Has anyone been on the receiving end of only being invited to the evening...

Has anyone been on the receiving end of only being invited to the evening and been a tad annoyed? I completely understand why partner is invited to the ceremony and I am only invited to the evening as I'm planning my own wedding and understand the cost involved in numbers but it doesn't sting any less? Just curious to see others opinions! :)

Personally I could not invite one half of a couple to the day and the other to the evening only. Either invite both to the day or the evening only. I have a couple of guests coming to my day and I hardly know their partner but I simply can not invite both of them as they are a couple. x

I'd be upset, if my partner was invited to the day and me to the evening. I personally won't be separating any couples at my wedding between the 2 things x

I think i would be a bit peeved. We had a few people who we would have wanted at the ceremony but not their partners but didnt want to split them up, so they all only got invited to the evening. No one seems annoyed as far as i can tell.x

Hi that is what we are having to do as we can't afford a big do and some of our guests will only be able to come then through work commitments :)

I think that is a bit 'off' particularly if they havn't spoken to you about it. We will be putting couples on the invitations but know some of my friend's husbands/partners will mumble because they don't know us as a couple and might not want to get dressed up (I am just great mates with the girls) so I am saying to the girls that I am happy if they want to come on their own to the ceremony and then OH's join them for the BBQ reception that is fine by me.

That's a bit strange. My h2b is inviting his would have been best mans sister (he passed away a few years ago) and he's inviting her other half and their children and he's never met them! x

I'd be fuming! I don't know how your being so lovely, the thought never even occurred to me!

We didn't want anyone to be upset everyone is invited to everything
