I decided to make a Flip Flop Basket for our reception, because I was at a wedding last year and ...
So I was just enlightened by a friend about an idea about inviting guests. Apparently you can invite people to the ceremony and dancing (reception) but not the dinner. That way the people you may be iffy about inviting still get the chance to celebrate with you but you don't have to pay for their dinner which is the most expensive part of the budget - as terrible as that sounds but we all know how much a wedding costs!!!
I feel like this solves so many problems!! We'll still be able to invite people to celebrate in our day without breaking the bank and going into terrible debt....I felt like the biggest stress of the wedding was solved!! lol
So what do you ladies think of this idea? I wanted to get your opinions! Do you think it's cheesy or inconsiderate? If we were to send out invites to some people who are more acquaintances that said something along the lines of
"Ceremony at 5:00pm
Join us and celebrate with some fun and Dancing at 8:30pm" ?
Other brides that have done this... how have you worded your invites and did you need an RSVP?
