You were only invited to the wedding ceremony but not the reception...would you still attend ?
I would be mad and hurt. If I really wanted to see the ceremony,I would go and sit where they could not see me.
What is the purpose of inviting people to the ceremony only?
The only reason that I can fathom is if you have friends and relatives that don't approve of what is going on at the reception like drinking and dancing. If that is the case, do a cake and punch at the wedding venue and have a separate invitation for a "party" later or even a different day.
I would not attend
Like you were angling for a gift but didn't really want my presence.
I'd feel like you truly get me. I'd have the thoughtful unvitation to feel included without the guilt that accompanies not wanting to go. In truth, I'd like it more if you sent out announcements with a sweet photo AFTER the wedding, but I digress.
Couples should do what makes them happy.
No I love receptions --weddings --not so much
I have heard of being invited to the ceremony, and the "reception", but not the dinner...like some people have only family at the dinner, but then the reception is friends also.
Maybe..that is just weird. My co worker's daughter sent me a save the date for her wedding in Nov., but they just had her shower and I was not invited. I thought that was weird.
