My actual wedding ceremony is close family and VERY close friends, with everyone else invited at night! I’m worried that I’ll offend people who I invite on my hen do’s (1 abroad and 1 at home) when they agree to come but then only get invited to the night do???
Perhaps send out your invites before planning your hen do - this way when they are asked to the hen do they are already aware of the part of the wedding they are invited to. I have some of my evening only guests coming to my hen as well, none of them - as far as I am aware - are offended.
I doing the same thing most people no that the main service is for family and the evening is for friends dont worry just enjoy x
I would never expect to be invited to a full day wedding just because I was at a hen do. I have been at several hen partys myself and most of which was evening only invite. I would never assume I would be getting a full day invite.
Anyone who kicks up a fuss should be set straight. My wedding ceremony is family only and only the closest friends (they are part of the wedding party) and I have made this extremely clear to everyone else. Nobody seems to have an issue with it.
Im doing same, if people r offened their loss its ur day enjoy it xx
I'm doing the same, i wouldnt worry too much xx
Most ppl dread being invited all day and would rather just go to evening do. It's a long day!
I've been on hen do's where I've been to the full wedding or just the evening do, at the end of the day it's your wedding, your budget, your choice. If people get offended then to me personally, they aren't worthy of an invite to either part of your wedding!
I totally had to do that as I was on small budget but it worked out fine , if real friends they will understand ... Xx
I’m the same, small intimate ceremony in the afternoon and everyone else coming at night, just explained to everyone that was our choice but would hope they could party with us in the evening xx
I'm doing exactly the same. I have found people understand when I've said I want small and intimate day but a PARTY in the evening! The party is the best bots for most guests anyway!!!
Not at all. I was invited to a hen do and then only the night for one of my friends
I sent out save the date and save the evenings before I organised and invited people on my hen xx
I was told when doing my guest-list, if they will be offended by only being invited to the evening they shouldn’t be invited at all... 🤷🏻♀️
You can’t please everyone, that’s what we’ve found out. It’s a privilege having an invite in the first place be it evening or full day.
I've gone past it now, you can't please everyone and its your wedding day! About you and your h2b xxx
Some of the people invited to my hen do may not even be coming to the wedding. I wouldn't worry xx
