. Thank you for your assistance.

The Everyday Etiquette Answer:

Susan,

Of course, you may invite more people to the reception than the wedding. If this is your situation, then I recommend that the main invitation (larger card) be the Wedding Reception Invitation. What would be the Reception Card (smaller accessory card) becomes the invitation to the ceremony. Therefore, if you are inviting 100 people to the reception, you send them the larger invitations with the wedding reception information and only enclose the smaller card in the invitations to the 25 or 50 people that you want at the marriage ceremony.

I hope this answers your question. Thank you for asking Everyday Etiquette.

Have a wonderful wedding!

Ms. Carey
